I blogged at Google Plus (G+) from July 9, 2011 to November 5, 2018. When Google announced in October 2018 that it would terminate G+ for users like me, and delete all our posts, I began saving them to the Internet Archive (IA) and other locations. IA is also trying on its own to capture all the public G+ posts from all G+ users. I hope to say more later on how these efforts turn out. Meantime, here my major G+ posts. I list them here with the original G+ URLs (which may die after April 2, 2019) and the newer, permanent IA URLs. —Peter Suber.
