UPDATE 11-August-2011: My 150 invitations have now been exhausted. However, other newsletter readers have kindly offered to share their extra invitations. Read the comments section below this article for details.
If you have extra invitations that you are willing to share, please post a comment below giving the link to your invitations.
In order to use Google's wildly popular Google+ social networking service, you must first receive an invitation from someone who is already a member. I am a member and about a month ago I offered to send an invitation to any newsletter reader who wanted one.
About 18 hours later, I had to rescind the offer as I used all 500 invitations that Google allowed. However, I now have more invitations and also have an easier method for you to receive an invitation. Unfortunately, this time I only have 150 invitations. First come, first served.
In order to accept the invitation, you must already have a Google account. If you have a Gmail account, you have a Google account.
To receive an invitation to Google+ (pronounced "Google Plus") from me, click here: https://plus.google.com/_/notifications/ngemlink?path=%2F%3Fgpinv%3DL-QyxtYYgwk%3Am-1lJNTPEq0.
On the next screen you see, click on "Sign In."
Once the 150 invitations are used, there will not be any more, at least not for some time.

Of course, if you haven’t done so already, you should join my email newsletter mailing list to stay current on my latest articles and announcements. You can also cancel at any time within seconds. I promise to never, ever send you any unrequested e-mail, other than newsletter updates.
