Google+ Sharing Feature for Blogger Blog

My ofiicial blog of GoldenTwine Informatics is on self-hosted WordPress. But I have a blog on Blogger as well that's not so active due to paucity of time.

Now on, if you have linked your Blogger blog to your Google+ profile, you will be presented with a Google+ share box immediately after publishing a post. The share box will be prefilled with a +snippet of your post that you can share with your circles on Google+.
