Martha Payne and the Story of Neverseconds: Take Two with new google+ embed code

On Sunday 17 June 2012, I made a post at this blog making sense and telling the story of Martha Payne and #neverseconds: (Martha Payne and the Story of Neverseconds: What I posted at Google Plus: Well Done Martha, You're a Star).

There were 14 Google+ posts which were copy and pasted into this blog. Yesterday, Google+ launched the ability to embed a g+ post into this blog.


Official Google Help page is also available.

What you see below is the same #neverseconds blog post using the 8 of 14 of the new code (that should be enough to make a comparison).

This post will then serve as a before and after test case. I have not reposted minus the opening paragraph an into video. The new blog post reads:

Post 1 9:03am: Dan McDermott +named me in a post. I reshare



Post 2 11:59am I'm watching the story, especially Google News and addition of the now recognised hashtag


Post 3 12:18pm Refers to the name and location of the school, especially as it has a Google Place Page
