In an attempt to connect with his fans, Digg’s founder Kevin Rose announced that he will now be forwarding his personal domain to Google+. His personal domain, kevinrose.com, was once used for his somewhat popular blog. In recent months, his blogging has slowed down — making forwarding to Google+ a smart move. Rose tweets:

Decided to forward kevinrose.com to Google+. G+ gives me more (real-time) feedback and engagement than my blog ever did.

Google+ is great for sharing longer posts, where you can get faster feedback from readers. Obviously, you can’t host ads on Google+ to make money off your posts, but we assume Rose isn’t too worried about that. Who said Google+ wasn’t catching on?
