Thanks to the Publicize module, you can automatically publish each one of your blog posts to your Google+ Profile.

On the Settings -> Sharing page click Add New. You’ll be taken to Google where you’ll be asked to approve the connection between your Jetpack site and your Google+ account. Click Accept.

Connect your WordPress site to your Google+ account

On the next screen, you’ll see a message confirming that you have successfully connected your Jetpack site to your Google+ Profile. You can also check the box to make the connection available to all users of the blog. This means that when another user creates a post it will also publicize to this Google+ connection.

Changing who can see your Publicized posts on Google+

By default, Google+ sets the visibility of your posts to “Only You”. You can change this setting when connecting your site to Google+, or later on by going to Settings > Manage apps & activities in Google+:
