Question time: Google+ - Share or not to share?

Been looking Google+'s option for sharing/connecting your blog posts directly into your Circles account.

What I'd like to know is:

1) Have any of you done this?
    1a) If so, how successful has it been?

2) How much traffic has it generated for your blog, if any?

3) Are there any negative aspects to doing this?

Thanks in advance for any and all replies :)

Well I have a google+ account but I never use it.

My experience is the same as JoJo's. I'm on it but don't use it. I expect we all may be using it more soon, though, if the end of Google Reader is for real. That's probably exactly their thinking, in fact.

I use mine, and I believe a notification goes out to those in my circles. I'm not sure how much traffic it has brought me seeing as I have very few people in my circles.
But it hasn't had any unpleasant side effects yet.

Interesting to know. The last thing I want though is an increase in spam crap, as I seem to be getting folks adding me to their circles who have nothing to do,with writing, and are usually promoting some crap or other.
