Text only Google+ share link

I don’t really care for the standard social media share links. It’s not that they’re ugly per-se, it’s that they rarely fit a design well. That they’re ubiquitous and nobody even notices the design faux pas doesn’t change nothin’ for me. So it’s text-links only!

I thought as long as I’ve already got a Facebook text-only link tutorial, and a Stumbleupon text-only link, might as well do one for Google Plus:

<a href="https://plus.google.com/share?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>" onclick="window.open('https://plus.google.com/share?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>','gplusshare','width=600,height=400,left='+(screen.availWidth/2-225)+',top='+(screen.availHeight/2-150)+'');return false;">Google+</a>

That url (<?php the_permalink(); ?>) is a WordPress bonus. Change it up to what ever your CMS of choice uses for page links, or add it manually.
