Speed Blogging: Using Google+ Hangouts On Air as a Screencaster

One of the things that stops me from screencasting more is the software involved. I used to use Camtasia and Jing, but they both had their limitations and sometimes I forgot to upload them after the time it took to save the video (seemed like hours).
I just started using Google+ Hangouts on Air and it is perfect for what I want to do.

Just click on Hangout on Air:

Then you are in your Google+ Hangout on Air! I don't invite anyone and just ScreenShare to make my video. It goes live on youtube while I make it and then it is saved on Youtube afterwards for anyone to see and me to share, no uploading!!!
