Incidentally, this was how I found that old post in G+ I looked up how to search for old posts in G+ and THIS was the best answer. Otherwise, if you haven't used a collection, or #hashtags, old stuff can be had to find. My search term was "how deceptively easy" which was unlikely to show up elsewhere. ;)

7 Tips On How To Find Your Old Google+ Posts or Comments
Joan Laine asked: Can you give me a tip on how to find a specific old post that I am looking for?
And I thought more people will be interested in learning how to do it with greater success:
1) This is how I find my old posts: search in G+ using your name and some of the terms you used in the post or comment you are trying to find.
2) Use "word1 word2" if you remember two words you used next to each other. If you cannot then just use word1 word2 without the " "
3) If you remember another plusser who posted or was tagged mentioned in the post or they made a comment to the post add their name to the search.
4) Continue searching different words. Longer strings of possible words.
5) Jaana Nyström suggested: Is it your own post? Then choose 'From you' in the dropdown after you have searched once.
6) Mark Traphagen in a post http://goo.gl/ZsTpH mentioned that if you remember the day and month of the post then add "23 May"
If you cannot remember the day then just add the month.
7) When you have searched click on the pause button. If you don't click pause posts will continue to scroll past.
BTW: I am not good at adding #tags but by adding it you may find your posts easier in the future. ;-)
EDIT: The Plussers added some more advice:
Kevin von Duuglas-Ittu you can also use http://ifttt.com/ and create recipe that archives all your posts to Twitter #hashtag or Evernote, etc.
