Between March 2012 and February 2019, Constant Noble founder Reginald Routhwick (under his real name) self-wrote or supplied commentary for over 29,000 posts on Google+, Google's former social-media outlet. Nearly all of these were hashtagged with "#WhatLiesAground," which first surfaced on June 28, 2012 and was intended as a behind-the-scenes look at his 2012 NaNoWriMo campaign, but over time quickly expanded its scope to cover not only his other creative ventures, but also other areas such as photography, entertainment (including animation), cartography, digital rights, current events, and the furry fandom.

Beginning in September 2023, this Miraheze-hosted archive (based on Routhwick's private G+ Takeout files, and originally intended for WordPress) will initially serve as a best-of collection, with more highlights to come over time. Be aware that while the commentary may still remain (although some posts may be slightly edited from their original versions), many photos, works of art, YouTube/Twitter embeds, and external links may no longer be available nor have a Wayback Machine backup accounted for; this applies especially for image uploads hosted exclusively on G+ that either vanished upon the service's April 2019 closure, or whose original users deleted their accounts or posts.

Routhwick would like to thank those who followed him, or met/talked with him online or (in Larry Fournillier's case) through video chat over his seven-year tenure, and wishes them the best in their current and future endeavours.
