How can I get rid of the +1 Button?

A while ago this strange button appeared on my blog. I didn't ask for it, I don't like it, and I do not want it. Does anyone know how I can get rid of it or 'opt out'? After watching this video on YouTube I now know what it is...but I'm sure nobody else does. Is it on your blog too?

A Follower on Twitter sent me the instructions and I edited my template and removed the +1 Button without taking away the nice share buttons. Instructions here. So happy now.

I do not have one, but I have not connected my blog to facebook and I do not twitter.

It sounds good, but haven't begun to blog yet.

I should try it, but haven't begun blogging yet.

Yep Rosemary I just checked at the bottom of my blog and it is there! I had never heard of it although I do have Facebook and Twitter.
Personally (not to sound mean to any of my friends) but I do not really care what they recommend...and for that matter how rude that they don't just pick up the phone and take the time to call me with their helpful little tidbits.
What's next?

Hi Rosemary. I wonder if it's yet another way for Google to sell on market research. Big Google is watching you! :) If you go to the body of your blog you can get rid of it, but it does mean dispensing with the other publicity buttons.

I didn't know this either. Gonna have to take a look and see if it's on my blog.
