A highly requested feature for Google Reader has finally been added: the ability to share items from any RSS feed through Google Reader Shared Items. Before you had to be subscribed to a feed in order to share items from that feed. This takes out a step. Check my shared items in the column on the right of this post. When I'm not feeling inspired to post, I'll try instead to read what others are blogging about and let that inspire me. And I want to share the articles or blog posts with others, because everything in there is something that inspires me to step my writing game up or fascinates me in some capacity. I see it as being having a virtual collection of interesting coffee table books; you've probably read them before, but you can leave them out there for anyone to flip through, knowing that you endorse them by seeing them on the table, So now I can share articles online with others more easily, and that's definitely something to celebrate.
Here's how you do it: Click this link and drag this link to your browser's toolbar and then use it to add any item from around the web to Google Reader.
