Like many other bloggers lately, I'm switching to the Google Reader for my day-to-day reading of blogs. I was not unhappy with the NewsGator Online + NetNewsWire combination I had been using, and I expect to use them occasionally. The one feature about the Google Reader which I really liked and could not resist is the ability to share posts so easily. That's what's powering the new "what I'm reading" sidebar item. These links are also available in a feed. It seems like a really easy way of making a linkblog. These days I am not exactly a prolific writer, but I generally do keep up my reading. Being able to publish a linkblog so easily is a way of blogging when I'm not really blogging. It's something I might be able to do on my mobile phone [go to google.com/reader/m and log in], when I'm on the train. I spend a lot of time on the train. Who knows, if I can do some of my blog reading on the train - maybe I'll have more time for writing when I'm at home?
