Sharing items,.

In the header of this blog, a few weeks ago, I created a link to my shared Google Reader page. Now I know a lot of you are used to this sort of thing already, but a few of you may not have tried it properly. If so, I think you should. If bloggers generally were to use Google Reader (and similar tools) more than they do, I think that we would all be able to find and read more better material that we do at the moment.

If you don't know how to use it, go to www.google.co.uk/reader and set up an account. Subscribe to all of your favourite blogs, and then - if you have a web-enabled mobile phone, you will be able to browse all of the blogs you like much more efficiently.

You can 'share' and 'add star' to anything you like (from your phone, if you want to), and you can put a widget on your site (like the green one on the right) on your blog. It means that you find it easier to read the blogs you like, and you can drive traffic to the posts that interest you. As a result, we all get to read less chaff and discover a wider range of material.

Just a suggestion....
