Sifting and Sharing Your Favorites Using Google Reader

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m far from the being the “ideal blogger” that writes detailed, lengthy, insightful posts on a regular basis. I hope to one day become more faithful and substantive in my blog postings. However, right now, I find that the primary purpose I have for blogging is to share and archive quick information updates as well as post concerning new technology, tools, or approaches that I find interesting.

Often, what I want to do is to quickly tag a blog posting and aggregate it somehow with my other favorites. Google Reader has a very easy-to-use sharing feature that allows me to either on the web of mobile interface to mark a posting as starred and/or shared.

Shared postings are aggregated in a convenient location so that others can quickly see what I’m reading. To catch a glimpse of my recent shared items, click here.

While I will continue to post to my blog with select new tools or approaches that I find worth mentioning, I now have a much easier way to simply flag a posting as one I’ve found of interest and want to share with others. This is even easier than bookmarking a posting and adding it to my collection of delicious bookmarks.

If you are a Google Reader user and you’d like to follow my shared items from within Google Reader, just post a comment or shoot me an email with your email address and I’ll get you added.
