New way of sharing links

As you know, I like to share links to all sorts of things: news articles, youtube videos, funny pictures, etc. Well in light of that, I have added a little box to the right that will have my shared links from Google Reader.

I use Google Reader to aggregate all the sites I check regularly (food, news, tech, culture) into one easy-to-check view. In fact right now I have 44 sites that I'm subscribed to, and that's how I'm able to keep up with all the happenings in the world (or more correctly, just the things I care about). If you're interested in more info about Google Reader, leave a comment and I'll help you set it up. Right now I scan through literally 500-1000 headlines per day, expand the headlines that spark my interest into full articles, and then obviously read those. It's actually really nice, and will broaden your internet-horizons.

As an added bonus, Google Reader can follow your favorite blogs, like mine!

Cliff notes: don't forget to look at my shared links to the right

Here is a little screenshot of mine, in case you want to know what a fully-stocked Reader looks like (click for full-size):
