I’ve been a faithful Bloglines subscriber for years now, but I’m finally breaking down and trying out Google Reader to see if it clears up a problem I’ve been having with indexing new items. I hated the Reader interface before, but they’ve sped up the AJAX-y effects, which makes it a lot more tolerable. Anyway, the one thing I noticed immediately is that there doesn’t seem to be a way to share feeds like in Bloglines, just individual items. I’ll have to see whether I like that or not. In the meantime, maybe it’ll be like a linkblog for me. So, News From Afar, which used to require the reader to work to find interesting content, now changes over to me having to work to keep interesting content. 😐
