Google Reader

I don't know who uses the google reader that reads this blog, but it is the most wonderous fabulous thing ever. ALSO – weird thing about it – if you subscribe to janicu.vox.com it truncates the feed, while if you subscribe to janicu.livejournal.com, it does not. Just a tip.

I have about 50 or so subscriptions, (mostly book blogs) over there, and I figured out that you can share the interesting things you see in whatever blogs you are reading – so I did that. They also have a widget thingy which you can add to your blog, so I'm putting it up on the sidebar – will have things I think are interesting plus contests and giveaways that people are hosting in the blogosphere. No one can resist winning something 🙂 Now let's see if posting the widget here will do ANYTHING, otherwise look at the sidebar to the left at my vox screen. LJ won't let me put any javascript up for security reasons so I just have a link to my shared items instead.  If you see a big grey thing below, it didn't work.

  1. Ah, cool. It seems that the vox feed used to not be truncated and then suddenly one day it was. I didn't really bother to hunt down what was going on there. Thanks.

  2. Yes, I complained loudly to them when they did that. I told them that they should never change links/settings that users already have in place, they should just add new options. Making a previously full-feed link truncated really pissed a lot of people off.

  3. Ah, good that you complained. I have someone I work with who goes and tracks down things like this when I mention them to him (I sick him on them like a dog), but alas not for things I putter around on as a distraction.
