New widget

You may have noticed the box on the right side of this blog labeled “Things That Caught My Eye.” Here’s where that came from…

I had been using Pluck as my RSS reader. However, I recently switched to Google Reader.

Both readers have their pros and cons. But one of the nice things about Google Reader is that it can generate a little customizable piece of code I can drop into my blog. Now with a single click I can send headlines from Google Reader to this space.

Sometimes I stumble across interesting articles, but I don’t have the time to write something up to provide a link with. This will make it easier to share some of the items I find interesting with all of my loyal readers.

Hmmm... I don't recall teh Google folks mentioning anything about Firefox issues. I shall investigate.

Not to rock the boat but I use Firefox and I see the box fine.

By the way, interesting usage of the Google Reader to automatically add RSS feed content to your site.
