Would you like to add a clip of your Google Reader’s subscriptions to your site or blog? Here’s how to do it:
- Log-on to your Google Reader account.
- On the upper-right hand side of the screen, click Settings then Reader settings.
- Choose Folders and Tags menu. It’s right after Preferences and Subscriptions but before Goodies, Import/Export and Send To.
- If the folder of subscriptions that you want to share is still private, set its settings to public by checking the box before it then accessing the pull-down menu, Change Sharing. Select Public.
- Click Add a Clip to Your Site to share one to ten items on your Google Reader at your site or blog. You have the option whether to show item sources and item notes and you can choose among the eight color schemes as well. Sorry, there’s no further color and size customization allowed in the meantime.
- Click Add to Blogger to install the code to Blogger or you can copy the code and add it to your site.
I’ve been searching for ways to keep track of my subscriptions and had tried using desktop rss readers in the past. The problem with desktop rss readers is that you can’t access your subscriptions when you are using another device or computer. With Google Reader, you can view your subscriptions by logging on to any computer, laptop, ipod and other devices.
I’ll be transferring the rest of my desktop rss subscriptions from Mozilla Firefox’s add-on, Feed Sidebar, to Google Reader later. For now, feel free to check out my Reading List at the footer of this blog. I’m using the Pink Scheme clip for that.
