A big Thanks You! goes out to Steve Lacey, a Google employee who used his Google 20% time to build the one feature that I have been asking and waiting for from Google Reader. Thanks to Steve, you can turn any one of your Google Reader tags into a blogroll widget.
I have been waiting for this feature for a while now. I am constantly updating my blog reading list and with this widget feature I can now put a blog roll up that reflects my current reading. As I change my subscriptions, my blogroll will change automatically. I love widgets!
You’ll find two examples of this on the right hand side:
- My SOA-Related Blogroll: Blogs I follow related to SOA
- My SaaS-Web2.0 Blogroll: Blogs that I follow related to SaaS/Web2.0
If you use Google Reader, I think you will enjoy this new feature…make sure you tell Steve Lacey thank you!
