Moving to Google Reader

I’m in the process of moving my Bloglines aggregation settings to Google Reader. The features that I like abou Google Reader that prompted this move are:

  • I can add multiple tags to RSS feeds

  • Reader shows you what’s new (and also what’s old) in all feeds or across tagged items: no more navigating complex folder structures

  • the list display is easier to scan when you’re busy

  • it’s easy to share feeds or individual articles

  • you can replace the traditional static blogroll with a dynamic list of hot topics (see What’s tickling my fancy at left).

If only gmail had folders too!
