When I really enjoy reading a blog article and want to share it with other people, I add it to google.com/reader/shared/ariherzog. I don’t add everything to this reverse chronological list. It has to meet certain criteria to enable me to return to the article time and time again.
Here is a list of 10 blog articles I recently shared:
