«Marf's Shared Stuff»

I'd like to point out a new widget in the sidebar: Marf's Shared Stuff. It will only show on the blog's homepage, not in individual item (aka blog entry) pages. This is deliberate.

I have it only show on the homepage because otherwise the sidebar is too long for many of the individual item pages. I've seen too many blogs with cluttered sidebars that seem to go on forever. They cause you to scroll down for a mile just for the sidebar's content; the post body itself is short. I don't want this to be one of those blogs.

You may also notice the widget has its own webfeed. (What is a webfeed? Click here for an explanation.) It is a separate feed from the blog's; so if you want to subscribe to it, you'll have to do so separately. I also have email subscriptions available. Again, separate from the blog's email subscription option.

I make no claims or promises of daily updating for the widget. If I see a random thing of interest on the Internet I'll share it if I think about it. I'll try to keep adult content to a minimum, so it should all be Safe For Work material.

In case you're interested, it's powered by Google Reader. It's a new feature they just announced. I think it's a pretty neat idea.
