Google Reader Next Button

I’ve been using Google Reader for a very long time. Are you using Google Reader? If not, you should. Wow, I'm being bossy. Seriously, it's a great way of keeping all blogs subscribed in a neat list and instantly updates as soon as a blog post is written. Anyway, somewhere along the way I discovered a feature that’s been there since 2007: The next button.

As Google explains in the original post announcing the feature, “The ‘Next’ bookmarklet allows you to use Google Reader through just one link — clicking on it takes your browser to the next unread item in your reading list (marking it as read in the process). It’s also useful for subscriptions that only include snippets, or when I want to read an article in context.

If you’d like to grab yours, just go to “settings” and then “goodies” in Reader. It’s the best of both worlds: feeds in context. That means you get to visit each blog as it appears not just the content. My most favorite part of reading your blogs is to visit your creative space. It's blog reading with the ambience.
