Cool Update to Google Reader

So here I am reading in my Google Reader account scanning through the few hundred updates that I have today since I last checked it and what do I see… Mashable is reporting that Google made a tiny little change to service.

I raced over to the Google Reader blog to check it out for myself. Before the change if you wanted to add a subscription to your Google Reader account it required that the page had an RSS feed, but now thanks to this cool update that is no longer the case.

I’ve been using this feature for a number of years to keep track of cool sites so I don’t have to keep checking my favorites all the time. It has gotten to the point that I rarely even check my bookmarks…and there is a TON of them.

With the sites I check on a regular basis I have them come to my reader account then if the content is good I’ll go visit the site and finish reading. It saves me lots of time of endlessly going from one site to another. Now they don’t even need to have a RSS feed for me to add them.

Now it’s time for me to run out and check out all my favorites and see what I can add to my list.

Today is a GREAT day! Thanks Google
