I love my Google Reader. I’m quite happy with the look and feel (I tried Feedly but it was too troublesome for my zipping-through-articles style). Sharing and commenting on articles is quite a breeze within Google Reader and I like that I can just ‘broadcast’ without having to target specific contacts.
However the annoyance with Reader comes up when I want to share a particular link that I plucked up from somewhere, and have no intention of adding that column/blog/yadayada into my RSS feeds. Yes, I can share it via Facebook etc but I want the benefits of archiving the article for future reference too, à la Google Reader. I’m not looking for full-fledged social media tools though, but that might be nice.
Are there any programs, or even webapps out there that can do all of these? Emailing myself the articles is a workaround but the integration isn’t there. I thought of dumping the articles I’m interested into Evernote but it’s just too time-consuming to retag too, even if I have “Send to Evernote” enabled!
Any ideas, folks? Thanks in advance!
