Google Reader Subscription Button

According to my blog’s statistics, Google Reader is becoming a popular online news aggregator. My main complaint with Google Reader is that it prefers to organize new posts by date or “relevance” and not by feed, so it’s not as comprehensive as older services (such as Bloglines), but Google Reader is actually a very efficient news aggregator if you prefer organization by date or “relevance”. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find an easy subscription button for Google Reader that matched the style of the rest of my easy subscription buttons, so I whipped this one up a few nights ago. Feel free to use it on your blog too.

What is "Free"?

What is “free”? “Free” is, “not imprisoned or enslaved.” “Free” is, “unconstrained.” “Free” is, “unobstructed, without blockages.” “Free” is, “without obligations.” “Free” is, “obtainable without payment” (Wiktionary). For the purpose of this monologue, “free” is something one receives without returning payment of some form.
