Google Shared Items Anyone????

Like some others in the blogging world I was disappointed  to discover that my lovely little Google Shared Items was not able to be well.....shared anymore.

While not keeping mine as current as some friends I knew it was always there and I could keep tabs of what I was liking about others blogs. Because frankly there are a lot of blogs I like and and are inspired from and I often don't get to comment on a post that has tweaked my interest or encouraged me and I could keep keep it in my thoughts t by putting it in my shared items. Sadly now this is no longer an option and I am looking for  another way to do this.

Now I know also that some are trying out new ways of sharing items and most of these seem a trifle hard and complicated to organise. I also remember suggesting to Erin that we could share on Pinterest, but again it means a more complicated way of doing this.

However after discussion today I am wondering if anyone would be interested in a weekly Shared Items Post that we can leave a comment on or a linky too. Perhaps this is no less complicated than the other versions but I am just thinking out loud here.

So, I would be happy to coordinate if anyone is interested! Let me know if there is a need or interest in this please and I will follow it up.

Or if you have a super easy way to get my sharing happening again let me know.  I just know I am going to hate moving all those blog addresses to another site ☺

Blessings to you and your homes,

I got my share feature back. I already had a public "shared items" box on my blog sidebar and now shared items appear there again.

I wrote about it here:

It worked for me really quickly, and brought back the ever useful "share" button!

Hello Gae

Love the idea of sharing posts together :) Could I use your pretty graphic in this post ?

Here is a list of shared posts I put up recently:

and another

Not sure on a weekly one.

Dear Chareen,
Yes I was going to use this image for the shared items if anyone was interested and make a little cod for it. So yes use it please.

Dear Erin,
Knew you would :)

Anyone have a favourite day for this to happen on?

Dear Lillibeth, I will give it a try thank you but will still open up the idea of a shared weekly event

Hi Gae,
If you decide to go ahead with the shared item link idea, I would be interested in joining you.
I hope you work out a solution to your dilema!
It must be so frustrating.

Chareen said...

Thank you Gae. I've already added it in :)

I think a Friday would work as it's end of the week and we can add in what we have found on line.

Probably earlier/mid week would suit me, as I already have linky parties Friday/Saturday. then again if you pick later I'll just write earlier the next week and be late to the party:)
