Hooray! How to get your Share feature back in Google Reader

I have been wanting to rant about the cruel changes to Google Reader for days now. However, since this is The Pleasant Times I am a bit restricted from spreading gloom here! Which is all for the best.

Since using Google Reader, I was so happy to find out I could share interesting and inspiring articles from blogs and websites very easily on my sidebar. No signing up for facebook, or twitter, to share things with my readers. It was a great time-saver for me. The wonderful one-click "share" button was one of the features that was "axed" when the new Google Reader appeared, but there is a way to get it back!

Using the Google Chrome browser, go the the Chrome store and download this free feature:

I tried it out and indeed, the item I shared today has appeared in my "Shared Items" box on the sidebar. I am not sure how long this will last before "they" take my box away, but I hope it is a permanent solution.
