I don't take the fact that others follow this blog for granted, and am instead sincerely thankful for those that do visit, follow, and comment. I have been making an effort recently to be a bit more consistent in my production after "sababatical gigante!"
Those who visit the blog homepage will notice a new gadget in the right column containing items from my Google Reader that I mark as share. I will try to share stories that i think are interesting but that I don't have the time, intelligence, or further comment required to turn the item into a blog post. For those of you that subscribe to the "other WSJ" via reader, you may be interested to know that you can also subscribe to these new shared items. Also, my understanding is that comments can be left within the shared items, so this will give us another forum for discussion.
Give it a try and let me know what you think, and let me know if you have any further suggestions.
