Posting directly from Google Reader to Identi.ca

File this under Handy for Me.

I use Google Reader to manage to keep up with various news sites and blogs. It’s convenient and – being a web application – I can easily access it from anywhere.

Sometimes, I want to post news articles from Google Reader to Identi.ca. I could, of course, copy the link and paste it into whatever client I happen to be using, but there is a simpler way.

Within Google Reader, go to Settings > Send To and click on Create a custom link.

Then…
Name: Identi.ca
URL: http://identi.ca/?action=newnotice&status_textarea=${title}: ${short-url}
Icon URL: http://identi.ca/favicon.ico

Click Save and you’re done.

Go back to Google Reader and now you can send any post to Identi.ca by clicking on the posts Send to button.
