My Current Sharebro Solution

I'm currently trying to figure out a good workflow to share articles since Google Reader share (well publicized on 10/31) and Reeder share (as of 11/8) have both been discontinued.

On a side note, when/if HiveMined comes out, I'm hoping it has the old Google Reader share/follow functions, and a "Note in Reader"-type bookmarklet. So this all may change soon!

The best way to see my archive at the moment is via Tumblr or Twitter, either directly thru those services or via these RSS feeds:
         http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/maddentw.rss
         http://timwmadden.tumblr.com/rss

They are both being fed via Instapaper Likes. Instapaper has a single-click bookmarklet to save any web page from your browser. I also use a ifttt task to pump my Google Reader starred items to Instapaper for reading later.

Instapaper also has a single click like/star function. Then you can optionally set up your account to automatically post your likes to Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr and/or save to Pinboard/Evernote.

By the way, any Twitter or Tumblr user can be followed via RSS with the structure below. Just replace [user] with the actual Twitter handle or Tumblr user you want to follow. It's not real-time but if you want it aggregated in an RSS reader, it works well.
          http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/[user].rss
          http://[user].tumblr.com/rss
