Why bother adding shared items to Google Reader?

I am having a great time using the share feature in Google Reader. I "share" the articles that I find interesting and then I copy the code into the bottom of my blog so other people can follow what I've shared. It also allows me to update the content without having to go to two different places.

Your shared items are available publicly at this web page. You can choose people to share with in Sharing settings.

Other things you can do with your shared items:
Email the link to your friends.
Add a clip to your web site or blog.
