Sharing an RSS Subscription Bundle

When you are done creating the bundle, you have the option to share it with four different methods: email it to friends, create a bundle clip for your website or blog, add a link to your website or blog, and an OPML file.

If you are planning to share bundle directly after making it, you can use the links provided; however, if sharing a bundle is an after thought, you will have to locate your bundles. I am going to show you the long way.

1. Open Google Reader, and click on the Browse for stuff link.
