Blog Facebook Page {Tech Tuesday}

July 2, 2013

Most of us share our lives with the world wide web daily.  We share what we eat, where we vacation, and big milestones our children hit.  But, sometimes, it is nice to have some areas of social media that are reserved for our real life family and friends.  For me, that is my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  My tweets are not protected, but I can control who “follows” me.  However, my Instagram and Facebook accounts are pretty locked down and reserved for my family and friends.  I often have blog readers request to follow me on one or more social media outlets.  It is nice to have an easier means of communication and updates.

So, I created a Facebook page for my blog.

This makes it easier for my blog followers to stay informed and connected without all the TMI of my personal accounts.

How to Create Your Blog Facebook Page:

1.  I typed “create a page” in the help search bar.  Several things came up, but obviously I clicked on “How do I create a page?”

2.  Once you click to create a page, you will see several options to describe your page.  I chose “Cause or Community” because I consider my blog readers a community.

3. Once you click on “Cause or Community”, you will need to name your page and agree to the Facebook Pages Terms to get started.

4. Next, you will set up your page.  Add a description as you would like for it to appear on Facebook.  Also add your blog address as your website.  I opted to click “no” when asked if my blog was a real organization or event.  You can choose what you desire.  Save that info.

5.  Lastly, you will choose your Facebook page address (I chose the same as my blog.) and a profile and cover photo.  That’s it!  Start inviting your friends to follow you and let your blog readers know!

Enjoy connecting more with your blog readers and building relationships!  Building relationships is key in growing your blog and connecting with others.  Allow your readers to see what’s on your mind throughout the week.  Give them chances to ask questions or make suggestions for future posts.  Find guest bloggers for your blog.

Creating a blog Facebook page can open a whole new box of tricks as you try to find blog topics that interest your readers.

I’ve been pondering on this one for while and I still feel a little bit more pondering is necessary but I’m glad to know the process so that when I feel the time is right, I’ll be ready. Thanks, Megan.
