The question is” How to make your blog more visible in the net ?” One of the first steps I made to promote my blog was to publish my posts at facebook and myspace. There are many different ways to do this but only a view of this possibilities are really satisfactory.
The basic condition for publishing your blog is to have a RSS feed or a ATOM feed on the blog.
You can find a couple Facebookapplications that imports RSS feeds to Facebook. For example RSS-connect, Simply RSS and Blog RSS Feed Reader. I tried all this readers but with all I had the same problem. With every application you get feeds from more than one blog but I only could publish this feeds in a box or a new tab on my profile. Looking like this :
This is a good way if you have many other blogs which you want to promote on your facebook page.
For me it was important to have my blogentries on the wall like all my other facebook comments. And additional I wanted to have my blogposts published with a headline and a teaser. So I found a simple way to do it. Go to the note app of facebook and than to my notes. On the right side you will find the point
“Notes Settings” like here
Subscribe to your blog. And the blogposts will be published on your wall like this :
That´s it for facebook ..
Publishing your blog on myspace is not as easy as on facebook. On myspace there is no application to get your rss feed from your blog. So we have use a tricky way over a provider named Widgetbox.com.First you need to setup an account for yourself.
After login in go to “make a widget”
Next page choose “blog/feed” and enter the url of your feed. Customize your widget. Save your widget.
After saving go to “My Widgetbox”–>”developed widgets”. You should see your widget now. Edit your widget. On the edit page go to “how other see it” and press “get widget”
left beside “copy” press “myspace” and copy the code. Open your myspace account and go to “edit profile”.
Paste the code into your “about page”. If you want to see how it looks like got to my myspace page
