Conversion Diary on Facebook

October 30, 2010 | 20 comments

I’ve been getting an increasing number of requests about Facebook. A lot of folks have told me it would be more convenient for them to follow my posts if they could do it via Facebook, since that’s what they use to keep track of the blogs they read. I mentioned this to my friend and personal social media guru, Martina, and she enlightened me to the concept of creating a page just for your blog. Great idea! I passed this along to my husband, who kindly put together one of these things for me. Anyway, long story short:

I exhort you to do whatever it is you Facebook-savvy people do with pages you enjoy (fan it? like it? friend it?). Right now it’s just a list of posts from the blog, but I may eventually figure out other stuff to put on there. Thanks!


  1. Your Husband

    Man, your husband must be awesome and cool.

    • Martina

      I would have to agree! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. MelanieB

    Wow. Never thought I’d see the day when I’d see your face on Facebook.

  3. Maureen

    I am so excited!!!

  4. Christine

    Watch how quickly you’ll get addicted & sadly wonder what life was before Facebook! Welcome & looking forward to reading your posts!

  5. Jaimie

    Don’t eat the Facebook crack.

    I just cannot figure out the page thing, I wanted to create a page for my blog and somehow it turned into a profile. Soooo confusing.

  7. Martina

    You crack me up. I guess I’ll work on world peace now. ::grin::

    How sad that people won’t just read your site from your site! It looks so much cooler and more unique than Facebook HERE… not to mention, more effort on the part of a reader often reflects more favorably on the author. It’s the balance between value and accessibility. If something of tremendous value is available everywhere we want it, it loses some of its value. When they start selling diamonds on street corners, they’ll no longer be “a girl’s best friend.” I hope you will always be “a girl’s best friend.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    I come and read from your site because I love your layout! But it will be fun to like your page on Facebook as well… maybe it will increase your fanbase, since everyone’s friends can see that we are liking your blog!

    Young Mom, I’ll help you – email me!

    Jen, did you see “The Social Network” movie? I was thinking of you, knowing what a tech geek you are. If you haven’t seen it, I think you’ll find it interesting on many different levels. My hubby and I watched it last night and I am still thinking about it. At any rate, I was okay with you just being on Blogger but I’ll be among those who will welcome you to Facebook. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Or “The Facebook” as it was almost called…)

      Roxane, I really enjoyed “The Social Network” and I’d love to talk to someone about it! My husband doesn’t really want to see it – he’s not that into Facebook and I guess it’s in some ways a pretty bleak movie. I reviewed it here and am inviting you to come chat in the comments!

    Haha! You “like” a page on Facebook. You “friend” a person. You used to “become a fan” of a page, but it was changed to “like.” Wow, you’re so 2000s. Get with the 2010s, LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love reading your blog because, if you aren’t making me think deep thoughts, you’re making me laugh. Since you “exhorted” I liked/fanned/friended you on Facebook. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Did you find a way to make your page update automatically? If you did, how? I tried to do that with Dickensblog but couldn’t manage it.

    Running in such a way with five fingers shoes speed for men ,lessens the possibility of being injured and improves the pleasure of the activity.
