One of the first mistakes I made when I started blogging was not using social media. I was a total newbie to the blogging scene and really had no clue what I was doing. It took about 5 months before I ever started a Facebook Fan Page for my blog. Now, that’s one of the first things I do. Getting started with a Facebook Fan Page is pretty easy. First, make sure you have a Facebook account; that’s kind of crazy, right? I mean – who doesn’t have a Facebook account – besides my husband? Go to the “Create a Page” area on Facebook. Then choose “Public Figure” as the type of page; or whatever else you’d classify yourself as – I’m going with Public Figure for this example. Then choose your role (if you’re a blogger you could choose author or writer) and your Page Name Fill out some more info… and choose the URL to your Fan Page! This should be something easy to remember and related to your blog.
I know – how about your blog name?! Upload your picture/logo, click next and add your new Facebook Fan Page to your favorites so everyone can see it! Click “Next” and voila – you have just set up your own Facebook Fan Page. How easy was that?! Now is the fun part where you get to invite your friends to like your fan page… What you post on your Facebook Fan Page is your choice – but it is a reflection of you as a blogger and whatever other role you choose to carry on. We’ll go into more detail on how to increase your Facebook Fan Page Fan Count and other goodies later. Until then, play around and get to know your new Facebook Fan Page.Leave a link to your Facebook Fan Page and let us check it out and maybe even follow you!
