Integrating Facebook and blogs

I finally reconnected my blog with my Facebook account. I had done this a couple of years ago, but decided the two formats didn’t mix particularly well: Facebook is really a micro-blogging format, while I write long blog posts. But what the hell — it doesn’t cost me anything to put my blog’s RSS feed on Facebook, and someone might actually read it once in a blue moon.

But who really cares about my personal blog. I’m going to try to get my church to put together a good RSS feed from the church Web site, so I can place that on the church’s Facebook page.

Later note — This post was supposed to carry a link to a related article on Peter Bowden’s blog: Here’s the link.

Update, 2021: Gosh, how the world has changed since 2010. Now people don’t have self-hosted blogs, they just post directly to Big-Tech-owned social media. And blogs that are predominantly text? — so very 2010.

    I use Facebook as a blog and article aggregator, so I’m happy to see folks linking their blogs to FB.
    I will soon link my blog to FB.

    Will @ 1 — I don’t write Facebooky posts either, and I’ll be curious to see what happens with my posts.

    Carol @ 2 — You write: “I use Facebook as a blog and article aggregator”

    So maybe this is a good direction….
