Is your blog post seen, being read, and getting lots of comments the moment you click that Publish button?
For some of us, may be so, but for most of the bloggers, the work is just beginning.
You need to share, share, share with as many communities as you can out there, to get more people to notice your blog. If they like what you have to say, they will become regular readers and commenters.
Let’s see what we can do about sharing our blogs on Facebook, one of the biggest social media platforms where bloggers hang out.
Share your blog on Facebook
Must do #1 Add a Facebook share button to your blog
People need to see that button to be reminded to share and to know that it’s OK to share. Make sure the button is visible on the page.
Most likely you have a sharing plugin installed with all major social media buttons. If you don’t, one that works well is Social Sharing Toolkit.
Must do #2 Share on your Facebook page
Share your blog on your Facebook page once you published it. You can share automatically using a scheduling tool from your blog, or using NetworkedBlogs if you added your blog there.
However, also share a few times manually from the blog to Facebook. This allows you to add your own message, as a personal touch, for better engagement.
Let’s connect on Facebook, BTW. I am BlogFormatting, leave me a message and I’ll make sure to pay you a visit too!
Must do #3 Test, test, test
Test to see how your sharing button works. Do this from time to time, because plugins change and may start to behave differently than expected.
Always good to know that you are in the best possible shape for your fans to share your awesome blog!
Are you on Facebook and how are you growing your blog there? Please leave me a comment and share this post so others can benefit. Have a great blog!
