Bend Blogs is Now On Facebook
So I've gone through the effort of creating a quick and dirty Bend Blogs fan page. My goal is to have it pulling the content from Bend Blogs, posting it into the wall of the Fan page, and potentially bring more traffic to the folks who list themselves on Bend Blogs. It's very much in its infant stages, but if you're wanting to become a fan, feel free
(primarily so I can get enough fans to get a username).
Any suggestions on how to fully utilize the page are welcome. Really, the Bend Blogs site needs a redesign to take better advantage of the various social networking opportunities I'm working on setting up. @bendblogs will be coming soon, @utterlyboring is already here, @jakeortman will never happen. I've come to realize that fewer and fewer folks are reading RSS feeds anymore, getting their content via Facebook and Twitter. Thankfully, there are many apps and services out there to automatically dump RSS feeds to both of these services, so while my original feelings about twitter haven't changed much, I obviously need to let people know when new content has been written to keep some sort of ad revenue coming in so I can pay for my server fees.
If you run a Web site, and want Bend Blogs content on your own site, I do have banners and widgets for that, and remember there is a mobile version as well.
If you're wondering why I suddenly am getting into this more, it's because I'm working on setting up and customizing Discover Sunriver's Facebook and Twitter profiles and pages, so I'm also using my various experiments to figure out how to do things properly before I implement them on the Discover Sunriver pages.
Update an Hour Later: Woohoo! We have the required 25 fans for a username! You can now find Bend Blogs on Facebook at facebook.com/bendblogs
