As all of you regular readers (thanks, btw!) know, I like to write quite often about technical tools, gadgets and websites that can help make our lives and businesses easier.
The latest one I’m enamored of is Networked Blogs. Introduced to me by Mary Melinski, Networked Blogs is a Facebook application widget that imports your RSS feed onto your Facebook personal profile or business Fan page. Not only can people read your latest blog post, they can use Facebook as an alternate RSS feed, and be updated every time you publish a new post. I love it, because a. it saves me work, and b. it’s introducing my blog to a new audience.
I have created two screencasts to show you how to use this tool for yourself.
Thanks for this Rebecca. It got me going to set it up for my own blog.

That’s a challenge for us, all, John! Having your blog on there will definitely help, though. Fresh content!! Yay!
Just trying out this app on my Facebook Fanpage! Found out about courtesy of you at the recent Alliance for Arts Social Media Workshop that you presented. Thanks so much for passing this one along Rebecca!
Hi Rebecca, I went to Registered Blogs from my Facebook page, but there is no button that says “Register a new blog.” Might it be hiding somewhere? Help?!?
I think you need to add the application to your Facebook, first. Try this: http://www.facebook.com/apps/directory.php#/apps/application.php?id=9953271133&ref=appd
That is a great idea, the best way to increase your business is to get your name out there somehow. The internet is the best way to do that.

This was so wonderful! I can’t believe I was able to follow along with your video step by step and do this! Thank you so much!
As Barbara said, the “register” button isn’t there, but I searched around and it eventually asked me if I wanted to add my blog. From there it was a piece of cake (a piece of cake I would never have been able to figure out on my own!). Again, thanks!
