Sync your blog with your Facebook Page with Networked Blogs

Picture 10

Winter has arrived in the Sierra Foothills and being snowed/iced-in at my place has fostered a wonderful sense of stillness.  Between winter-wonderland walks, I have been working on my new music album and this valuable blog post on how to sync your blog with your Facebook Page.

Networked Blogs is an application developed for Facebook that pulls your RSS Feed from your blog on a regular basis, then posts a thumbnail image (if you’ve included one in your post) and an excerpt from your blog onto your Facebook Page Wall for all of your fans to see in their News Feed.  With this application, you can also follow other blogs on Facebook and invite people to follow yours.  It’s a great way to share your content with your Facebook fans and to drive traffic back to your website/blog.

Embed your YouTube Channel

Picture 12Embedding your YouTube Channel on your WordPress page or post is easy if you know how to do it.  Let me save you the time it takes to figure it out by giving you these simple steps:

Modify this code: <script src=”;up_channel=YourChannelName&amp;synd=open&amp;w=320&amp;h=390&amp;title=&amp;border=%23ffffff%7C3px%2C1px+solid+%23999999&amp;output=js”></script>

and place the code with your Channel Name inside of it into the HTML editor of your WordPress page or post editor.

That’s it! Easy! All of the colors you set up in your Channel from within YouTube will show.

You can also grab the embed code from your channel page to alter width and height. Make sure you are logged in. See this page:

Twitter has a new widget

Twitter recently updated their widgets so you can customize the colors to match your site.  To get the code for your Twitter widget, log into, go to “Settings” and underneath the “More Info URL” field, click on the link that says, “You can also add Twitter to your site here.”  From there, you can choose if you want a widget for your website, Facebook, or MySpace and what colors you would like to use in your widget.

Have fun with it!
