One way to get visitors to your blog is to get your blog posts in front of an audience that might want to read them.
And one place that your audience might just be hanging out is on Facebook.
If you have a Facebook profile, there's a neat application that you can add to dynamically display your blog posts on your profile.
First of all get an RSS feed set up for your blog. A good place to do this if you haven't already done so is at www.feedburner.com.
This will give you an RSS feed URL for your blog.
Then, log into Facebook and go to the Blog RSS Feed Reader application and add it to your profile.
In the configuration, add the details of your RSS feed url (For example, mine is: http://feeds.feedburner.com/davidnorris), and configure how you want the feed to appear on your profile.
Then, every time you add a blog post it will appear on your mini-feed. It takes your blog to your audience rather than asking your audience to come to you.
Checking my Google Analytics account, I can see I'm now regularly getting referrals from Facebook as a result. Nice.
