The Zen Habits Facebook App, and How to Promote Your Blog
If you're a Facebook member, I'm excited to share with you the new Zen Habits app, which allows you to have the latest Zen Habits posts and share your favorite ones with your Facebook friends.
If you enjoy reading my posts, I'd appreciate it if you could spread the word and share posts with your friends, if you think they'll like them.
I'm new to the Facebook game (just signed up recently — befriend me here), but apparently a bunch of Zen Habits readers are not. There's a Zen Habits group on Facebook that already has 690 members … some pretty cool people on there, with shared interests. I just joined myself.
For those of you who aren't aware, Facebook has 58 million active users. That's a lot of people! With 200,000 new users each day!
If you're a blogger like myself, you might be interested in reaching an audience like that. Glen of the LifeDev blog and the LifeRemix network has launched a new Facebook App Creator for Bloggers that makes this process easy. I'd recommend you give it a look (it's how I created the Zen Habits app).
The app creator will walk you through creating an app for your blog, and host your app for you, for a pretty low price ($5 per month for one blog) … if that worries you, you can try it out for free for one week.
It was recently featured on Tech Crunch, where they gave away some free Pro subscriptions. If you're interested, I might be able to haggle a few gift subscriptions for you guys.
Glen also did an interesting post on LifeRemix where he talked about how to use Facebook to make your blog posts go viral. And here's a video if you're interested in learning more.
