Facebook Page for the TJLGenes Blog

Awhile back I created a Facebook page for this blog, located at where I could share blog posts and other items of interest I've been working on.

I'd seen other Geneabloggers do this for the blogs as a way to share and also separate their personal feed from the genealogy work, so I decided to give it a try.  I invited my friends and relatives to check it out.

Not sure at this point where I'm going with this - I have stopped linking my blog posts to my personal facebook feed, but i'm not sure what affect if any having a Facebook page for the blog is driving any traffic.

If you have a blog, do you have a FB page for it?  Your comments and suggestions are welcomed.

A few months ago I created a page for my blog, too. (It's at I invited a few facebook friends to follow. Oh so slowly there has been an increase of followers but I'm not sure how many people actually click through to my blog to read posts. I often forget to add my blog posts to facebook, though. Like you, I also sometimes add posts by other bloggers and other items of interest, too. I'll be interested to read what others have to say in the comments on this post, Travis.

Thanks for commenting, Nancy. I, too, am not sure how many of the friends I've invited to my page actively click through. I guess my hope is that it's another way of getting the word out and putting my notes out there for those who are interested. I'll check out you page, too.
