Olly Writes

Woodwork, writing, walks, DIY and more!

‘Like’ This Blog on Facebook!

Hi all,

This is just a brief one to update you that I’ve started an Olly’s Workshop Blog page over on Facebook.

There’s still work to be done (mostly, photos to be added and updated) but, if those of you who use the social networking site would care to click the ‘Like’ button then, I’d greatly appreciate it. 🙂

I’ve also started a page for my website (OPJ Furniture) but, that’s literally all I’ve done; started it! 😛

I’m a bit dubious about inviting all my ‘real’ friends to ‘Like’ this at the moment but I welcome any comments, suggestions and feedback that those of you who know about wood may have. 😉

(As soon as I figure out how to do it, I’ll add a banner or button to this site for it as well – I think it just means enabling a Widget…)

Thank you all!

    Good work Olly,

    You can automagically publish links to WordPress posts on Facebook in a similar way to the Twitter settings and it lets you choose whether to post as yourself or “the page”

    Having extra/different content for the facebook page, particularly filling in the background for those that haven’t read your entire archive is a good idea which I might have to steal 🙂

      Hi John,

      How exactly do you do this?

      I’m sure I’ve connected my Twitter account to my Page (not my Facebook account) but I haven’t found an option to connect this blog with only a Facebook page, and not an account?

        Hi Olly,

        It’s in the WordPress “settings” menu under “sharing” – once you connect Facebook it can see that you have a “you” and a “page” and offers the choice of which to post as.

        I’ve found it forgets from time to time and things have posted on my wall instead of the pages, but I think that may have been related to my cookie settings and it’s better than nothing

        Thanks, John.

        Is Twitter the same? You can choose to link to either your profile or your page?

        Hi Olly,

        I don’t think Twitter has a concept of “page” vs “you” identities like Facebook does.

        You could always create another twitter identity if you wanted to separate “personal you” from “woodwork you” 🙂


I welcome your thoughts.
