Live hack. There are a lot of web sites and plug-ins that auto submit blog posts to your Twitter account. But what about Facebook?
In Facebook, the one and only application that seems to do it right is Social RSS (formerly RSS-Connect). In the settings, add your blog name and RSS feed, set your "Display Options" and in Newsfeed just grant access and set the feed to "Yes".
If you wish to do it through your Wordpress blog, test theWordbook plugin.
Wordbook plug-in allows you to cross-post your blog posts to your Facebook Wall. So Facebook “Boxes” tab will display your latest blog posts.
If you’re searching a plugin that does the opposite, taking facebook updates to our blog, consider the Facebook Posted Items plugin.

Live hack. Sometimes finding new ideas is difficult. When you can not create an article to write or the next chapter of your book. Thats called mind block. You have to help you mind twist. Here are 5 ways to keep you innovating.
Check out blogs similar to the content you offer. Have a look at the RSS feeds of your favourite blogs. Maybe get a new blog in a totally another field.
Get a few newspapers and magazines. Surf everything including ads and classifieds. Read the articles that are actually interesting.
Music is motivational and inspirational. If you do not think about something while you are listening to music, you may learn something within the lyrics.
4. Call a friend
Call someone you know very well. Ask them about troubles they've been facing, ask whtat's new near them.
5. Have a walk
Fresh air is a powerful thing. Breathe deeply outdoor. Nature will always give you way out.

Live hack. Probably the best way to ensure the search engines robots scan desired keywords of your blog is to use Section placing. This is a wonderful method. By only inserting a few lines of HTML code into your page, you'll be able to tell the crawler which regions of your web site are the most significant and ensure that you get ads crucial to content. Section Targeting lines are:
The rest of the page will not be neglected, but those peculiar lines will get a bigger weight. If you prefer to tell the crawlers to discount exceptional parts, you can use:
You can high spot (and de-emphasize) as many or as few parts as you want, but what you can’t do is practice these instructions entirely to highlight your keywords. So you can’t place them close to peculiar single words or phrases on your blog. In point of fact, Google recommends that you highlight a respectable percentage of text — as much as twenty percent — for the directing to be most effective. The effect of pointing small amounts of text could be irrelevant ads, public service ads... or even a banning if you purposely tried to bring up ads that have nothing in common with your blog.
Section Targeting is likely most useful if your blog covers lots of different themes. So if you had got a blog about Movie players but had published an article about comedies for instance, you could use Section Targeting to ensure that you did not miss ads about the movie players to ads about comedy movies. Or you can tell the crawlers to disregard your readers’ comments and concentrate on your own entries. And presumably, there’s nothing wrong with stuffing a paragraph with keywords associated to your subject and telling the robots to concentrate on that section to ensure that your ads stay aimed. It’s unquestionably something that you would like to play with. If there is one trouble with Section Targeting though, it’s that it can take up to fortnight before you see the effects — the time it can take for the
crawler to re-visit your blog. So it’s not a quick procedure. But it worth trying.
