I'm Now Importing my Entire Blog Into Facebook

I've not been very decisive about this topic, but something just put me over the edge, the new Facebook API. One of the reasons I didn't want to import every one of my entires into Facebook is because some of them are just really random and don't matter. However, with the new Facebook API and applications, the interface is already crazy beyond crazy.

It is not that I want to add to the madness, but I don't see the harm in having my blog in Facebook. I actually talk about interesting stuff sometimes.

The only problem that I see arising is the formatting and embedded objects I use from time to time. I've already noticed that it is a little funky on some of my older posts that were imported. At least the pictures are importing nicely. :)

To my friends on Facebook: if you find this annoying, first try and change your settings, secondly, if you ask nicely, I might turn it off again. :D

I'm still trying to work out how to do this. The fact that there's no search field on FaceBook's help system doesn't help. How'd you import yours?

I'm using the ATOM feed provided by blogger and using the Notes feature. Inside of the Facebook Notes feature, there is an option to import an external feed. Simply copy and paste and it should work.

While there are other applications that are starting to integrate blog support, I still think the Notes is the best because it is the widest used.
