Post a link on Facebook to my Blog

I want to post a link on Facebook to my blog.  When I do this the link on FB points back to my homepage and not my blog.  I then posted the link I copied into a blank webpage and it works fine, took me directly to the Blog I wanted.  I tried contacting FB but have not gotten an answer.  It is a bit hard to tell people that after they click on the link they have to click on Blog then select the topic and finally scan down to the blog in question; people loose interest before they will do that.  Help please.

Re: Post a link on Facebook to my Blog

It's Facebook's problem. They convert the last two slashes to some other characters. It works correctly with Google+.

 

A workaround is to copy your blog URL (don't include the ending gibberish):

   http://home.comcast.net/~username/site/?/blog/

 

Go to http://tinyurl.com/ and paste the blog URL and create a customized URL perhaps with your username followed by blog. Copy and paste that into Facebook. When I did that, Facebook gave me a CAPTCHA to decipher. But then the link was clean and directly to my blog. 

 

My Facebook friends who are up now are probably wondering why I posted that over and over. But I deleted all the posts.
