Facebook linking to websites and blogger

I am struggling with the idea of linking to my facebook account from a website or blog. NPR does it directly -, but I can't seem to find a similar url on my facebook account.

The answer -

Those links are what Facebook likes to call "Badges." Go to your profile. Scroll all the way to the bottom. On the lower left hand column you should see a link that says "Create Profile Badge." Click that. From there you can edit a Badge to show the info you'd like. At the end, it will give you some html code that you can copy and paste into another website or blog. When people click on your Badge, they will get sent directly to your Facebook info box.

The answer comes from yahoo.
