How to create a Facebook Fan Page for your Blog
Sometimes referred to as a "Fan Page," a Facebook page is a single page where you can share & talk about any particular subject you want: a celebrity, a blog or whatever your heart desires. Think of it as a one-page meeting place, with information, links, a message forum box, RSS and anything else you want.

Use RSS Graffiti Application to share your most recent blog posts
If you want to automatically add your blog posts to Facebook, then use the RSS Graffiti Application.
For example, if your blog is http://yourblog.blogspot.com, then your feed URL will be http://yourblog.blogspot.com/rss.xml
Click the link which says "click here to fetch and preview" and see if its grabbing your blog feed. (if it's not grabbing your feed, then check if you have enabled the blog feeds. If your blog is not hosted on blogger, then your feed url will be different.)
You don't need to worry if your posts don't appear immediately on your Facebook Fan Page Wall, there might be some delay in the wall getting updated, as RSS Graffiti checks the feed for new entries at regular time intervals.
