Yes, you can. The articles and free audios on StevePavlina.com are not copyrighted. Feel free to share them with others. See the Uncopyright Notice for details.
Steve owns just one website, which is StevePavlina.com. He also helped to create ImaginaryMen.com for a team audio project he recorded. Any other websites you may find, including those that have his name in their URLs, aren't from him, and he has no involvement with them.
Steve has only written one book. It's called Personal Development for Smart People, and it's published by Hay House in hardcover, softcover, and ebook forms. This book is also being sold by other publishers in a variety of languages since Hay House is in charge of licensing translations for the book worldwide.
Any other books you may find under Steve's name on Amazon.com or from other booksellers aren't from him. In most cases Steve doesn't know who wrote or published those books. Most of those books are collections of different subsets of Steve's articles, which you can always read on StevePavlina.com for free.
Steve receives royalties from Hay House for his own book, but he doesn't receive any payment for other books people have published under his name.
In terms of social media, Steve has one YouTube account, and that's it. He doesn't have accounts with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or any other services. So if you see anyone posting under his name on those services, it isn't Steve, and it isn't someone authorized to post on his behalf.

Each year Steve receives hundreds of requests to promote various projects, causes, kickstarters, events, etc. The sheer volume makes it impractical to entertain such requests.
Please read How to Build a High-Traffic Web Site and How to Make Money From Your Blog. They're widely considered some of the best blogging articles online and contain plenty of practical advice. They're a bit dated now, but they'll get you off to a good start with the basics.
However, the most practical and realistic advice is to sign up with Site Build It! That is an easier and more reliable way to build a successful online business than blogging. Be sure to read Steve's Site Build It! review for details.
The only social media service that Steve currently uses is YouTube (for hosting videos).
Steve does not have accounts with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media services. If you see someone pretending to be him on such services, it's a fake account. Please report fake accounts to the services where you find them since impersonating a living person is illegal.
