A scheduled post is one that you set up to automatically publish at a specific date and time. Its convenient to have a pre-written post that you schedule so that you can take care of other bloggy things. But like most things in life, having the time to write and post let alone one that you can schedule is hard. I do alot of nap time and bed time blogging and try to have my posts ready for the week.
Its fairly simple to schedule a post. Look to the left on your compose screen and find the setting that says ‘Schedule’. Once you click on it there are two options:
Automatic – Your post will show up as soon as you press publish
Set date and time – You choose when your post will publish
Once you click the ‘Set date and time’ tab you will see a calendar and a time table. You can choose your own time and day to have your post publish. Just be aware of timezone differences. I am in the Central timezone, so when I schedule my posts for 4:30 PM they wont appear until 630PM my time.
Click ‘Done’ and go on with your bloggy business. Just another simple blogger tutorial that will make your life easier.
