When to Publish?
If you think you haven't got my attention and included in my observasions, I'd like to welcome you to share how you manage and publish your posts in the comment area. Now, let me narrow this topic now. It's your blog and you decide how you gonna write your posts and when to publish. I have an advice? Not yet. But if you are not a person that publish your posts rightaway after writing, then I have something for you. Oops... You don't wanna leave peeps. If you are a person publish your posts right after writing, then you need to follow me and see how this gonna help you too ;)
Publishing Time Matters
Sometimes your posts need to be published when the time is ready as it has a time sensitive content or you need to think how to make use of your time effectively with blogging without being stuck with what you have been doing all the time. Can you come out of your old habits? For example, imagine you gonna celebrate the birthday of your puppy on next Sunday and organize a giveaway for your readers on the same day. So you need your post to be published on the exact date without any error. Would you count the dates, hours, minutes and seconds and be there when it's time to push the button? I know you are dedicated. But let's explore some more.
○ If you are a person who write a lot when you have more free time and publish posts rightaway, then how about spreading those posts throughout the week with intervals in between, instead of posting when you can and leave readers empty handed when you can't afford to write? I know, it's your choice. But think for a momento :)
○ If you are already following a schedule on your blog, then what if you can schedule your written posts to go out when the time is ready without waiting for the right time to push the button? Don't you feel you are taking more effort to publish than write your content? Just think.
Here's something I wanna share with you. As I write my blog posts in advance most of the time, I wanted to publish a specific post on a specific day. You can imagine how curious I would be. But when the time is ready, my Internet connection was acting weird and couldn't be online for few hours. I missed it, though I well planned and everything is ready to go. You need to think about risk assessment sometimes. Now take few moments to think about how you would react for such a situation. It's nothing to do with either you are a well organized blogger or it never happened before. My question is, what if it happens? Do you have a second plan?
You are Safe on Blogger
No matter what type of blogger you are and how you decide when to publish your posts. If you are on Blogger, you are safe as the Schedule feature is there for you :) Yeah, you can schedule your posts when it needs to get published and it will be posted automatically without waiting for you to be presented to push the Publish button. I was always looking at the clock and waiting to push the button and I didn't know how much time I'm wasting with the excitement of waiting for right moment. It may be alright for once or twice. But since I got to know about the capability of scheduling posts, it was taking care of publishing and I can say it's busy enough with scheduled posts right now. Even this post is on the schedule.
It doesn't matter if you are not on the Blogger platform. But think and research how you can make use of scheduling on your blogging platform too. That will save you and might redefine your blogging experience.
