D is for Doing it Ahead of Time - Schedual Your Blog Posts

Hello dear readers and fellow A-Z participants. It's day four of the blogging challenge and I'm continuing my blogging tips by talking about how to schedule your posts. I know it's a bit of a stretch for the letter theme, but I couldn't fit this topic in anywhere else.

I've taught a couple of social media classes before and been surprised at how many people are unaware that you can schedule your blog posts ahead of time. It's great because you write it, then it posts consistently. In my experience, this consistency has given me more comments.

I actually wrote this post on March 5th. I'm getting ready to pitch my book at a writers conference in two weeks so I don't have time to write posts right now. See how nice that is?

So, How do you schedule posts? It's simple - when you draft in the right sidebar, you select Schedule, pick your date and time then click done.

Now your post is ready to go, and you don't have to freak out by trying to write posts the day of. Easy peasy and stress free. Have fun posting!
