Aha! Eureka! Blog-it now, post it later!

So, I'm probably the only one who just figured this out, but did you know you can schedule your posts? *GASP*!!!

That's right! You can write a blog post in advance of when you want it to appear on your blog and automatically schedule the date and time you want it to show up! I am so excited about this that I've already written three posts, not including this one, and scheduled them to release later this week! Maybe I'm just suffering from extreme lack of sleep, or maybe this is just the fact that I'm easily excited about simple things, but this knowledge has pretty much changed my life!

Up to now, I have only written blog posts intermittently because of a pressing schedule and a busy life with small children at home. With D starting preschool, I thought I'd have more time for blogging, but, as it turns out, I'm not that great at time management. I want to make the most of the time I have, whenever I happen to have it.

Aside from writing the posts in a word processing program and saving it for later, I couldn't think of a way to pre-write posts. I tried the pre-writing thing and I ended up losing the files or accidentally deleting them. With the blog scheduler, I can write more posts when I'm in the mood and that means more for everyone to read! Whether or not you like it, well that's up to you! But for me, this is like a breath of fresh air! It's like someone just opened a window when the house is hot and stuffy. Yay! Just for fun, I will schedule this post for later today.

If you don't schedule your posts yet, you should try it out and see if it takes a load off... it did for me! Now my blog is back to what it was supposed to be - an outlet for my emotions, thoughts and creativity. Woot!


  1. Yes, scheduling posts is a great thing. Too bad I never have my act together enough to write in advance, so I never use this clever little gadget.

  2. It's a favorite feature of mine as well, it's come in handy a few times :)
