Have you ever tried posting to your blog on a schedule, but you suddenly realize that you have a time conflict on the day you are supposed to post?
Most of us "hear" that we can schedule posts, but only some people know how to schedule a blog post to publish later--not now.
If you know how to do this, you don't need to keep reading.
If you don't care about how to do this, you don't need to keep reading.
However, if you don't know but wish you did, HERE are the instructions for posting to your WordPress, Blogger, or Tumbr blogs.
To Schedule a Blog Post on WordPress
(WordPress.com or the more common WordPress install within your hosting service):
|WordPress "Add New Post" Screen: Notice "Publish immediately" in the right hand column.|
On the right side column, notice the area where it says, "Publish."
The default is to "Publish immediately," but you don't want that. So YOU click "Edit."
|A closer view: Click "Edit" beside "Publish Immediately"|
Once you click "Edit," you will see the screen below here:
|Change the Date/Time, and Click "OK."|
Once you are in the "Edit" mode, you can change the date and the time to WHEN IN THE FUTURE you want to publish to your WordPress blog.
To Schedule a Blog Post on Blogger
|Blogger: the "New Post" screen; See "Schedule" on the right hand column.|
|A Closer View: Click on "Schedule"|
After you click "Schedule," then you need to select "Set date and time."
|To schedule a post in Blogger, click "Set data and time"|
After you choose the option to "Set date and time," that area will expand to show a time box and a calendar.
|Blogger: Once you "Select date and time," you will see this area expand.|
Select WHEN IN THE FUTURE you want to publish to your Blogger blog. Once you choose your date and time, click the "Done" button.
To Schedule a Blog Post on Tumblr
|See "publish now" on the right hand column.|
In the right hand column of your screen, notice "publish now" with a dropdown arrow next to it.
Click this dropdown arrow.
|Select "publish on..."|
|Tumblr: Add Publish Day/Time|
Afterwards, click outside the box, and the date/time registers.
