This week's topic...
The Magic of Scheduling Blog Posts!
I have to sadly admit that I used to be someone who was unable to see the magic of scheduling blog posts.
I actually rarely used to click that "schedule" button at all. What times did I actually click it?
- during the A-Z challenge where I need to write a post the day before.
- when I was tired and knew that I wouldn't get to write a post the next day.
It is! I mean... it was. I seriously don't know how I did it. But I guess it's okay once in a while... especially if you're not caught up with writing your posts and haven't posted in a few days and write the review and then just post it automatically.
But I find that it's so much better and easier to just write your posts beforehand! Actually, I'm sitting here, writing this post almost a week and a half earlier than it's scheduled to go on. I write it, and then there's one less thing or idea to worry about.
For me, the best time to go all out and write my posts is when I get the idea/finish reading the book, or whenever I have a bunch of time.
Scheduling blog posts earlier gives me so much time for later, time that I can spend reading, commenting on other people's blogs, or doing something other than rushing and writing a post for that very day or the coming day. And when I go all out and write posts in advance... I feel like I really deserve that pat on the back. ^_^
And another thing coming back from my old noob blogger days? I used to write posts/reviews, and post them automatically, one after the other. *face palms self* I was really dumb. How are people supposed to see the reviews that were under that one main post? It's basically impossible because people usually go onto the blog to see the first main post.
I guess I can say I learned a lot in my present blogger days... Calendars, lists, scheduling posts... they're all handy-dandy tools that certainly help me out 24/7. Blogging is not a job, but it's absolutely a commitment that we chose to take when we signed up for this wonderful glorious pleasure of ours... right?
Do you enjoy scheduling posts in advance?
How far do you usually schedule and write your posts to?
