If you blog and are using WordPress, you can use the “post time stamp” and pre-write posts, and have them “publish” while you are enjoying a good nights rest.
At this time of year, my full time job keeps me extremely busy. It’s time for quarter and year end reports, W-2’s, and I am also preparing for filing our taxes.
Although I would rather be blogging, I must attend to my full time job, since it pays the bills.
With blogs, as we all know, posting frequently helps to get us crawled by the search engines.
Using the post time stamp is the perfect answer for that.
I take several hours, when I’m feeling creative, and write numerous posts.
After I have reviewed my posts, and checked for typos or poor grammar, I go to the right hand section of my “post page”, scroll down to “Post Timestamp”, and check the “Edit timestamp” button.
I then change the date, to a future date, and also change the time.
I usually change the time, to just past midnight.
I then click on “save and continue editing” and then click on “publish”.
You may not have to click on “save and continue editing”, however, I like to double check that I have changed everything correctly, before I click on “publish”.
Then……if you go to your “Dashboard”, under “Scheduled Entries”, you will see your post title and when it is scheduled to publish.
If you choose to edit your “scheduled entries”, you can click on the title, and edit them accordingly.
How sweet is that?
Do you use “post timestamp”
If you do not, do you have a question you would like answered?
If so, drop me a comment and I will attempt to answer your question.
