How To Schedule Your Posts On WordPress For More View And Follows Part 1

I have been meaning to do this post for quite a while now because I had a couple of requests on my comments section asking me for it. So sorry it took forever and here it is- hope it helps.

I thought I would write the first part of this blog on how to actually schedule your post. WordPress can be a little tricky sometimes to get the hang of and I thought I would share this post first to help new bloggers learn how they can schedule their posts. The next post will be about the benefits of scheduling your post as well as how to schedule the perfect times for your post to get more views and follows.

  1. Once you are done writing your post on your dashboard go to the right side of the screen where it says “publish” and select the “edit” button.

2. Next pick the time and date you would like the post to be published.

3. After picking the time and date click the “OK” button.

4. After clicking ‘OK’ you will notice that blue button that usually says ‘Publish’ will have changed to ‘Schedule’. Click on the ‘Schedule’ button and this will complete the process of scheduling your post.

    It’s great when it works like it is supposed to. However, I have found that in only works about 70% of the time. Not sure if you have noticed or not, but there are times where it doesn’t post when it is supposed to and you actually have to go to the scheduled post to get WordPress to trigger the scheduled post. Kind of frustrating when you know it should have posted and you’re waiting for the post notification and it never comes.

    I calculated that I need to schedule 43 blog posts in advance for next year to stay as active as I am now. So far my blog posts have been scattered and on a whim, but I do use the schedule in advance feature to schedule my times. Because I’m a night owl, I often write posts at 11pm but my optimum time is during the day (between 11am And 1pm) so I usually end up scheduling it for the next day!
