Have I invented a time machine?
Nope! I’m just taking advantage of WordPress’s Scheduling feature, and I’m really loving it.
If you’re like me, you like writing blog articles. But you don’t always have ideas all the time. I keep a little note pad with ideas for future articles. But I don’t always feel like writing, and the bloggers out there say you should blog on a regular basis, like once a week, etc. The scheduling feature of WordPress comes to the rescue!
My personal goal is to write a new article once a week. This is not to overly annoy all those folks who are reading this via email subscription. But sometimes I either don’t have time, or don’t feel passionate about any one topic to write – so there’s a lag. Or other times I find several topics and then want to write about them immediately. Both of these situations conflict with my once-a-week goal.
I now continue to write ideas down on a list, but I write articles whenever I am in the mood. And I use the scheduling feature to publish them in the future. This helps distribute the articles over an even timeframe, instead of being too lumpy. It lets me build up a nice queue of already written articles, and then I’m free to write whenever I want to.
So if you find yourself in a similar situation, give WordPress’s scheduling feature a try. Takes the lumps out of your blog posting schedule ðŸ™‚Jill
