This morning I just wanted to give a heads up about a most useful article over on Pro Blogger.

Stacey Roberts offers some convincing methods to make this whole blogging thing way easier. I'm all for making life easy, how 'bout you? If you've been blogging for awhile, then you know it can seem like there's not enough time to do everything that needs doing. Well, if you work smart you'll surprise yourself with what you accomplish.

Blogging Tips


Among the techniques Stacey outlines are "batching" (doing one type of task in bunches) and "automating" (setting up online tools to handle routine tasks).

Check out the article below and let me know if you have other productivity tips.

Blogging Tip Of The Day: Schedule Your Posts

computer,desk

Why should I schedule a blog post?

When you first start blogging it might sound like fun to just post something whenever the mood strikes - without any type of schedule.

Now, I'm all for for being spontaneous and I'm not saying a spur-of-the-moment post is always bad. For example, live-blogging an event can be a great way to attract interest in your blog and generate engagement with your readers.

However, I strongly suggest choosing one time of the day to update your blog. You can still post a quick update when you feel like it, but it's a good idea to have a regular schedule that your readers can count on.

For example, I like to schedule my posts here on Bloggerz Tips at 7:00 am (U. S. Eastern time). The reason I chose that time is because I feel like it's when many people are firing up their computers for the first time that day. People are hungry for fresh news and tips first thing in the morning and I want you guys to expect a new post everyday at 7:00 am.

Scheduling a post on Blogger is easy.


Note: Before you schedule a post, make sure your blog is set for the correct time zone. Set your time zone by clicking "Settings" and then "Language and Formatting" (see screenshot below).



How To Schedule A Post On Blogger

Step 1 - Click "Schedule" on the right column of your post editor screen.

Step 2 - Click "Set date and time" (see screenshot below).



Step 3 - Choose the date and time from the dropdown menu.

Step 4 - Click "Done".

That's all there is to it!
