WordPress allows you to have complete control of your website or blog. The ability to schedule a post in WordPress is one of the most interesting features. You can schedule when one of your posts goes live on your website by specifying the year, day, and minute. This may not seem to be a severe problem initially, but it will help you make the most of your blogging time.
It takes time to run a blog or website, regardless of the type. If you’re a small business owner who uses a WordPress platform to promote your company online, a hobby blogger who loves writing about a particular aspect of their lives, or a new online marketer trying to make a few bucks, time is your enemy.
You’ll end up with an inconsistent blog if you sit down and write many posts and then publish them all at once. It would be best if you tried to post something at least once a day. You want to develop a loyal readership that will return to your site many times per week and will still find something interesting to read. You can do this by scheduling your posts to provide a constant stream of new content to your followers, even though you only have time to write in spurts.
How to Schedule WordPress Post:
To schedule your posts is pretty straightforward.
(1) At the top right of the Add New Post screen, you’ll see an Edit button next to the words “Publish Immediately.”
(2) Once you click that Edit button, you’ll see a few date fields where you can easily adjust the year, day, and time of day the post will publish.
(3) Keep in mind that the hour/minute is in 24-hour clock (08 is 8 am and 14 is 2 pm).
Depending on your target audience, you may want to have posts published in the morning, at night, or at midday. Play around with it a bit to find the sweet spot. If you’re heading out of town or on vacation, do many posts and schedule them out. This way, your blog readers get a steady stream of content, and it looks like you work on your blog every day.
