Scheduling Posts

Many of you have figured this out by now, but I'm sure there are a handful of you out there who don't know that you can schedule a post to publish at a later date. Scheduling a post every now and then may prove to be very helpful to you.

To schedule a post:

1. Write your post.

2. Proofread it.

3. Click on Save Now.

4. Click on Post Options (located at the bottom of the 'edit post' page. Circled in blue below.)

5. Enter in the time and date that you would like your post published (circled in red above).

6. Click Publish Post.

7. Check that your post is set to be scheduled at the right time and date.

8. Your post will publish automatically at that date and time. Too cool!

You can also change the dates of old posts, too.

Happy Blogging! :)

Is there any way to schedule a post and make it recurring? For example, a daily/weekly/monthly giveaway or reminder.

Hi Penny! The only way I can think of how to do that would be to copy and paste the post into several individual posts, then schedule the posts to publish on future dates. :)

Hi Jill, Is there a way to schedule a post without it showing up in google reader for your followers to see?
