This might be the shortest Literary Blogging 101 post yet, haha! This is because there’s so little to say because “Scheduling Posts” explains itself, but I will break it all down for better clarity.
What do I mean?
Have you ever had free time on your hand and you didn’t know what to do with? Well, why not draft up a couple of posts to share on a later date for your blog? Okay, this depends on if you already have a list of what posts you’re releasing on your blog and when the posts are going to be shared.
I have a list I abide by and schedule I mostly stick to, because I know the content I regularly share on my blog which are:
- My Anticipated Releases (Per month)
- Book Reviews (Goal is to share 3 per month)
- Blog Tours
- Literary Blogging 101
- A Music Artist I Love
- Literary Discussions/Book Talks
- Literary Recommendations
- Guest Feature
From the above, I can now work ahead to create the posts one after the other, before the date I eventually publish them, my rule is to publish at least 2 posts a week.
Why should you schedule your posts?
- It’s great for consistency.
- If you’ve figured out the best time to reach your audience, and you’re available scheduling your post to go off at that time is a huge win.
- If you’re going to be away from your blog and have to share some posts.
- It gives you a lot more free time to do other things.
- It assists with being organised.
In my free time, I always write up a couple of posts, I have a lot of Book Reviews I haven’t shared and are saved up in my draft, and a couple of drafts that have been scheduled to be published on a later date, this is very important for when I’m going to be away or won’t remember, scheduling comes in very handy for my Blog Tours & Chain Discussions Posts, who usually have specific times to be shared.
Sometimes I’m so efficient at drafting up and scheduling posts, I’m all good to go for an entire month. I hope this post gives you the push you need to schedule that post ahead of time. Until the next post!
