Sitting at the computer and your thought process has deserted you? Totally deserted you? I often see posts by bloggers who write that they are feeling the pressure of writing to a deadline, simply to post something for the day. But Blogger has a feature that is going to make your life a lot easier.
You can write a post in advance and just use a simple option to pre-set it to post at any time, on any day. Yep, that's right. It'll post automatically.
Just go to Blogger's Scheduled Posts, where you can read the details and see the simple graphic pointer. Going to Draft Blogger will take you through your normal steps, through logging in and through the dashboard.
Write your post and when you click on Post Options, simply set the date and time that you want it to publish. You'll then get this message (see below) confirming that your post will be published at the date and time you have chosen.
Voila! It's so simple. But every time you want to pre-schedule a post, you need to go to Draft Blogger instead of Blogger.
(And if you accidentally publish a post instead of pre-scheduling it, simply use the Save As Draft option to remove it from your blog and place it back on your dashboard, to be published later.)
