How to Schedule Your WordPress Posts

There is a certain time in a day when each website gets the peak of their viewers. Now think if you are live in a different time zone than your readers, as you know web doesn’t have geographical boundaries, anyone from anywhere can access  it.. If so then it can be a problem. Imagine having your peak time as 3 a.m. how can you get up that time of a morning and publish your post.

The other situation is, if you are going for a vacation, but you don’t want to abandon your blog readers. How do you fix that problems?

That’s where the Scheduling posts can be very handy for this. WordPress has a really cool hidden feature that allows you to schedule your post.  This function allows you to stay ahead of yourself by finishing up articles in advance and have them ready. You can prepare for a busy week ahead of time and schedule articles to be published automatically.

Once you are done writing the post, before hitting publish you need to look at the option right above the publish button which reads “Publish immediately”. Follow the steps below and you can schedule posts in WordPress.


In the section appear change the date and time you need to publish the post automatically at. You can change the day, hour and minute which are the most important things that need to be changed in schedule. And also you can even change the month or the year. So you can write a post today to be published at the next year that will make you most surprising.

Consistent timing is what some users prefer. So if you habitually write a blog post at 8:00 a.m, so users can read it with their coffee in the morning around 9’O clock, then continue to do so because it will keep that user loyal to your website. If you decide to change times around, they might have to find another coffee read blog. Also sometimes users are eager to read your new post, so it gives them a time to expect new post.

Work Ahead and Schedule. Life is so much easy!!!
