I love that so many things can be set up in advance with technology – birthday reminders, Twitter and Facebook alerts,Â IFTTT recipes, and Blog posts.
So last week when I disappeared, buried in errands and driving and vet visits, where was my blog post?
I didn’t have one pre-scheduled!
Much like the saying “the shoemakers kids go shoe-less,” I was focused on building courses, and caring for a million details and Thursday came and went with no post.
I WordPress I normally have 2 or 3 in the hopper. I also usually have a couple of more advanced articles in Dropbox that I work on when inspiration hits. Last week? Nothin’.
So this week – a make-up session.
How to preschedule a post (or 6) using WordPress. Â Just let me go open my Snipping Tool.
Here we go… I am logged in to the admin panel of WordPress and have clicked on Posts > Add New
Once I enter my information – and before I hit Publish I stop and set the date that the Post should appear.
The Publish button changes to Schedule and I can continue editing and saving as normal.
Repeat until stress reduces 🙂
Bonus – Jetpack does not share the post until it publishes either.
