Should I Schedule My Blog to Post Automatically?
Not long ago, I created a blog post to address this issue, and I think the information is worth re-posting. Since I’ve been automating my own posts, I have so much more time for writing and working on marketing my books. For instance, I’ve released another publication since I first wrote the initial article dealing with the benefit of automatic posts. I released a title called: One Bad Deed …Leads to Another available exclusively as an Amazon Kindle short read right now. Thanks to the following views about scheduling posts, I had the time to write and publish something else so quickly, yet still blog.
Nowadays, everyone has a blog or has at least made an attempt to try and start one. Most of the time, new bloggers fall by the wayside, which is evident by the countless abandoned blog sites. Commercial blogs, personal blogs, fan blogs, writing and author blogs; you name it, and somebody somewhere is blogging about it. Even avid readers who have a whole list of authors and books that they favor, tend to create blogs to discuss their favorite stories, characters and scenes. Some of the best ideas for blogs have both started and ended in the bat of an eye, simply because writing regular blog posts became too time-consuming.
If you have a blog, have you ever considered the question of how to make automatic blog posts? If you’re a new or inexperienced blogger, you may not even realize you have this option. In fact, some veteran writers who have been blogging for some time either don’t know about, or don’t use this option. This is unfortunate too, because if more bloggers did start putting their blogs on automatic pilot, the success rate of more blogs would be higher.
The frequency of your blog and blog posting is up to you. You can decide to have a weekly blog, which is probably the most common type that people choose, or you can courageously aspire to write a daily blog. This takes courage to me, because once you indicate that your posts will be made on a daily basis, you publicly obligate yourself to fulfilling that commitment. I have personally done this on more than one occasion, and later felt like I had bitten off more than I could chew. I found that there is a lot of stress and anxiety attached to trying to meet a daily writing deadline. This is especially true when a lot of other things are going on in your life.
Do some or all of the following statements describe you when it comes to your blogging habits?
You always get great ideas for blog themes.
You get off to a good start when you first launch a blog.
You even post to it regularly for a few weeks.
You feel like you spend forever working on your blog.
You become less active in your other online and offline pursuits
You try and make posts consistently but you feel like no one is listening
You start to check your blog stats too often and they’re still too low
You start to discouraged,
You start posting less and less
You gradually stop because you don’t see the point
Helpful Automated Posts
You won’t believe how helpful automated posting can be. The reason the statement in the first paragraph is true is because, a blogger can provide better quality blog posts with auto posting, without the pressure of having to write every single day. You can always meet your blog posting deadline because the posts are pre-published and simply scheduled to be released on the date that you setup.
I personally found the Blogger (Blogspot) and the WordPress blog platforms to be very user-friendly, regarding auto scheduling. I have no doubt that most people will have no trouble setting up their posts. However, if anyone would like some personal assistance in locating where and how to schedule their blog posts, feel free to drop me a line.
