How to Schedule a Blog Post

We’re so glad you’re here! Today’s post is a tutorial for anyone who wants to learn how to schedule their blog posts.

When you schedule a blog post instead of publishing it immediately, you’re able to choose what date and time the post goes live! It will publish itself at the time you choose. This is a very helpful feature for keeping a blog schedule (if you’d like or need one), and can help you plan out future content.

Note: Make sure your blog is set to your time zone! If it’s under the default settings, your posts will be scheduled by that time zone. You can be customized under Settings > General. Select your time zone or a city that’s in the same region as you.
