There are many bloggers who underestimate the power of scheduling blog posts. While some bloggers rarely schedule blog posts, other bloggers are publishing as they write. There are only a few bloggers out of the millions of bloggers out there who schedule their blog posts. Scheduling blog posts has many benefits, and here are six of them:
- You have control over when your blog posts get published. We want as much control as we can get. Scheduling blog posts gives us the control we need to have. If you write a blog post at 5 am when many people are still sleeping, you can schedule the blog post to get published 4 hours later and then go back to bed.
- You can publish blog posts consistently and frequently. Publishing blog posts consistently and frequently is a crucial element of a successful blog. By scheduling blog posts, you will be able to be consistent while remaining frequent.
- You are less likely to burn out. When you are about to burn out, you do not have to write a blog post. Instead of writing that blog post and burning out, you will be able to take a break for the day. Taking a day off will not change the fact that you have several blog posts scheduled ahead of time. The more blog posts you have scheduled, the more space you have to take breaks to avoid burning out.
- Your writing will become better. That is not a lie. The main reason why certain blog posts are poorly constructed is because of the consistent time limit. If you are only writing 1 blog post every day and publishing 1 blog post every day, there are going to be some days where you may start writing at midnight. In order to keep the consistency, some bloggers have to write blog posts at midnight, and those blog posts are filled with typos and bad sentences. Having multiple blog posts scheduled will allow you to take breaks on these nights. In addition, more scheduled blog posts means you won’t have to worry about the time as much. You will be able to write longer, better blog posts and have time to proofread them. If you have numerous scheduled blog posts, then the urgency is gone. You now have time to write better blog posts.
- More days off. This one works like a double-edged sword. If you take some days off, then you will still have numerous scheduled blog posts. However, if you take too many days off, then you will run out of scheduled blog posts. When taking days off, be sure to take no more than 2 days off every week from writing blog post. Please note that the more days off you take, the more blog posts you have to make up when you are no longer taking days off.
- You can focus more of your time on bigger projects. If you are working on bigger projects such as writing a book or completing a training course, you can take a day off from writing blog posts so you have more time to work on the bigger projects. This allows you to invest more of your time into the bigger projects so you get them done in a faster amount of time.
Those are the six reasons why you should schedule more blog posts. What are your thoughts on the list? Do you have another reason for scheduling numerous blog posts? Please share your thoughts and advice below.
Once again, great stuff Marc. Who would’ve thought that one of my blogging mentors would be 16 years old? I think it ‘s cool.
