I have noticed recently that not everyone knows that it is possible to schedule the time when a post is published, rather than having to publish it immediately. It is a way to delay the publishing of a completed post until a time which suits you.

This is very useful if you are going to be away for a time, but want to make sure that your posts continue to be published regularly. Once you have set it up, then it will automatically be published at the time you have specified.

It is a particularly useful resource if you know that for a time you will not have any Wifi access.

We are always told that in order to maximise our Site Health, it is necessary to publish regular posts, and this method helps to ensure that. Of course, you will have to write the posts first!!!!

This is good. It doesn't work to well if your posts hang on fresh daily newsworthy content though.

Chrissie - Does this work on our websites only or can it be used to time post blogs on WA also?

This is so that I have accomplished my "stupid question for the day". :-)

You are so funny Steve, I love it!!!
It only works on Wordpress I'm afraid, but it would be great if we had something like that on our WA blogs too. That certainly isn't a stupid question!!!
Maybe an Ambassador could suggest that?!?!?
Many thanks for reading it Steve :)
