How to Schedule A Post In Blogger

As bloggers we all know we can't be everywhere at once. We have lives outside of the computer screen. We have kids that require our attention. Jobs that we need to focus on. Husbands that we need to spend time with. That's why being able to schedule posts to publish automatically is so important.

For SEO purposes, timing is everything. Publishing posts at the same time is great for Alexa ranking and Google Page Rank. It also allows your readers to become familiar with your posting schedule and will give them something to look forward to.

By scheduling your posts, you can unchain yourself from your computer and spend more time focusing on  life outside the computer screen. Here are a few quick steps that will have you scheduling your posts in no time:

1. Click on new post and write your new post

2.Click the schedule button on the right hand side of the post settings sidebar and choose the time and date option and choose the time you would like your post to go live. Hit the done button when finished.

3. Once you hit done, click on the publish button as you typically would. Don't worry, hitting the publish button will not publish the post, it is just the final step to schedule your post.

Now, sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor and your new found freedom.

Do you have any tips yourself that you think new bloggers could use? Feel free to link them up in the comment section below or send me the link to and I'll feature it on my blog.

Until next time,


  1. I can't believe I never thought to actually click the publish button before, LOL!! I am smart person I SWEAR!!!! Thanks for helping me out!

    1. You're totally welcome! I was doing the same thing, so you're not alone ;)

  2. To do this does the computer need to be online and logged onto blogger or can i be logged of and away at the time I want it publishing ??

  3. Schedule option on blogger can be used to send back any fresh post. Sometimes, we don't want to see a month old post on home page, by adding a year before date it can be shifted. Good post indeed.

  4. I'm so glad I read this post. Sometimes we get so caught up in our work that we forget to look for simple ways to lighten our load. For every email that I open, I have ten new things I need to do. You know how it is! Your scheduling idea has literally taken off about 2 days worth of work off my shoulders. This is something one can definitely use on all digital platforms. ;)
    Thanks for the post.
