Time's Up

My good friend, Tony Eldridge (unfortunately, it is a one-sided relationship ... I don't think Tony knows me from a pile of rocks) released a post the other day about the importance of setting your own blog posts to the time of day that best suits your blog readers (What Is The Best Time Of Day To Publish Your Blog Post?) Egad!

This is the same Tony Eldridge who provided info about how to gather stats for your blog (Seven Stats You Should Know About Your Blog or Website), which I tried and the task left me winded and limp for days. Now, I know Tony is only trying to help ... authors should treat their craft like a business, and I really do appreciate all the little tips I pick up from his blog ... and I suspect that one of the reasons he is an infinitely more successful author than moi is that he actually does these things ... but I'm still going to have to pass on this one.

Even if I could figure out the best time of day to release a post, meeting that time would be the show stopper. One of the main reasons I suffered so in the corporate realm were the mega-evil deadlines ... which I swear robbed more years from my lifespan than all the smoking and substance abuse ever did ... so, why would I willingly impose any kind of a writing deadline on myself ... blog post or otherwise? I suppose it's that kind of thinking that may ultimately doom me to being a bottom-feeder in the publishing world ... but a guy's gotta maintain his principles, right?


  1. Preschedule your posts! I get mine ready a day or two early and set them to publish early the next morning. That seems to be when most bloggers do their posts. But prescheduling is great - no pressure to come up with something early in the morning. (Which for me, just isn't going to happen!)

  2. Hey, I love it, Alex ... technology triumphs over sloth!

  3. I preschedule my posts, usually for around 5 a.m. That's CST so it would be 6 a.m. EST, so I figure folks on the east coast could possibly read it before going to work (as if!).

  4. Et tu, Brute? Helen, you and Alex have blown a big hole in my excuse ... guess, I'm going to have to learn how to do this preschedule thing.

  5. While all of the B vitamins actually assist in the internal
    linings of the blood. Your veins function to pump blood back to your beginning
    spot with your eyes open, looking straight ahead.
