Here’s a quick how-to post detailing how to schedule a post in Blogger. Essential knowledge for regular bloggers, those that host blog tours, or if you’re going to be away from the computer for a few days. It means you can simply set up your post, then forget about it until it goes live. (Please note: Occasionally, Blogger will miss schedule with a post, so please keep an eye out for that. But it’s incredibly rare.)

1. Log in to your Blogger blog as normal, and click to create a new post.
2. Compile your post as normal. Then, when you’re done, click ‘schedule’ on the right hand side and it will open up this drop down menu. Select the date and time you want the post to go live (be sure to double check the time zone your blog is set up for, if the post needs to be live at a certain time), then click ‘done’.
3. The drop down menu will close, and the date and time you selected will be stored, ready to go. Click ‘publish’.
4. You’ll then be pinged back to your list of blog posts. Right there, in the list, will be your scheduled blog post, sitting there ready to go for whenever you’ve set it up. Voila!

Wow – I can’t believe it. Can’t believe that I’ve been self-employed for three years, running Writer Marketing Services. I’ve loved every minute, so I thought it was fitting to have a bit of a celebration, and a toast to many more years of doing PR, marketing, blog tours, release blitzes, websites and much more for writers and small businesses.
So, here goes… a giveaway! Yes, that’s right – the chance to get something for FREE!
Just fill in the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win your choice of either a FREE release blitz or one week blog tour. And don’t forget to tell all your friends.
“Writer Marketing Services was a lifesaver. On relatively short notice and on a tight schedule, Lucy took our vision and created a completely new website. She was readily available to answer our numerous questions and was always patient, willing and more than capable. I’m thrilled with our decision to work with her, and should we ever need help again, she’ll be first on our list to call.”
I recently gave the Long and Short Reviews website a huge overhaul. All the information is in my portfolio.
Well, spring is upon us, and I’m pleased to report that I’m springing ahead with projects, and have recently completed three websites, amongst lots of other PR work for both contract and ongoing clients.
“Lucy Felthouse not only organised a wonderful blog tour for the publication of my latest novel, but she also then set up a website for me; this was something I should have done years ago but never got round to as it seemed too complex for my luddite technological skills. Her explanations, suggestions and ideas made it easy and then her hard work made this a reality. Thank you.” – Maxim Jakubowski
“I just finished a total website overhaul created by Lucy Felthouse of Writer Marketing Services. I heartily endorse both the product and the process. Lucy was able to take my half-formed concepts and flesh them out with her experience and her eye for what will work best on the page. At every step of the way, she was patient and taught me what I need to know to be able to maintain the site myself and make future changes. Thank you, Lucy!” – Adriana Kraft
I’m also busily running and booking blog tours, as well as preparing for several new projects, including some that were picked up as a result of my talk at the recent Eroticon conference. Myself and colleague and friend Victoria Blisse did a session on blog tours, which much to our delight (we were up against some tough competition) was really well attended and sparked lots of interest and discussion. You can’t ask for any more than that!
So, if you’re looking for a new website, a blog tour, a review submission package or something more bespoke, let me know as soon as you can, and I can get your project planned in. I look forward to hearing from you.
Today I added another satisfied customer to my portfolio! Diane Alberts, a romance writer, asked me to create a new website for her and her fast growing collection of books, and today the project was completed. As is the case with these projects, there was lots of to-ing and fro-ing, but the site is now complete and Diane has let me know she’s very happy with the results. So much so, that she wrote me this glowing recommendation:
Lucy listened to what I wanted, and gave me all of it..but in a better version than what I’d pictured! I asked for beauty and simplicity, and she followed through. Her updates were frequent, and she never left me wondering if she was working hard on my site- I knew she was! I highly recommend Lucy if you want a friendly, knowledgeable, detail-conscientious web designer!
In other news, I’ve scheduled several blog tours of late, and I’m now scheduling into February. So if you’re looking to run a blog tour for your new book, please contact me ASAP to make sure you get the dates you require! More info and pricing on blog tours here.
Well, I have been busy of late! I’ve completed two new websites, both for creative types. One was for Maggie Hatchard, a Staffordshire based artist, who specialises in flowers and architecture. The other was for Slave Nano, an erotic writer whose naughty stories are definitely not for the faint hearted! You can see both websites in my Portfolio and follow the links if you want to check out their sites.
I also ran a week-long blog tour for Tabitha Rayne to help promote her new release, Mia’s Books. It went very well and Tabitha was so pleased with the service that she wrote me a lovely testimonial, which you can see here, along with Slave Nano’s newly added testimonial.
I’m now busy working on another website, as well as some promotion for existing clients and also a non-fiction title. It’s all go!
