How to Schedule a Post in Blogger

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.)

2.┬áCompile 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’.
