How to Schedule Your Crochet Blog Post in Blogger

how to schedule a post in blogger on crochetbusiness.com

Yesterday I shared 5 (6) apps or tools that may save you time in your business blogging. One of the tips I shared is to schedule your blog posts for the future.

Some days you just don’t have the time or the inspiration to take on blogging. The holiday rush is an example of one of those times. What do you do?

First, plan ahead. If you know you’ll be away on vacation or craft show season is upon you, pre-write your posts. You may also want to consider having guest bloggers on share something.

Second, utilize the scheduling option in your blogging platform. Below is a short screencast tutorial on how to schedule your blog post in blogger. Tomorrow I’ll share how to do this in WordPress. (Sorry Weebly.com users. This capability is not yet available.)

A couple of things to note: (all are optional)

  • Comments are welcome and encouraged
  • Visit the FB group and add your post for the day to the pinned post if you’d like to receive at least 2-comments on your post. (see video tutorial)
  • Join the Crochet Business Blogger G+ Community
  • Community Happenings: Friday Facebook Fanpage Hop-a-long
  • Add your blog url to the linky (not the post url) – this will help you identify who is participating
  • As you are visiting other bloggers, take note of any similarities you have or complimentary projects/services you have. This is a great time to jot down the blog name and get to know the blogger behind the blog.
  • Don’t stress on writing a post each day. A picture with your thoughts, a video, a top 5 list, or simply a quote on why you like crochet all counts as a post.

Recommended Resource: Craft Business Powers: 15 Days to a Profitable Online Craft Business (affiliate link) by Jason and Cinnamon Miles is just $.99 on Amazon Kindle today. Excellent book for understanding how to sell and market crafts.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting this amazing series. I’m just joining in but I’m excited about all I’ve learned already! I even planned out 31 days of post or at least ideas! I’m going to work really hard at devoting more time to blogging this year!

    • Elisabeth, it is nice to have you on board. That is great. I know a few bloggers who are pre-planning their posts this year and setting up guest author spots in preparation for illness and other unforeseen happenings.
