How To Schedule Your Post On WordPress For More View And Follows Part 2

Wow gif

I have been meaning to do this post for quite a while now because I had a couple of requests on my comments section asking me for it. So sorry it took forever and here it is- hope it helps.

For the full tutorial on how to schedule your post click here.

Scheduling your posts so that your posts go up at the optimum time for your blog is a great way to increase views and follows. Here are some ways to find the perfect time to schedule your post:

Check when your optimum reach time is- This is the easiest way to check what day and time you get the best views. In your insights section it will tell you what your most popular day and time is. Try to post at this time regularly and you will notice an increase in views.

Notice when you get more comments- Try posting at different times for a couple of days and check when you get the most comments. Comments are important because they show activity and seeing when you get the most comments will help you figure out when your audience is most active and therefore you can schedule your post to go up at this time to increase activity on your blog.

Early bird or night owl– Most people don’t usually use WordPress throughout the day and like most social media people tend to check it in the morning before nine and in the evenings after six. Scheduling your post to go up at these times will help increase your views and follows since more people are likely

Don’t keep changing the times- Once you are able to figure out your optimum time don’t keep changing the times when you post. Schedule your posts to go up at that time every time you post so that your audience knows when to visit your blog. It is very easy to lose views/follows when you keep posting at different times.

How To Schedule Your Posts On WordPress For More View And Follows Part 1

Wow gif

I have been meaning to do this post for quite a while now because I had a couple of requests on my comments section asking me for it. So sorry it took forever and here it is- hope it helps.

I thought I would write the first part of this blog on how to actually schedule your post. WordPress can be a little tricky sometimes to get the hang of and I thought I would share this post first to help new bloggers learn how they can schedule their posts. The next post will be about the benefits of scheduling your post as well as how to schedule the perfect times for your post to get more views and follows.

  1. Once you are done writing your post on your dashboard go to the right side of the screen where it says “publish” and select the “edit” button.

2. Next pick the time and date you would like the post to be published.

3. After picking the time and date click the “OK” button.

4. After clicking ‘OK’ you will notice that blue button that usually says ‘Publish’ will have changed to ‘Schedule’. Click on the ‘Schedule’ button and this will complete the process of scheduling your post.

Let me know in the comments if this was helpful!

Lichen Poem: Hedgehogs(Guest Post)

By caden738

Hedgehogs in the grass

Hedgehogs in the sticks

Hedgehogs burrowed under the overpass

Baby Hedgehogs with their little quivers, & pricks

You grow the love them more

Love multiplying as the days go by

Then as love tightens the pricks feel softer than before

As you hold them sitting in the grass with them, ‘neath the cloudy sky

Blogger Recognition Award

I want to thank Pinki Jana for nominating me for this award it’s always so much fun to do! Do be sure to check out her awesome blog about books, lifestyle and more!

About the Blogger Recognition Award

The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.
Bloggers are very talented people – they work hard, they promote, market, advertise, run a busy site.
They organise all kinds of activities, they encourage, motivate, interact, engage and are community orientated. It matters not if they are shy and reticent or loud and personable – each actively progressive blogger is the same – they all work hard and passionately with their blogs, they put the hours in to deliver to their audience each day a welcoming location to read, absorb, learn and have fun.
To escape the hustle bustles of city life, or the begrudgeries of boredom – they entice readers to peruse their pages to look for entertainment.
That is what the BRA celebrates.

The Award Rules
  • Write a post displaying your award.
  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • Tell the story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
  • Nominate other bloggers for the award.
  • Let the nominees know that you have nominated them.
How My Blog Started

I had always loved writing and new that I wanted to write and one of my friends started a blog so I thought I would too because that would be the perfect way to start out and get better at writing as well as build an audience for my work.

My Piece Of Advice For New Bloggers
  1. Don’t give up and always do you. I know it’s not easy to give your opinions and be yourself online but you should because it’s really worth it and your readers will appreciate you being genuine.
  2. I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers these days, especially new ones, leave their links on the comments sections of other peoples posts- trust me you don’t want to do this. It’s super annoying and instead of giving you more traffic people are going to get pissed off and avoid you on purpose. Instead look for blogs that have a share and promote page and leave your link there.

3 Reasons (Guest Post)

By Shah Ustav

In our day-to-day life, we meet different people around ourselves. We are surrounded by different people. Everyone is in chaos. Due to which, we don’t have time to talk with people to peace. We talk to them in chaos.

We are the creators of relationship. We only have control over the bonds. It is in our hands either to strong our bond or weaken it. For it, we must know what type of people they are we are associating with. There must be love between relationship.

Do you know why people are in your life? Why they are associating with you? What makes them your loved ones? What makes them trustworthy people? What is there between them and you? What makes a relationship?

Here, I have discussed the 3 reasons for which people came into your life.

People came into your life for 3 reasons:
1. For Season
2. For Reason
3. For Lifetime

1. For Season.

The first reason for which people come into our lives is for Season.

People come into our lives for Season. What it means? Like a season, it lasts for only some time. It isn’t a long lasting relationship. It lasts for some time like a season.

They are the people who are selfish. They only think about themselves. No one matters in their life. You are the not the person who matters in their lives. You are just the source of getting used. You’ll be used by different people. It sucks.

You’ll be left with broken heart. It may be possible that you love the people around yourself but they just show that they love you too. But they don’t. They just show that they love you but they don’t feel even a single thing you feel. It means they are using you.

People who are type of that nature always lose. They don’t know what is a relationship. They don’t know how much it sucks when someone use us and broke the heart.

They are seasonal people. Just come into your life and pass away like a season.

But you should find what type of people you are tolerating around yourself. If they just call you for some work, do the same. Simple. Do not try to be more personal if someone tries to use you and your talent. That’s it.

2. For Reason.

Some people come into our lives for a reason. Here, it doesn’t means of selfishness. They don’t come to make themselves rich. Instead, they come to help you.

One of my sisters has marked the bad habit in me that I always take things very seriously. I should give up on that habit because when I will leave my comfort zone, different people will use me.

Very true. But I take things seriously only when my beloved ones hurt me. I never ever get hurt by any fellows. I don’t even get hurt by my friends. It’s only for my loved ones. That’s it.

Some people are in our lives for a reason. They want to help you in every way possible. They will stand by your side in each and every situation. They want to help you and get yourself out from such harsh situations.

They do this without any intention. They just do this to make bond stronger. No matter you’ll help them in future or not. They just want to make a relationship stronger.

That relationship doesn’t mean to only lovers. That relationship is each and every relationship exists in the world whether it is brother-sister relationship or parents- offspring’s relationship. It doesn’t matter.

3. For Lifetime.

People who come into our lives for a reason may be ultimately change to people for lifetime.

I have many people who are for me and I am for them for lifetime. No matters how many difficulties will be there but I will be always standing by their side.

People who are in your life forever are generally loved ones. But there are some others who just stop by you for your help. They just want themselves to be greater than you. They just sit upon your chest and never get down from it.

The solution to it is to just say ‘NO’. Simple.

I have many people for Lifetime. They are my family, my sisters and my brothers till now. I don’t know about the future and also, I don’t want too. Just I care about my present. That’s it.

At last, know your people. Do you know what type of people you are with? How many people you have for lifetime? No one?
