One of the cardinal rules of blogging is to be consistent with how often you post. Whether you post several times a day, a once a week, or even once a month, its important to be consistent. So what do you do if you know you are going to be away from your computer for a few days or weeks and don't want your readers to miss an update? Schedule them in advance!

Most blogging platforms allow you to create drafts of posts and schedule them for later publication. You can usually find this feature in your editing options. If you are disciplined about posting regularly, its always a good idea to have a few posts handy for the unexpected. When your plans blow up and you don't get to blog, when you're on vacation, sick, or just have a day of writers-block. Knowing you have a few posts stashed for a rainy day can relieve a lot stress.

So next time you're on a creative roll, write a few posts ahead of time! Do any of you have other tips that can help reduce the stress of blogging?

Hi Jenny - I have to resist the temptation to do the same thing! My life schedule is not consistent and so I don't always get the time to create posts regularly. I can totally understand the desire to post when the mood is there. Its also nice when posts are real-time and current. The posts I save for later are usually what I call "evergreen", meaning they will be as relevant later as they are now.

I don't know, I like to save my posts for when I feel like blogging. If they just sit there waiting to be posted, I get itchy fingers and post them and then I feel like I've posted to much. I hate posting every day.
