Writing Posts in Advance - How Far?610

Member dzflower453 private msg quote post Address this user
Hi,

I know that sometimes we write posts to be published days, weeks, or months later. Is there a timeframe out in the future beyond which you want to avoid? (Like you wouldn't want to be writing stuff to publish 4 months later?) I guess having evergreen posts would neglect the point of this post.

@dzflower453

I just wrote a series of posts that are scheduled out till the end of May.

Evergreen posts have no limit

Timely posts, I write and publish the same day.

What if you have little control over when they're published, @belew? Should we communicate to the person deciding the publishing dates?

@AlyssaYoung

Yes, you should. If your post is timely or you have a specific date you want it published, it should be communicated.

Does it mean to write and schedule for one month in advance?

@tienny

Yes, that happens.

When I know I will be gone for a couple of weeks and not be able to be at my pc to write daily, I often write things to go out later.

I like to be one to two weeks ahead, however I now tend to be only one or two days ahead. Just need to kick myself a little at times and sleep less, work more.

I have scheduled two days just to write, Friday and Saturday this week, and provided I don't get sidetracked, writing is all I am planning to do ... however I have to be careful now and make sure I don't start writing longer articles than I intended, which of course take more time meaning I still don't schedule as many as I intended.

@Steve Don't worry about the length.

If they run long, divide them up in to parts 1, 2, 3 or the like and link them to each other.

Then combine all of them and put it on LI as one long post.

I started doing that after a while, too.

@Belew believe it or not I have never done that, I have planned a series of posts on a topic... but I have never thought to just break one up because it ran long.

Genius ....

I think you can write them out as far as you want IF you glance them over the day BEFORE you post to make sure it still makes sense the day of posting.

Thank you.....do you do this often?
I am looking at possibly doing this for my social media internship this summer. I will probably look at some financial topics that will be relevant a few months out from the summer so I can keep uploading content during the school year.
