Trying to Write Ahead

Well, I plan on heading to Honduras for a mission trip in the within the next few weeks and will be gone for 10 days.  I will have limited time and internet access while there so I will be working diligently to write some extra posts over the next week or so for my main personal finance blog.  I would like to get those posts scheduled to come out over the time while I am away so that I don't have 10 days without any activity.

I think this is one of the coolest features about Wordpress that I had never really embraced until I started writing for my own site.  I am pretty sure that I could schedule posts here as well, but I never really felt the need.  I was writing whenever I could for the content farms, and it didn't really matter to me to maintain a certain level of consistency.

But now since I am trying to build a strong blog and following, I think it is vital to interact and stay active.  I have been posting 2-3 times per week, and I believe that it would be detrimental not to publish any new material over a 10 day stretch.  So, I will writing furiously tomorrow and this weekend to get several posts ahead.

Well, I better get busy so this post will be somewhat short.


  1. Kidgas - Have a safe trip and see you when you get back. :)

  2. Thanks so much. Last year, we were robbed at gunpoint so I am hoping to avoid that this year. And I would prefer not to have a plane crash also.

  3. Have fun, be safe, and good for you for doing good works for other people.

    I schedule for sites that have hit the sandbox. I'll order or write up a ton. Right now I have 15 posts scheduled on one site that was sandboxed, and set them to drip out across 30 days. Hopefully that would help the issue. Scheduling has some perks all around. People should be aware!

    Best of luck.

  4. That sounds like you have a good system for managing a sandboxed site. I don't have as many as you yet, but I will keep that in mind when trying to build up something new.

  5. I so admire what you're doing. Hope your trip is safe and successful.

    See when you get back. Oh, and yes, the timed post feature is really a life saver.
