    Part of the posting time also just has to do with time zones. If you have a lot of UK/European readers, they are reading when we are asleep or getting ready for work.

    Good going for coming through it all! Here’s to December 😀

    Congrats! You did it and that’s no mean accomplishment. So glad we ‘met’ during this bloggy thing. 🙂

    Glad you got through it. I’ve never paid attention to the posting times perhaps I should. I didn’t find I really got any readers from the blogher site did you? X

      No i don’t think i got a single visitor from BlogHer – I think you have to post your posts ON the BlogHer website to get any recognition from them.

          That’s really disappointing to hear. Glad I didn’t waste my time.

            yes it was a waste of time, for me anyway but one lives and learns to tell the tale 🙂

    Sitting here nodding my head at just about every point you make. Intention? Check. Giving back? Check. Last minute posts that get buried? Check. And so it goes.
    I’m sure glad to have met you through Nano Poblano and look forward to reading your future posts.

    I’m glad to read your intention on scheduling posts, Cheney. I’ve been doing that this month, too. I like to post mine to come on at 7 a.m. our time in the east. I get up early, just a bit after that, and get the url and do my promote tweet and teases on Facebook and LinkedIn, different on all three. Then I get to reading comments on mine posts and other people’s posts, and writing second posts for my blog for the day and the post to schedule for the next morning. Yup, a lot of work, mixing in life and the paid writing gigs and 40-hour-per job searching but like you said, you need to have the intent to make it work.

      That is a crazy amount of work you do! And here I am, the day after I said I was going to do it… I didn’t schedule a post for today, and now it’s after 11pm and I’m schlepping online to blog, lol! One day at a time. I don’t advertise anywhere, or promote my post to my FB or Twitter friends. I don’t want my IRL people to know I have a blog… yet.. or whatever.

        Everybody has their own way and pace and motivations, Cheney. I’m further along in the writing race than you are, so I have to be running faster. Simple as that. 🙂
