Each day I look through articles and blog posts relating to my blog topic…social media. When I’m reading through these articles, and posts/comments on social networking sites (i.e. Twitter and Facebook), the questions which catch my eye most are; ‘where is the best place to blog?’ and ‘when’s the right time to blog?’
A blog post can be published anywhere and at any time. However, when you choose to publish the post is down to you.
If you’re unsure when the best time to post is try posting a blog post at different times in the day, and see which gets the most hits. This way you’ll be able to see what time your audience is most active at. I have tried this, however what I began doing was publishing a post at around 5/6pm (GMT), this way my audience in the United Kingdom are (generally) home from work/school/college etc. and so are able to tune into my blog. Additionally, by posting at 5/6pm (GMT) I am also including other countries into my demographic, including my largest audience in the United States. By posting later on in the day in the UK (i.e 5/6pm) it ensures your posts will reach a wider audience, of people who are available.
As for ‘where is the best place to blog?’…anywhere! Literally, wherever inspiration strikes…such as right now I’m writing this on a train journey (how is that for dedication?).
Even if you get an idea for a blog post jot it down, that idea will (hopefully) develop. You don’t have to compose the whole blog post via. your mobile device ‘on the go‘; you can begin a blog post, save it as a draft and continue writing later.
