BEST time of day to post to Facebook
« on: Jul 18, 2014 @ 06:36 AM »
Hi Bloggers!

I am very new to this whole blogging thing (only 2 weeks so far). I am wondering if you always publish your blog post at a specific time. If so, is there any reasoning behind when you post? For instance, my new post is ready to go, but I haven't posted it yet because I am thinking that it might be too early in the morning. Although, now that I think about it, other moms will most likely be up bright and early anyway.

I think I'm thinking to much into this, but I want to get the most views as possible.

I have found that 8am works best for me. If I post in the afternoon or at night it seems that it doesn't get as many hits. Hope that helps!

I started sending out my posts at 6 am. But then I did a survey of my readers and found that most of them were reading it on their lunch hours. So I switched to posting it at 11 am. This gives me a little extra time to tweak my posts in the morning if I'm not completely happy with them the night before.  Happy blogging!

I send my posts out mid-day, but I re-publish them through social media in the evening.  I schedule my Twitter posts several times throughout the week, and if it's a topic that got a lot of hits/comments, I might repost it more often.

I saw an article on Mashable that said Wednesday at (I think) noon Eastern on Wednesdays. However, I read that the best time to post to Twitter is either early in the morning or later in the afternoon. I'm still figuring this out myself, lol. However, for advertising something to Facebook, I've found that noon Eastern has been good for me. I still haven't figured out Twitter. I'm very bad at this whole Twitter thing.
