I was doing so well. My views were climbing, visitors were getting as regular as bowel movements, and I was seeing legit proof of my existence on the vast expanse that is the internet. And then I disappear for a week and it all goes down the drain.
Now we’re back to square one. The only difference is that I’m no longer on the vacation-rotation that was Community Health. I am on death-to-all-who-enter-here Medicine. I am a zombie programmed to study brains. And hearts. And everything in between.
What options does that leave me with? Pre-writing and scheduling posts.
Call me old-fashioned but I just don’t think scheduled posts have quite the same impact as fresh ones do. I know, readers can’t tell the difference, but I’ve got this gut feeling that the statistics tell a different story. Alas, I have no choice.
So, like a new mother with only three months maternity leave, I’m afraid I’ll be expressing quite a bit.
But at least it’s better than the other stuff.
Can you tell the difference when a writer schedules a post rather than just hitting publish after writing/editing?
