Today’s post is about what happens after I press “Publish” for a new blog post entry.
I usually have my posts scheduled to publish a little after midnight. I will have already looked at, edited, spell-checked and previewed the post. If I’m up, I may take a look at it again if I’m on the computer. If not, it will wait till later on when I wake up. Yes, I’m one of those people who goes on the computer when they wake up.
If something catches my attention and I want to immediately blog about it, I go through the same routine as my scheduled posts. And even though I’ve already previewed the post, I will still check it again once it’s published.
I do two more things after a post is published. I check the stats page throughout the day to see what search terms are being used, which posts are being viewed and who sent readers my way. Also, I recently installed a map on my blog that shows the locations of people who visit my blog. I’m curious to see where my readers are from and it’s been really interesting to see more dots show up on the map each day.
That’s pretty much it. Once a post has been published, I’m usually done with it.
