WordPress scheduled post delay

A schedule is a good thing and it helps to plan ahead when you know you are busy. So, writing a blog entry ahead of time and then scheduling it to post on the appropriate day and time is great, except…

Anyone notice that your scheduled entries aren’t posting at the designated time? Like you said you wanted it to post at 8:00am but notice the time comes around and you still haven’t gotten notification that it has posted. 30 minutes later you’re thinking to yourself, Did I set the wrong time? Did I choose the wrong day?

When you go to check then you get a notification that it has posted. Sometimes that notification, at least for me, doesn’t even come until I get to the actual blog entry to see what was wrong with it.

Here’s the thing, WordPress can’t tell me it was posted and I just didn’t get the notification because there are times I will look at my Reader and my post doesn’t show up there. I scroll and scroll to make sure I didn’t miss it – it’s not there! I got to my blog page and it isn’t there either. That’s when I go straight to the blog entry to actually force it to post.

I have to say it is rather irritating.

Why do I have to do this if I have set a time? Is anyone else experiencing this?

I have a proposal

No, not that kind of proposal.

I know there will be some blow-back on this, but I would like to propose a new weekly work schedule. And while I understand there will be some resistance to this, I also know I will get a ton of support. If that support turns into millions of dollars in donations, well then I will run for president and make it happen.

Wanna hear it? I thought so.

I propose that we have Fridays every three days. None of this wait till the end of the week thing or working for the weekend. We should just adjust the schedule so that every three days is a Friday. Work one day, then a weekend. Work one day, then a weekend. Work one day, then a weekend. Understand? Yeah, I think you do. I can feel your support for this proposal growing by the second.

So, if you would like this to happen, donate money to me and I’ll kick off my presidential campaign as soon as I hit $10 million. That math is easy…I need 1 million people to donate $10 each or 2 million people to donate $5 each. See how easy that is?

OK, if you are with me, donate now!

You know how you have a day coming up that you’re gonna have off work?

How you look forward to that day because you get to sleep in, relax, enjoy your coffee, leisurely read the news or a book, watch a movie or tv show, or just take things slow and enjoy a different pace than a normal day?

Yeah, well, that day off can completely go in the other direction too, right?

How about the day of you look forward to gets all filled up with things that have to be done before the holiday comes and people come over and etc., etc., etc.? That it fills up so fast it hardly feels like a day off? Dashing from here to there, frantically trying to fit more things in on your list because you forgot this and that, and it all needs to be done!

Isn’t it amazing how life just kind of takes over even when you think you’re gonna get a break?

Well, today is that day for me. My to do list seems to be a mile long and all I wanna do is just it. Relax. Enjoy some quiet. Savor the change in routine….but not today!

What’s on your list that just HAS to be done today?

 

Shut up and leave me alone

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep…

Snooze.

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep…

Snooze.

Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep…

OK, fine. Shut up already. I’m up…

Every stupid day of my life (or at least it seems that way).

Alarm clocks are the worst invention ever. OK, maybe not the worst because getting to work on time is a must, so let’s just say they’re the second worst.

Do I really need this job? I could get rid of the alarm clock…
