Ideas

"One post every [random_time]" for starter bloggers

    I'm a starter blogger, and even though my blogs are smashing hot, if I post more than one a day it might show badly on my count, as older posts might not be at the top of my main page, which is the one thing visitors read the first.

    So my idea is to implement a "post every [random_time]" option, so if I feel like adding a post (because the muses had a wild night and decided to spend it with me) it might then appear online in a <random_time>, thus giving the impression I post now and then (the cornerstone of any self-respected blogger).

    Caveats include pinging every time the [random_timed] post hits front page.

    Let me know if you think this is useful for you, or if you share the idea as valuable (I do).

    Perhaps you can do this with a plug-in, so I'm changing the status of this (blatantly genious) idea

    ps: I won't be able to blog this idea right now just because it will consume the space of my last (one hour ago) sticky interesting hot post!

    Cool idea. Since there isn't anything like this, what I've always done is picked an hour for it to be published, then I put a "natural sounding" amount for the minutes. Like 6:03AM, 12:37PM, 9:12AM, 3:17PM.

    It seems bizarre to me to try to simulate the posting style of a "self-respected blogger" by using a plugin to randomize posting times. I'd say be yourself, and that includes be as random as yourself!

    Why not save your potential posts as Drafts, then Publish them at random times?
