When to Post Each Day

Scheduling posts for 8:00 A.M. each day presents certain problems.  It means that I often can't wake up in the morning and work on a new post, because I'll usually be sleeping past 8 A.M.

When I've scheduled a post and then try to edit it later, Blogger tends to create duplicate copies of that post, which is an annoyance.

If I usually sleep between midnight and 10:00 A.M., then that would suggest I should schedule blog posts sometime in the afternoon or evening.  That way, I'll have usually been awake for a few hours before the deadline.

Maybe I should ditch the schedule altogether and just focus on making one-post-per day.  That gives me far more flexibility, and it will let me edit posts up until the moment of publishing.  I'll also be able to edit posts after publishing without worrying about making duplicate copies.  It does take away an element of reliability from this blog, but the truth is I already missed a couple of my 8 A.M. deadlines this week.
