Ability to Post-Date on Blogger

One of the most frustrating problems that I had working in "Blogger" - the software provider that I use to create and host this blog, was that I couldn't post-date a post. So, if I wanted to post something for a week from now, I had to physically log in and post it that day, which was not always convenient. The regular panel for Blogger would allow me to put in a later date for a post, but if I hit publish, the post would immediately appear on my blog - it would just have a later date.

In the event that other Blogger users out there have struggled with the same issue, there is a way to post-date your posts. Instead of logging into Blogger at www.blogger.com, use http://draft.blogger.com. Then you can use your publishing options to input a later date, hit "publish" and the post will be published on the day that you want it to be. I can't even begin to tell you how much easier this has made my life, especially when it comes to posting on my Moment of Beauty blog where I create a post for each day!
