When Do You Read Blogs?

This post is going to be short, because I don't actually have much to say. It's more about your feedback and comments.

So, here's the thing: this week I discovered a blogging feature called Scheduling. Yea, this week. I know, I know, I'm a little slow on discovering things. But anyway, scheduling made me realise that there could be a most efficient way of running this blog.

For example, if I have nothing to do one week, or if I'm bored, I can write lots of blog posts and schedule them throughout the next few weeks. That way, when I'm super duper busy the next week, hey, I've already done my blogging. Or, if I'm going away on holiday and won't be near technology for a week, then I don't need to worry about being absent from the blogosphere. I'll use scheduled posts.

The point is, I can make this blog work for me.

But more importantly, I can make this blog work for you.

I can now post at the most convenient times for you. I can post just when you're sitting down at your computer with your cup of coffee, rather than just when you're climbing into bed to disappear into Dreamland for eight hours.

So, to make Writing Fire work for you, I want to know when you read your blogs. Do you do it in the morning, at seven or eight, or perhaps later, just before noon? Do you crack open the laptop during your lunch break, or later in the afternoon, or during the evening? And on what days do you read blogs the most?

I'd love it if you included your timezones in your comments, because, as I live in New Zealand (GMT+12 and leading the world into the future), I need to able to convert your answers into local time so that I actually get a good idea of when I should schedule posts for.

So, that's it for today! Happy blog reading!


  1. Usually towards the P.M. But I like it when they've been posted for a while, so I can like, remember to read it. If that makes sense?

    7:00 A.M. is a good time to post them, too.


  2. Glad I came to your blog for a visit. I usually check mine either around 6am EST or anytime after 6pm EST.

  3. When do I check blogs? When I get a spare moment. It can be anywhere from 8 AM until 10 PM (that's PDT or GMT-7 for about two more weeks, and then it'll be GMT-8).

    Schedule when it's convenient for you. The blog will still be in my Reader when I get around to checking them.

  4. I agree with Liz. Whenever I've got time for it! Oh by the way, I've got some questions for you to answer over at my blog

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I read blogs whenever I can. I've been horrible at it lately being involved in a few blogfests and such, but I'll attempt to be more regular in the next month or so.

    You may want to visit my blog today. :)

  6. I get up every morning and read. Right after my older kiddos leave for school. It works for me. I'm a new follower!

  7. There are people who disappear into Dreamland for eight hours?

  8. Thanks guys for commenting :)

    @David: :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D Thanks! I'm so excited :) I've been a bit slack with reading other entries for the Campaigner Challenge ...

    @Erin: Thanks for following!

    @JM: Well ... it's an ideal. I know a few people who do it.

  9. Whenever I can grab a few minutes. I seem to do it a little bit at a time throughout the day. I spend longer reading and leaving comments late at night like after midnight. That is the only time I have any privacy & free time. Kids and hubbie are sleeping and house clean (sometimes).

  10. I typically check blogs in the morning when I'm eating my breakfast, and during my lunch break at work. I schedule my posts for early am because then it's up for the full day.

    Great post - glad I found your blog.
