      To post of Twitter, you need to go to that site. This is Hubpages. We do not write posts here.

        Then how about a deadline calendar or something. Wha t money? If you schedule an article, or give them a deadline, it will give them a nudge. It helps with accountability.

          Not sure what you mean by a deadline calendar. I certainly do not want or expect anyone else in my life to give me a deadline. That would be the moment I walk. (A nudge can also be considered a shove in the back. I do not want anyone shoving me in the back.)
          Accountability? To whom?
          As far as money, this site can be a good income earner when you have more evergreen articles and they are in the right place. I earn a decent salary here.

            A deadline calendar. A calendar of deadlines, even if it's not an actual day. A nudge like like a count-down timer. So you have your edit article link and a way to give yourself a deadline, even if it's due in two weeks or something. It should be an option. Accountability to the community. Maybe we can pick an accountability partner.

          You can do this yourself. Get an app that encourages you to write a certain number of words a day/week/month. Todoist comes to mind - you can set tasks (writing an article or just a part of an article) for yourself. I think it works on phones and laptops. And there's Trello, which is similar, I believe.

          There are also writing programs like Scrivener, in which you can set a word goal. Even using a kitchen timer can help you get words onto the screen.

    Honest question: why?  For content writing the best time to post is generally immediately.

    We don't write 'posts'here. It's not a blogging platform, it's an article site.

    Hi Mellissa, I was looking at your site and saw that you are visually impaired. Just want to congratulate you on your books, and your courage in not letting anything stop you doing what you want to do smile

      Hi, the reason for scheduling articles is to have some going out in the future, that way you can't be working on articles and have others headed out, what's wrong with that? Yes, I agree with the poster who said, it would make them do the piece, it would make me do them also. I also think we need more topics or should be able to create topics. Like there is no topic called accessibility or disability.

        That makes no sense. If you want an article going out in the future, write another article. If you have an article ready to publish, publish it immediately.
        Concerning the subject of topics, do not worry about it. You need to write each of your articles so that they are moved to a niche sites and are not left on the Hubpages main site. I seriously doubt Hubpages is willing to waste its time creating new topics for a site that does not get much traffic. (Look at the sites HealthProAdvice and Patients Lounge)

    I personally would support this idea. I am not someone who logs in everyday anymore, after this many years. I have multiple articles sitting in draft mode that I work on when the writers block goes away. However, I genuinely want to also show I am still writing on the site to HP "friends" I want to be able to maybe schedule something once every month or so. Also, I think it would be good for encouraging me to actually write if I could schedule something and know I needed to take the extra time with it to get it done sooner than later.

      There is no need to schedule articles here. The idea is, frankly, daft. Write an article, proofread it (some like to leave it sit a day or two before the final once-over), then publish. Why would you want to delay it? There is no advantage to doing so. It's different with blog posts that require timing and which have a limited shelf-life. HubPages articles are supposed to be evergreen so therefore the day and time of publishing has almost no relevance.

      Writers block isn't really a thing. Decide to write. Put yourself in front of your computer and write. Reluctance to write is just that, reluctance. Don't give it more importance by calling it 'writer's block'.

      If you need more discipline, then make yourself a work schedule and stick to it.

        Everything about this reply came off condescending.
        I work full time (right now 2 jobs to help a fellow business owner), have 3 children, 2 special needs, and have multiple illnesses that impact my brain causing my memory to be horrible and cause all sorts of issues for my writing that I use to not deal with.
        I've been here just as long as you. I get my monthly payments, so I am quite aware what this site is, and what articles should be.
        If I want to schedule something it would be my income interfered with anyway. So if it became a thing here, if you didn't like it you could just not do it.

          Sorry, you are right. Apologies.

          However, my point about scheduling articles stands. It's a magazine site, not a blogging platform. Scheduling posts is about holding them back until, let's say, a certain day of the month, or a particular time of day. There's simply no point in developing such a facility because articles are stand-alone pieces of writing. If a writer wants to publish at a certain time or day, they can quite easily do so.

        Sorry, but writer's block is a "thing".  There are days when I need to write a hub because I have a free afternoon, but I sit down in front of my laptop and . . . nothing.  My brain just won't let me write anything.  No amount of discipline or work schedules will overcome this.  I know because I have tried both for years.  Writing must come very easily for you.  It is very difficult for me.

          theraggededgeposted 3 years agoin reply to this

          No, it isn't easy, but I learned how to deal with that blank page/blank mind issue. Just start writing... about anything at all. Describe your surroundings, anything. Once you start writing the ideas begin to come.

          Alternatively, if you know the topic you want to write about, make lists of the points you'd like to make. Those are the basis of your subheadings. Then put them in order. Then maybe write a sentence for each one. Then a paragraph. Before you know it, you have a fully-formed article that just needs a few tweaks.

          Rarely does writing come out of thin air. I used to produce a 1,000 word article on Monday, Tuesday and Weds. 52 weeks for three years. If I waited for inspiration, nothing would happen and I wouldn't get paid. The more often you do it, the easier it becomes.

          There are free tools available, such as Google suggest, Answer the Public, Quora, etc. to help writers come up with questions, topics, and titles - there is no shortage of ideas. Sometimes I go back over previous articles and look for a new slant or a way to bridge off from the old one into a new aspect.

          If you have a free afternoon coming up, spend a few minutes playing around with ideas so that you have somewhere to start from instead of sitting down and thinking, "What can I write?" Keep a notebook, jot down ideas that come to you when you are reading, watching TV, surfing the internet. Go to the network site where your best articles are and see what others are doing and then do something even better (and different, of course). Look at magazines on your favorite topics. I like to look at titles only and come up with my own article to fit that title.

          The tricks are endless.

            Been there, tried that.  I always sit down to write with a topic, detailed notes and an outline.  The writing doesn't always happen.  It's just how my brain works, or in this case, doesn't work.  I've still managed to write 189 hubs, mostly in the past two years.

      You cold be creating other articles and have a group slotted over months. It would automatically go out, even on the niche sites. Book reviews are evergreen, the need for accessibility is still evergreen.We should be given the option.

      1. theraggededge profile image96
        theraggededgeposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        I keep trying to explain. It won't work on this site. You are asking for the team to invest time and money into creating a facility that very few will use because it's pointless. It is not like Wordpress or Blogger. If you write an article on accessibility, why would you want it published in three months rather than right now? What does it matter if you publish three articles this week and then none for two months? At least those articles are out there now, gaining traffic and maturity. Holding articles back is not good for the writer or for the site. If it's ready, press Publish.

        And I don't understand how delaying publishing can help productivity? I must be missing something. If it's so important to you, why don't you simply write them and keep them on your computer? Or write them, upload to HP, and just don't press Publish. They'll stay in draft until you are ready. It's just a two-step process: edit/publish. Why the need for an extra layer of technology?

        You can't assume any article will be automatically go to a niche site. The writer doesn't get to choose. You said it yourself, evergreen is evergreen, therefore they don't need a specific publishing date.

    The point is that the right time to post web content is always "now".  There is no benefit to delayed timing or a specific timing schedule.
