Thoughts on Posting from the Road

Anyone who’s done any digging around on my blog knows that I’m using Squarespace. My last blog, Be Innovation, was a Wordpress blog. And I made the switch for a number of reasons, and so far I’m happy with the move.

One thing that I’ve grown quite fond of on Squarespace is posting to a future date. It allows me to put in a few hours of work, get a couple days’ worth of posts done, and post them all in one sitting.

And best of all, it allows me to maintain a consistent schedule of posting when my schedule is all but that. As this post goes live, I’m flying to Kansas City.

But this future posting strategy brings up some interesting thoughts. What if tragedy struck? What if an extraordinary event happened in my life? What if my life, for one reason or another, ended?

My posts would still go up as planned. That’s a creepy thought, but it’s the reality of the world we live in. Like social media profiles which stay active after someone has passed away.

Want to take part in an experiment? If you have a blog with the ability to schedule a post in the future, write one for one year from today. Write it about the state of things, as you expect them to be. And let’s see what happens.
