Excellent post Amelia!! Really liked the way how you emphasized on listing ideas & consistency, the 2 things that go a long way in giving results.

A nifty method I use for drafting is to save it on Dev.to itself (as my blog is here itself but most other forums have similar provisions too). Syncs across desktop/mobile to resume from where I left ๐Ÿ˜„

Curious to know how do you add new ideas for blogs (I prefer my experiences but find more often than not there's already a post on it) - if you could please share

Thank you @vinayhegde1990 ! Glad you enjoyed it and found it valuable! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Oh, that surely helps too! I like to have my drafts ready before the day I want to post. Makes for easy publishing in the morning! (Wish we could schedule posts though ๐Ÿ˜ค)

Curious to know how do you add new ideas for blogs

Hmm, let's see. For now, I think I get most of my ideas from past experiences but I also get inspired by content I find here. Sometimes someone's comment lights something in my head and I take it from there. I also find it helpful to think in terms of topics. For instance productivity. What do I know about productivity that I can share with others? And like that I tend to come up with more ideas based on a given topic. ๐Ÿ˜ (I must admit that I think A LOT, so coming up with blog ideas is piece of cake for me, hehe). Hope that helps somehow!๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Thank you, these suggestions will definitely help me in creating more content.

I agree there should be a way to schedule posts but unfortunately it appears as if a previous issue didn't find enough traction to be developed as a feature.

Make possible to schedule articles to a later date #6894

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

It's not really related to a problem but to a pain I have. Most of the times I plan my month of articles and I have to start writing them in other apps before and leave them saved so I can post on the date, but the problem is that I sometimes am not at my computer or I have a trip scheduled and cannot publish the article.

Describe the solution you'd like

It'd be awesome if we could write articles on dev.to and then schedule them to be published on a later date.

Describe alternatives you've considered

I've considered creating some sort of app to post it to me but I haven't found any integration APIs.
