Wonderful new Blogger feature

Blogger has a wonderful new feature. It allows you to schedule posts for future publication. However, it's not available from the regular Blogger dashboard. Instead of signing in to the regular Blogger, go to Blogger in Draft, and sign in with your usual username and password. Write your post as you normally would, and then click Post Options, next to the Labels field, at the bottom of your post. Choose a publication time that suits you, then click the publish button. Your post will then be assigned the status of 'scheduled', and will be automatically published at the time you choose. Cool or what?

Yes, that is really cool! Thanks for sharing this!

Great! Now I can pace my genius, instead of 3-4 post eruptions every week or so. Thanks for sharing.

Up and running - great !
I'm not sure how I would use such a feature but it's nice to know it exists.

My google reader told me about this new feature, which I tried last night. And it worked too!!

Thanks for the info, that could come in very useful.
I've had a look, but it seems to me that my Post Options are the same at both Blogger addresses. The date and time option look just the same. I've already used it to move a rapidly published post that I later edited, but I didn't know if it would work for automatic posting. I'll have to try it!

It's a great feature, isn't it? Dragonstar, nothing looks different in the Blogger Draft mode. But when you hit the publish button, go to your list of posts, and you'll see the word 'scheduled' next to the post you published with a future date.
