One of the best things about WordPress, is that it lets you schedule blog posts (in advance) to be automatically published at a specified time. This is a great feature not only for bloggers who do a lot of traveling, but also for those who run a multiple blogs.
I have been using this feature here at WPKube to schedule blog posts ahead of time, so I can give more time to other projects. As I started scheduling more blog posts, I realized it had one small glitch.
