Hello My Lovelies,

Welcome to the 10th round of Bring IT! here at nittyGriddy!

I decided to start with a little bragging – but in my defense, it’s kinda my way of thanking you for making this community the incredible one that it is. You all rock and I should start serving you wine and cheese when you come to hang out.

Last week’s Bring IT! post on blogging pet peeves has generated 164 comments (and counting) so far.


Can you see the big smile on my face? No? Well, look closer cause here it is again :D.

These darn emoticons just don’t do my teeth justice plus I’m in hiding in the picture. But you can see my friends though ;).

Alright here’s the thing…

I spent hours thinking of a topic for today’s post and as I mentioned last week – I have quite the list but I gotta’ be inspired to write about a particular topic. So I started thinking about the subjects that inspire me at this moment. I tried everything you could possibly think of but I drew a blank. And then I had an epiphany of some sorts.

It’s bloggers I read that inspire me and it’s my readers who comment that motivate me.

They take time out of their busy days to drop by and read what I have to say and then share with others. Not only that, but they leave amazing comments that are as thorough and thoughtful as any blogger could hope for. Ummm…do I need to say 1.6.4 again lol?

So I asked myself…how can I thank them? How can I make their blogging journeys a little easier? What little thing can I do for them in return for all they do for me?

And here’s what I decided. I want you to tell me…

What’s Your Blog Posting Schedule?

But wait…why I’m asking, is not for the same reasons you think!

What the heck do you mean Griddy?

Well, for God’s sake read on!

I want to know what days you publish posts on YOUR blog.

I don’t care if you post whenever you feel like it, every other Tuesday, MWF, everyday except weekends or simply when it rains.

I care that you tell me WHEN in the comments. Explain it to me if you have to but be clear.


Because I’m going to roundup all the posting schedules that are left in the comments and turn them into a simple document with each person’s blog name and the days they post. You’ll be able to see it here, download it and even print it out to put on your fridge or bathroom mirror.

That’s right – I’m making my life harder and yours easier – ha!

Actually, I intend to make Brankica’s life hard as well, because I’ll be running to her for everything techie related. I figured she has to say yes or I’ll threaten to take her dog Roma and suffocate her with bundles of Griddy love and hugs :).

Anyways, two heads are always better than one, so Sharpy will be helping me out.

You will no longer need to remember when some of your favorite blogs publish their articles. All you’ll have to do is look at the golden list that I’ll be providing you with. You can even highlight just the blogs you’re interested in.

But here’s the catch:

If you don’t comment and tell me when you publish, your blog WILL NOT be included in the Mega Guide to Blog Posting Schedules.

Now for the rules:

  1. If I don’t know you (or you’re not sure) and this is your first time commenting on this blog – please tell me your name, nickname or whatever you go by as well as your blog’s name and it’s theme/tagline. Make sure to include a direct link to your blog. I’d also appreciate a small hello. If you want to promote yourself here, you gotta be nice and polite ;).
  2. If you have a set schedule, tell me what days you publish. If you don’t, explain it to me and I will include it as such. Be as specific as you can. If you make it hard on me, I won’t bother too much.
  3. You MUST RT this blog post. And I’ll like you even more if you Digg it, Stumble it, share it on Facebook and wherever else you want. Tell me what you did in the comments.
  4. You have till Tuesday, April 12th 7 pm EST (2 am my time) to leave your details. All comments after that time will NOT be included in the Guide itself.
  5. The Mega Guide will be published here on either Saturday, April 16 or Monday, April 18. The exact date will be disclosed in an update.
  6. If you can think of a better and less boring name for the Mega Guide to Blog Posting Schedules – then I’m all ears. I’ll be brainstorming as well.

That’s it! Now all you gotta do is Bring IT!

As for Me…

Well, many of you know that I publish this series on Wednesday’s and my SuperPost roundups on Sundays. And there’s usually one in between – doesn’t matter on which day, I don’t have a set posting schedule. What matters is that I post quality content frequently and rather consistently.

What About You?

Care to be featured in the Mega Guide to Blog Posting Schedules?

This is your chance to shamelessly promote yourself.

Hit the comments and tell me when you post and anything else you want me to know!

    You can schedule blog posts to automatically publish themselves at any time in the future. If you want to remove an already published post and automatically republish it at a specific time/date in the future, the directions are the same……

    I don’t have any fix schedule I just try to create some awesome post on every weekend if possible.Sometimes if i get an idea, it is better to write at the moment if you are free. 

  • Isolation Transformers

    I want to say just thanks for such a special post.

  • Paul L

    this is obviously way late, but since I just came across your blog, thought I’d contribute my thoughts for anyone else just reading through the comments.

    name is Paul L, I run a blog called 

    i used to post a lot more frequently but because I have a lot of commitments outside of the workplace that takes up most of my time, I can only post as I find little bits of time here and there. Often I would spend 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there and after a while I’ll finally get a post up. Unfortunately the posts have been erratic, but it is what it is for the time being.

  • The JackB

    I post Monday-Friday and often include one or two over the weekend. That is on my main blog (

    I have a few others that I post on but it is kind of sporadic.

  • Waterford crystal

    Hello Ingrid! i completely agree with you.A blogger should be able to create an engaging content for the target audience. Blogger needs to make sure that the basic idea of the content is easily understood by human visitors. Thanks

  • Christian Hollingsworth

    Hey Ingrid. You know, I’ve been working through the mess recently of trying to figure out how often I’d like to blog. I’ve decided to cut back officially. I was blogging once a day for the past few months, and it took a toll! It’s hard work for sure!

    Now, I’m sticking to a Monday/Thursday schedule of blogging; and then maybe a few mixed in here and there if needed. So two a week, plus any extras I want to conjure up!

    Hi Griddy

    I came across your blog today after reading the comments you made at Neil Patels blog. I enjoyed reading your post and your writing style hence the reason I am here.

    I reside in the beautiful pacific ocean of Hamilton, New Zealand. I have been working on my blog for the last 5 months of adding content and learning from blogging Gurus such as yourself. I say that because of how you have formatted your blog and the hundreds of comments. You’ve got to be up there with the top Gurus? Well, thats my assumption.

    I’ll be popping over here to your blog to learn from your post. I notice you also write content. Please let me know how much you charge for 1000 word articles on Internet Marketing.

    Thank you again Griddy


  • Fast Printing

    I have two hobbies, first one is screenwriting and second one is blogging. Only one of them I have to do as both of them don`t go with eac other. So wanna do screen-writing but blogging is always in my mind and it disturbs me everywhere. I can not forget creating sites but i want to forget. PLease help me. How can i break my habit and how can i take this thought out of my mind ? Please help. Thanks

    • Anonymous

      Hi, I can understand where you’re coming from since I also have the hobbies of screenwriting and blogging, and yes, it can sometimes be hard to balance! But, the nice thing is that since they are hobbies, there is no reason to have to choose – if blogging is on your mind so much no matter what you do, that is your passion speaking up. I have to disagree that they do not go with each other – they are both writing (even if in different forms), and as a writer, it is always a great idea to keep writing on any platform you can – it will only help you hone your skills. And, if you absolutely feel as though you need to choose one in order to focus your attention, why not blog about writing screenplays, or write a screenplay where the main character is a blogger? This way you are incorporating both hobbies that you love. Just some suggestions…I hope this helps!

  • Waterford crystal

    I want my blog,to be a forum for the important issues of today including health-care,housing, social justice, right livelihood. How do I let people know this blog exists? I’m new at this and simple suggestions are best but all suggestions are welcome.

  • WebMechanix

    Ingriddd.. I found you through Mark Aaron Murnahan and though this was an awesome idea. So, hello! My name is Arsham Mirshah, I’m a parter at WebMechanix Internet Marketing & SEO ( —

    We are a small shop of 8 people.. but our blog posting schedule is pretty neat: Someone has to blog every Monday and Friday. So it might be my turn this Friday, but then I don’t have to blog again for 4 weeks (cuz we blog twice a week and have 8 people.. like that math?).

    What’s interesting is that we always end up publishing before we are set to because we have an idea for a post and we can’t wait.. makes for a updated blog :)

    Good luck & have fun putting together The Ultimate Guide To Blog Posting Schedule 😉 — ps, you’re pretty.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Arsham,
      Thanks for dropping by – I’m glad Mark pointed you in my direction :).

      Thanks for leaving your information.
      Sounds like you guys have it all figured out :). Good for you.
      Hope to see you around these parts more often.

      Happy Sunday

      PS – thanks for that sweet compliment :)).

    Hi, Griddy. I just discovered your blog today and haven’t seen you commenting over in mine, so I’m pretty sure you don’t know me. (Unless maybe you saw me in Who’s Who of American Women, The Millenium Edition. No, I’m not a woman, but they jumped to conclusions based on my name, and I let them do it.) I tweeted and stumbled this article and am here to give you our publishing schedule.

    Name: Allison A. Bailes III, PhD
    Blog: Energy Vanguard Blog
    Location: Decatur, Georgia
    Theme: Building science, home energy ratings, heating and cooling, green building, and similar topics
    Publishing schecule: We publish an average of about 3 posts a week. I write most of the articles, but the architect dude here writes some, too, and we have the occasional guest post. We almost always publish Monday through Friday and try to get them out by 7 am Eastern time. Occasionally they’re a bit later than that.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Allison,
      I’m glad you stopped by and introduced yourself. And you’re right – before I had read your comment here, I wans’t familiar with your blog. But I am now and I look forward to visiting it whenever I get the chance.

      As for your WWofAW story – I couldn’t stop laughing LOL! That is truly priceless – but hey – I think you did well by just letting them come to conclusions for themselves. I mean heck, going that little extra step to look at your profile picture and decide for themselves was a bit hard I suppose ;).

      Thanks for leaving your info.
      Happy to include you here.
      Hope to see you around these parts more often.

  • Peggy Baron

    Hi Ingrid,
    I’m a little slow, but after seeing Nitty this and Griddy that ALL OVER the blogosphere, I’ve finally made it here to see what all the fuss is about. You got STYLE girl! Or should I say – Ingrid consistently serves up a valuable main course with some style on the side. 😉

    I’d love to be in your Mega Guide.

    Your name – Peggy Baron
    Your blog’s name – Peggy Baron’s IM Blog
    Your blog’s direct URL –
    Your tagline if you have one – Adventures in Internet Marketing
    RT this post if you didn’t already – Ok!


    • Peggy Baron

      Forgot to mention… I try to post on Mondays, but sometimes it’s Tuesdays.

      • Ingrid Abboud

        Got it :)! Thanks!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Peggy,

      It’s actually me who’s slow in replying to the comments on this post :)! My apologies.
      Great of you to stop by and share your info for the guide. I also hope you like what you see here – I would hate to disappoint all the nittyGriddy talk you’ve been hearing hahaha. Unless if’s bad of course lol.

      Thanks for making your info so clear. Appreciated :).
      Have a good weekend and I hope to see you here more often.

    1.Hi, I’m Steve Byers and I blog for my company EnergyLogic. I write about energy biz related themes primarily, with a focus on the business end of this industry. I do wander afield from that now and then. This is the direct link:

    2. I don’t publish on a hard schedule, but I generally post on Monday morning. I try to post at least twice per week. I won’t post if I don’t have anything to say, but that hasn’t happened yet!

    3. I’ve Rt’d, posted to FB and Liked this on FB.

    Many thanks and good luck! Just new to your blog, but already enjoying your work. Perhaps I’ll send you some “Shit that I hear”!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Steve,

      Thanks so much for leaving your information and for sharing this post.
      I’m glad you like what you see here so far. Hope to have you back more often.

    Hi! My name is Alessandra (nickname: Ali). It’s my first time commenting on your blog.

    1.) My blog is called Live For the Season, you can find it at It’s a lifestyle blog that is all about getting the most out of life through the seasons. It features recipes, DIY projects, home decor, and inspiration, among other things, and I also focus on keeping these things simple and realistic so we can all enjoy them with our busy lifestyles.

    2.) I try to post to my blog twice a week, although I’m still working on solidifying a schedule. Once a week, for sure. Mondays I usually post a Meatless Monday recipe, and at some point later in the week I will post something else – a DIY project with how-to directions, home decor ideas, gardening experiences and how-to, or something funny and/or inspirational. Again, it is usually based on the seasons, so around the holidays I’ll have holiday DIY and decorating, in the spring I’ll have simple recipes…you get the idea.

    3.) I found your blog through someone in my Twitter network, and as of right now I have followed you on Twitter, “liked” you on facebook, RT’ed it already, and plan to share it within my own networks.

    4.) As a title idea for you: how about, “Blog Blast”? Also, “Big Ass Blog Blast”, “Schedules here for Blogosphere”, “Bloggers Posting Bizarre”….I’ll let you know if I come up with anything else 😉


    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Ali,
      Thanks for dropping by and sharing your info. Awesome of you to take a shot at the names and LOL for the Big Ass Blog Blast ;).

      Some really interesting articles on your blog :). Do you have a tag line? I’m trying to include one for each blog if they have one and since you didn’t mention yours and I can’t find it on your blog I was wondering if you had one or not. I’m trying to keep this guide as simple as possible with just the main info for folks to have. So if you do – let me know asap as this guide is scheduled to come out this week unless otherwise noted. You should also be notified of this reply.

      I’m gonna’ put you down for Monday’s for sure as well as no set schedule.

      Thanks again for that lovely introduction. I look forward to reading more of your stuff and to hopefully seeing you around these parts more often.

      Happy Sunday

        Hi Ingrid! I can’t believe I am just seeing this now, it’s been a crazy week and I think this got lost in the shuffle somehow. Anyway,if it is not too late I wanted to give you my tag line for – it is a quote by Henry David Thoreau: “Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit.” If that is too long to include I can work on a shorter one. Hope this helps! Good luck on the guide, and glad you liked the Big Ass Blog Blast LOL 😉

        • Ingrid Abboud

          Hi Ali,

          Thanks for coming although I’m sorry to say that the guide has already been published :(. I would have loved to include and I did look for a specific tagline on your blog but unfortunately couldn’t find one.

          Anyhow you can download the guide from Wednesday’s Bring IT! post. Hope you find it useful.

          Have a great long weekend.

    Your full name – Marlee Ward
    Your blog’s name – Metamorphoself
    Your blog’s direct URL –
    Your blog’s tagline if it has one – Helping You Unlock The Entrepreneur Within
    The days you publish new posts – I aim for Tuesdays, but life happens and then I show up late or give you a double dose!

    I tweeted this post twice, and I’ll aim for thrice. Plus I gave it a little Facebook love.
    Thanks for the opportunity to be included Griddy!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Marlee,

      Thanks so much for keeping the info clear :). Appreciated!
      I will put you in for Tuesdays then.

      Have a good weekend.

  • Laurie Hurley

    Hello! This is not my first time commenting on your blog but I found this post via Twitter. I blog always on Mondays ‘cuz I participate in BloggerMonday w/@AnnEvanston. I am a blogging coach for the Social Networking Coaching Club, so I better be blogging, huh? So, Monday for sure and I am shooting for Thursday, too.

    My blog is

    I blog about the in-home tutoring industry, entrepreneurial pursuits, special needs kids, WAHMs and teenagers. I also share alot about who I am and what goes on behind closed doors in a family with a high-maintenance special needs kid and an over-achieving, driven, perfectionist teenager, a husband of 19 years, our two dogs and three cats.

    Getting ready to go and “share” now!
    Thanks for putting this together and I’ll get the word out as best I can.

      Hey Laurie,

      Nice to have you back here.
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your info.
      What you do and blog about sounds so interesting and good on you for being so passionate and dedicated to all these important causes. Respect.

      Hope this guide comes in handy for you.
      I’m trying to include the taglines of each blog to make it easy on folks and I’m over at yours now but don’t see one. Do you have a specific one you’d like me to include?
      Please do let me know as I’d love to have it if you do.
      Thanks again.
      Happy Sunday to you and your family.

      • Laurie Hurley

        HI I don’t really have a tag line, – I usually say: “WAHM, Tutor Broker, Blogging Coach, Witty Networking Queen”

        Hope that helps! thanks so much!

        • Ingrid Abboud

          Great Laurie – thanks so much for coming back and letting me know :)))!

    Hi, I found you because someone tweeted about this. I have looked around and like what I see here.
    As a new blogger, I am always looking to expand both my reading and readership. I currently don’t have a set schedule, but I try to post at least two or three times a week.
    I will definitely tweet about this
    Steve aka @fathernorest

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Steve,
      Thanks for dropping by – glad you like what you see.
      Since you missed to leave me some of the information I asked for – I’m presuming the following because I took a minute to look at your blog.

      – blogs name – Father No Rest
      – blogs tagline – this father may know best, but he gets no rest
      – your full name – steve ???

      That’s how the information will go as if you don’t come back to let me know otherwise.
      Thanks a lot.

  • Memoirs of a Single Dad

    Hi Ingrid,

    My name is Daniel and I run I honestly don’t remember how I found your site. Likely blog skipping along the many that I try to read daily. My (loose) posting schedule is:

    Mondays – Dating/Relationship post
    Tuesdays or Wednesdays – Parenting post
    Friday – Technology post

    But all days are fair game – like Rob said, as inspiration strikes.

    I will be Tweeting this page along with the #blogChat hashtag to hopefully send more your way! Great idea!


    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Daniel,

      Good to have you on board.
      Thanks for leaving your information.
      Blog skipping is probably how you got here – either way – I’m happy you made it over :).

      Thanks a lot for sharing.
      Happy weekend.

      PS – Is “responsibility is sexy” your tagline? If so – let me know and I will include it. If I don’t hear back from you – then I will presume it’s not and therefore not put it.

  • Christina Pappas

    Hi Griddy!

    Wow! Lots of creative, interesting blog posts I am reading lately. Seems to be the overall theme is to stimulate conversation and what better way to do it than to help people 1) talk about themselves or at least give them a reason to and 2) make our lives easier by putting together this awesome list.

    So my blog over at Zmags lives at and I post (and by post I mean, my go-live, everyone can see it, start reading it and passing it around date) Mon, Tues and Wed every week and on Fridays I put together a top 5 hot news items post. Thanks for considering to add my to your super fradulous blog book!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      hey Christina,
      Great to see you here :).
      Thanks so much for leaving your info. I’m glad you like this idea – I’m trying to keep it as simple and basic as possible so it’s easy to refer to. So there will only be the few main categories that I mentioned – name, blog name, url, tagline, schedule days.

      You didn’t mention your tag line so I’m presuming it’s Read On.
      Happy to have you in here.

      Enjoy your Sunday.

      • Christina Pappas

        Hi Ingrid,

        We dont have a tagline and actually in the process of formally dropping ‘Read On’. Is it ok to go without one for now? Cheers!~

    Is this really my first time commenting in the month of April? Oh good golly gee whiz. Ah, but you do know my reasons, so I’ll save the apologies.

    How could I have missed such a tremendous opportunity… well it’s Monday, 4/11 or 11/4 depending on your geo-local, so I guess I didn’t.

    I’d be flattered and honored to be included on such a list, and I promise I’ll be a medalist again soon.

    Much love!!
