The Best Times to do What???

Now that I have a publisher to do all the non-writing work involving my books, I have a confession to make--I spend a lot less time online than I probably should. I had a blog post planned for Tuesday, for example, that still isn't finished. But maybe I shouldn't be so lazy....

I'm going to try a little experiment. I saw a segment on Today last week about the best times to post on various social networking sites. Intrigued, I got online and did a little research. I found the chart below in an article at AdWeek. It's geared to business, sure--but as an author trying to sell books, I find myself wondering if it might be effective in selling books as well....

Crap! It's a lot smaller than it is on their page!

Anyway, I'm going to try posting at these times on Twitter, Facebook and Google + don't use the others) for a month and see what happens....


  1. I can't read the times. Oh, well. I am not going to worry about it.

  2. Eve: I don't think they have prime times for blogs....

    William: It'll be interesting (maybe) to see if there's really anything to it. I do know there are high traffic times for each site. And when I was doing free book promos, some days were better than others for getting noticed.

    Mari: I know. It's smaller than it was on the original article--but if you get curious enough, you can see it by using the link.

  3. Thank you for the chart. I'll try to find it on-line so I can read it. But it was nice of you to let us know about it.

  4. It will be interesting to see what happens. Good luck, Norma!

  5. It is way too much work for me.
    I would think that the best times to post would be a business break time and lunch ? but you would have to factor in time zones ?
    Ouch I am getting a headache just thinking about this.
    But if anyone can figure this out it would be you.

    cheers, parsnip

  6. Good luck with your new plan. Yours is the third blogger that wrote about times.

  7. Looks like one o'clock is prime time all round Norma :) would that be am or pm ?
