Automatically Publish with Current Date and Time Stamps
Before you begin to publish your blog posts, make sure your account has the correct time zone selected. Log into your Blogger account and click on Settings. Click on Formatting just under the Settings tab. Choose an option in the Date Header Format list as well as the Timestamp Format list if you want to change how the date and time blog published appear. Make sure your time zone is selected in the Time Zone list, changing it if necessary. Click the Save Settings button when you are finished.
Publishing a blog post automatically on Blogger is quite simple. Click on New Post. Enter a title for your blog post in the Title field. Compose your post and use either the formatting features on the toolbar to format your text, add links and insert pictures or go to the Edit HTML tab and use HTML to compose your post.
Once you are ready to publish your post, you can simply click the Publish Post button at the bottom of the new post form. This will publish your post instantly with the current date and time stamps. You can also click Preview if you would like to see how your post will appear before you publish it.
