Do I have full control over when my blog is published?

    I wasn’t prepared to publish my blog yet and I was surprised to find it was published even before I had put much information on it, so I felt that control was taken out of my hands. I will most likely use the blog at some point but I need to ensure that it will only be published when I am ready. Are there any comments on this situation?

    The blog I need help with is johnjamesoverton.wordpress.com.

    Yes, you can save a blog post as a draft, or even schedule it to be posted at a later date if you’d like. In the box at the top right of your screen while you’re editing a post, you can choose either option.

    Do be aware that scheduled posts do not publish until the first visitor to the site after the scheduled date and time triggers publication.
