    This is one of the features I like about wordpress. When I am out of town, I am doing this posting in the future.

    This particular feature of WordPress, when explained to clients, gets the loudest “aha’s” out of people. You can see the relief of knowing they can create content ahead of time and not have to worry about someone else in the office publishing it on time.
