I sometimes schedule a blog for a future day/time. This could be to improve exposure. It could be that I've maxed my blogging points for the week so I'll kick the post to the next week. Sometimes, I write three blogs in a day and want to spread them out. Finally, I have recently learned that a blog written on Sunday gets almost no response so I should keep good blogs for the work week when people are active.

I do use both. I like to post in real time. But sometimes I know when a post needs to be published but I also know I won't be around a computer to do so. So then I use the delayed posting feature and cross my fingers that it works. :)

Auto post is usually broken.  For most things I post right away.  For some (like reblogs) I schedule in the future.  If it's Saturday or Sunday and I'm at my 10 blog cap, I schedule for Monday and cross my fingers that it works.

I've always posted in real time but would schedule one if it were time sensitive and now is not the right time.  Let's say I was going away for a month and wouldn't have access to the internet or didn't want to work and the 4th of July was coming up.  I'd then post it delay until around June 20th.

Most of my articles are "scheduled" for delayed posting.  I usually have a daily theme* plus random posts, so when I write an article I schedule it for the appropriate day.    I try not to post more than 10 blogs per week, so the overflow gets pushed out.  I tend to write in spurts, as time allows.  I don't think it is effective, from a readership point of view, to post a batch.    I have two main reasons for the 10 blog number: 1) I think 10 blogs a week is plenty to post and 2) We only get points for 10 per week... so I like to carryover. 

* The daily theme has taken a back seat until I get caught up on vacation and contest posts.

Mostly, we post in real time. Occassionally, when I'm on a roll and churned out 3-4 posts at a time, I'm more likely to schedule them to post in the future. I don't want to clog the blog rolls, for one, and I find that my blog posts get more attention when they're published in the morning than in the afternoon.
