70% of users say they read blogs in the morning.
But most users read blogs throughout the day, as well, not just one specific time.

THOUGHT: Blogs are one of the best vehicles for content marketing these days.
First, unlike social media, you own them. If you self-host them, you’ve got access to all your data all the time and are therefore not at the mercy of a Facebook or Twitter and their terms of service or service outages or whatever.
Second, done right, search engines love blogs.
Third, unlike, other social platforms, you have access to all the analytics for the traffic to and on your blog, so you can gain much deeper insights if you know what you’re looking for.
Some of that insight will be what content gets the most traction, when, among whom, and ultimately, why it gets traction. That in turn will help you learn what content performs the best for whatever purpose you need it to perform.
As I said before when discussing email dayparting; the aforementioned numbers can act as a guide but the most important thing to keep in mind is know your audience.
