Webmasters are staying around the globe where time zone is not same for all. Suppose I am living is Bangladesh and my time zone is +6 that means for finding Bangladeshi time you have to add extra 6 hour from your country’s default time zone. There are often required time because many visitors want to interact with webmaster through chatting service or Skype but they don’t know what the time is right now in webmasters country. Beside of this mostly required for scheduled post creation.
Suppose you will go for vacation for few days where you don’t have access to the Internet or you don’t have time for making post on your WordPress blog then you must use scheduled post feature. Under scheduled post you can make post right now and set the time when to publish and according to your blog timezone your post will be publish on scheduled time automatically.
