Yes, depends on the platform.  Instagram, FB and Pinterest all have more appropriate times.  The pic below was posted a couple years ago by Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, ePRO, CRS, RCS-D and it does a good job of explaining it.

 

For AR the best times for comments are earlier in the morning, but who knows when the public will see it.  I've had 8 month old blogs viewed and lead to upcalls.

If you're writing an evergreen post to the public, the answer is YESTERDAY.  Just get it out there and let it get to work.

If your post's purpose is to get comments from other Rainers, what time do your followers read and comment?

IMHO:
Personally, I think the value of the content is more important than timing. The content is always there no matter when it's convenient for people to read it. The answer for social media is probably different.  I don't consider a blog social media, even though you want interaction.

Blogs are a long term investment.  It's necessary to build an archive.

Not late at night. That happens to be when most of my posts go out because of my time and schedule and they get far less activity on them than, say, mid-morning. I agree with Fred Griffin. -Kasey

Most of my AR posts are either early morning or late evening. Traffic and comments vary due to time zones and sometimes dribble in over a week or more so it's like trying to hit a moving target.

I don't really worry about time of day or day of week, I have gotten calls and business off posts (evergreen) that I wrote 6-7 years ago.

I know we're supposed to post at certain times but, I post when I have time!

Sometimes I will schedule posts for those high-volume times but, my data is not like others' so, I follow only my data, not that of anyone else.

For instance, my most visited time on my website is 10PM - 1AM! Several people with whom I work in a national marketing group have shared that their 'big' time on their WP sites are just after dinner and some during lunch. It's all what you find in your own reports that you should go by.

I've seen some of the different charts etc.. that specify times that are best to post... I'm sure there are some accuracy to them, however I think that as long as you make the blog posts, no matter what time you do them, you'll be ahead of 80% of the agents out there...

Most important thing is to actually Publish them, most people spend lots of time thinking about it and never do it so those who just publish them whenever have an advantage.
