According to an April 2014 study from TrackMaven, bloggers were most likely to post their content on weekdays, with 87% of weekly blog content pushed out between Monday and Friday.

Broken down by day, blog content posted on both Saturdays and Sundays saw higher social share percentages than any weekday, indicating that marketers posting to blogs could get a bigger bang for their buck by publishing posts when readers have more time to read and share—on the weekends.
