I've blocked overnight and then carried out the rest of the procedures
the following day.  However, I prefer to block on the day of the transfer
for 30 - 60 minutes and then incubate in primary antibody overnight.  The 
next day I wash and do the secondary antibody incubation and detection.
This latter method gives me the best results.
