Disappearing Posts

April 14th, 2013 at 08:48 am

The problem with blog posts vanishing when I go to post has become pretty frustrating. It has happened to several of my posts now, and it always seems to be the ones that are lengthy and that I have put a lot of thought in to. Yesterday I wrote one about the ability to think in an abstract way as it relates to personal finance. I may re-do it later if I can find the motivation to overcome my disappointment that it went *poof* The problem is that re-written blog posts never seem to be as good as the original.

I really do want to keep up my blog. I must remember to compose in a Word document and then copy and paste, so that my work isn't lost.

I made the mistake of briefly venturing back over to the SA Forums but was reminded pretty quickly why in the past I have steered away from there. There is one poster whose grandiosity is, frankly, rather frightening to me.

    Also, if you just select all and hit ctrl-C after you're done writing, before you post, you can just paste it into a new entry if it disappears. I've gotten into the habit of doing with all my posts, even the small ones, so I never lose any.

    I had that happen to me too! I literally spent an hr making a post about a massive shopping trip and clicked save and it went byebye! I was so disapointed I gave up on it for the day. The next time I did copy and paste it and it did it again, so I was so glad I had done it that way so I could just copy/paste it in and hit save rather then having all my work gone. Don't know why that is happening but VERY frustrating!

    It happens to me frequently as well. I have gotten into the habit of clicking "save as draft" after every few sentences.

    Yes, I'm doing the copy and paste, too. It really should be fixed.

    I have noticed this has become a huge issue as well. A lot of times I can click the back button and hit the post button again and it will post but the copying is a lot safer method of backing it up.
