Blogger hates me

So, I had the second half of my dystopian post all ready to go, and then I tried to insert spoiler tags. In that moment, hitting ctrl+z somehow, instead of getting rid of the bad code I typed in, it deleted my entire post. While I was trying to figure out why the 'redo' button wasn't an option, Blogger helpfully saved my new, now empty post. And I was thoroughly screwed, because Blogger doesn't have a feature like wordpress does that allows you to undo the twenty most recent revisions you've made. And it doesn't have any other way to access old drafts.

I spent half an hour googling how to recover old drafts and attempting various methods before I acknowledged that the post was gone forever. And forgive me, but I just don't have it in me to retype the entire thing. Especially since I'm also supposed to be writing for Pyromancy tonight.

And all because I'd thought it would be a good idea to type my post in blogger and code as I go, especially since apparently it's a bad idea to copy a whole post from Word to blogger, because Word has a lot of weird html code that blogger doesn't like. Heaven forbid any software work together properly!

In conclusion, please enjoy this picture of ducklings. Hopefully I'll manage to get the post up next time.

  1. It's a very cute duckling picture Sabrina. Sorry about your blogger troubles. I've had that happen to me myself. I almost always do my post in Word now. I rarely have troubles. A smiley face turns into a J, but that's about all.


Got an opinion? Use it! Remember... be silly, be honest, and be nice/proofread.
