  1. What the hell? I worked for an hour on a post, and when I went to post it and view it ALL OF MY FREAKING POST CONTENT WAS GONE. Zippo. There was freaking NOTHING IN THE POST CONTENT except the freaking title!! Is it because I changed the title after I finished writing it?? WHERE DID IT GO??

  2. The most recent post on your blog appears to be The emergency room-Not as exciting as I’d hoped September 1, 2012 at this link http://gloriouscliche.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/the-emergency-room-never-as-exciting-as-id-hoped/ Have you created another post following that one?

  3. If you use the dashboard post editor on your own your blog's dashboard, then a draft will be autosaved every two minutes.

    Go to Posts > All Posts, hover over the title of the post, click Edit and check the Post Revisions module for previous saved versions of the post.

    If you're not seeing the Revisions module while on the editor screen, click Screen Options (top right corner of your Admin page) http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ to activate it. Then select the post and page modules to include them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules Then you ought to be able to go here > Dashboard > All Posts > Posts and locate the post and recover it from post revisions.

    If you cannot locate the post for locating and restoring a post revision, and it's not in your Trash folder http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/ then you will not be able to recover it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash

    Advice:
    When you start a new post, add the title, set it to private and then publish it. When you are done with the post, set it back to publish and update it as justpi has said. The other choice is to get and use an offline blog client such as Windows Live Writer (Windows) or Ecto (Mac) and then everything is saved on your computer and when you are done with the post, you actually publish it directly from the blog client software. See here for offline blog editors so you don't have to go through this again http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc

  4. Yep, figured it out-- The window I was using wasn't saying anything about autosave while I was working, so I (like a dummy) thought it wasn't autosaving. But it was, so shortly after I posted this, I found the revisions option and got it all worked out. It was a long day and I suppose I over-reacted a bit... :)
