    Hi, I just wrote my first post. I could see wordpress automatically saving it as a draft as I went along. Then my battery ran out on my laptop!

    I've logged back in but cant see where the draft would be saved? How do It get to drafts from the dashboard?

    The blog I need help with is loveintheclouds.wordpress.com.

  2. Oh no! That sounds like very bad news.
    If the post was created on the dashboard of your own blog at Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New then you ought to be able to recover a lost post or page from revisions if needs be.

    (If you are referring to a Page then see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-revisions/)

    I recommend:
    Always create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    Always allow pages to fully load before clicking any other links.
    Use an offline blog editor so you have backups on your own computer http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/
