    I typed a post this morning and I know it was seen because someone liked it and commented on it. But, now when I try to find it, it either doesn't appear or most of the words are gone. When I look in my dashboard, it is there as a draft, but I edited it 3 times and saved it 3 times and tried to publish it 3 times. By the way, every time I go back, my edits did not save. What's going on?

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

    Please be sure to upgrade your browser version here http://browsehappy.com first.

    You may be able to recover an earlier post revision. 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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-revisions/

    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

    Did you create your post on the dashboard of your own blog?
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or did you create your post on the front page of WordPress.com?
    http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    Advice:
    Create your posts on the dashboard of your own blog
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New

    Or use an offline blog editor so you have backups on your own computer http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/

    Thanks for your help. It worked and from now on I'll publish right from my dashboard. Have a great night.
