    I wrote a very lengthy and in depth artical on books and study. The blog only published 1/4 of the written work. Why did this happen and what do I need to adjust so that it wont happen again?
    Blog url: http://blockt.wordpress.com/

  2. If you created your post on your own blog in the dashboard http://blockt.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php and not on wordpress.com's home page http://wordpress.com/#!/post/ then you may be able to recover it. However, if you created it on the wordpress.com home page it's gone and cannot be recovered.

    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
