Help! Draft post disappeared?
Hi, I started writing some blog posts earlier this year to try and get ahead and have a few blogs ready to be released when I launch my site to my already established audience (elsewhere). I wrote up 4 drafts before starting a new job in my personal life and taking a break for a while due to lack of time. Well today I returned to continue working on drafts and found one of my drafts (the one I worked the hardest and longest on, 2 whole straight days of research and writing!) has vanished! I didnt delete it or schedule it to be deleted and I forgot to back it up :( Is there anyway I can get it back? Did it automatically expire? I really cant imagine trying to rewrite the whole thing. Thanks in advance!
The blog I need help with is sillytoadgirl.wordpress.com.
The Admin login link to the dashboard of that site is

The saved draft pages are found at
