    After writing a large story the post comletly disapeared after clicking the ‘save and continue editing’ button. Instead of the preview I got the login page. After loging in again, the post reverted to the original I wrote a few days ago. So NO autosave…

    Does this mean that if we lose posts in future we can email and have them restored??

    No – it means if you email me immediately with enough details I will look. I can’t promise anything.

    But I NEED details. Something like “My post has gone” is useless to me.

    That’s really good service from podz for a free blog! Can it, will it continue? [Exclamation word!], I would’ve thought that it was possible to compose off-line and save; and that that would be the way to go [ in future at least].

    I compose in the text box here on WordPress, but before I hit Publish I copy everything to my clipboard. For one thing, there is or was a bug that sometimes meant that you couldn’t publish unless everything in the box was selected, and this gets around that. For another, it means you never lose your post; this keeps even the formatting, although not the links. It’s a good practice to get into.

    @ podz
    I’m glad you clarified that you need details – as many as possible and delivered as soon as possible. That’s an important thing to know. Hopefully I’ll never need this service because I use an off-line editor.

    @everyone
    raincoaster has mentioned one way to back-up your blog posts and I have another. BlogDesk is one of the free off-line editors that are available from the web. It’s easy to use and using it means you always have a back-up copy of your blog posts.
