    It’s a little disconcerting, when editing my WordPress.com pages, to be just a keystroke away from publishing an unintended update, or deleting a whole lot of hard work.

    Does the WordPress.com environment provide a sandbox for editing and saving partially-edited work – safely and very explicitly buffered from my live site files? Especially when making significant changes, how do you manage your editing workflow to avoid inadvertent (partial/incomplete) updates and unintended deletions?

    If it matters, I’m using the TwentyTen theme.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is runbarefootrunhealthy.com.

    Lately I have had the disappearing text problem and it has annoyed me. I click “save” when creating a draft in the editor frequently. Then the autosave kicks in and creates either posts or page revcisions.

    However, best of all is to use an offline blog editor and popublish to your blog from it. Then a s a bonus you will have a backup of every posts and page on your own computer.

    I’m so sorry about the spelling errors. I forgot to spellcheck before clicking submit and I’m visually challenged. :(
