Blogger.com, Please Don't

Anyone using Blogger.com might have noticed the new "recover post" link that was created to be helpful. You type something, somehow it disappears, you click on "Recover post," and if you're lucky, the lost text comes back. Well, ever since this oh-so helpful new feature was added, I've lost text, big chunks of it, which never came back. If you don't know, let me warn you: clicking anywhere on the toolbar--even, say, near the "Preview" link--could make your draft revert to the last saved version. I don't know why the link is so darn...is sensitive the right word? But, this means that accidentally clicking on the toolbar while you're still typing a draft could cause the most recent portion of it to vanish. If this happens to you, don't panic. I discovered that all you have to do is click anywhere on the text box, and then press the control key and Z at the same time (this is the undo command in MS Word). Your erased text should reappear.

As much as I appreciate the effort, sometimes I get scared when Blogger.com tries new things.

I've learned my lesson a long time ago and type up the text in Word first and the paste into blogger. Saves a lot of anxiety.
