  A blogger's Nightmare!

Saturday, September 27, 2008

i have been subscribed to a Blogger Help Group called "How Do I.." for about a year now and i only peek in once in a while. today, since there is nothing to do at work (well, im guessing the recession in the us econ is to be blamed ~ but thats another story tho).. i decided to go check on the recent queries of blogger users and see if i can help.

i found two horrifying situations today..

but let me ask you.. what's the most mortifying nightmare a blogger can have? i know you'd agree on me with this..

finding out that all your posts for more than a year have been deleted!!!

i've been blogging for almost 4 years now and if this happens to me i'd DIE! well ok that's exaggerated.. but if it cannot be recovered i just don't know what to do! what a waste of all those thoughts and ideas..

so now all my hopes are for raynie and fernando.. that they find a solution soon! nobody has replied to them at the forum yet. and i'd be on the lookout for any replies too.. (just in case something like this happens to me) *knock on wood.

i took screen shots of their messages:

OMFG!! Is it really possible to lose your blog and everything on it? according to Raynie she did not delete them and it's still searchable in the postings. so this is totally weird!

now im thinking if it shows on the google search it has got to do something with the coding platform.. and im not used to the xml template, reason why i reverted all my blogs to the older version. so i hope this would never happen to me..

the second one where the owner, fernando, admits it was deleted by accident:

they have tried to contact blogger but there is no word yet if blogger replied. so if anyone out there knows any solution please reply to the forum: Raynie and Fernando

I'm anxious to see the solution.

Last year my site was hacked into and I lost over 2 years of my writings and it took me almost an entire year to get started again. My situation was different because my site was hacked and the hacker destroyed my site code and deleted all my content.

So maybe blogger backs up their databases and can fix this for them.

yeah me too im curious.. coz its always better to know what to do just in case it happens to you.. but sadly until now, nobody has replied to their post yet and their blogs are still not working.

i'll keep this post updated in case there will be any reply.

UPDATE: i just checked now and both Raynie and Fernando's blogs and they are now working. I left them a message on how they did it and still waiting for their reply.

Also, i found another thread in the forums where people lost their blogs Oct. 1. and now all of them are working.. so i am the lost one here! haha.. how did you all fix this????
