I Wonder if I Should Be Worried……

I wrote a blog post for today about acronyms. Nothing scathingly important but it was kinda cute and silly. I dated it and set it up to go live at midnight like I do all my posts.

On Wednesday, for some reason, I decided to check what I had scheduled for the rest of the week….. aaaaaaand…….there was nothing there for today. There was a title and a post, dated and time stamped, ready to go except…..it was blank!


I checked again….….blank. I looked around. Maybe it was posted somewhere else, for another day or time? Nope, nothing.


I remember writing it. I remember editing it. I remember copying and pasting it from Word into Blogger….at least I THINK I do, lol. I must have….there IS a post titled and scheduled……but it’s blank…..

I look in my ‘used ideas’ folder…..nothing there. I look in my ‘ideas’ folder….nothing there. If it weren’t for the fact that there IS a pending post scheduled I would REALLY be worried that I’m losing my mind.

But where did it go?

AM I losing my mind? Did I forget to copy and paste the body of the post to Blogger? I find that hard to believe, after all, I did post the title and schedule it! But where the hell IS IT?

I look in the trash bin even though I empty it every day….I re-check my ‘stuff for my blog’ folder again……

It’s gone. Vanished. Nowhere to be found…….my amazingly witty musings lost forever…..hahahahaha….

Okay, so it wasn’t War and Peace……but it was chuckle worthy, if I do say so myself. But, honestly, that’s not really what’s bothering me. What’s more concerning is the fact that I don’t remember what I did with it! Did I really forget to paste it into the post??? Or did Blogger somehow screw something up and erase it?

I’m going with it being Bloggers screw up…….but you see my concern, right?????


  1. It’s Blogger. They are getting weirder by the day. I sometimes add vimeo clips, they are definitely in the post I write at the time > Saved > Schedule. Ha! when it Posts, NO video!!! Drives me NUTS.

  2. It comes to us all in the end😉

  3. I would have been irriated as well, Robin. It was probably a system hick-up though. :)

  4. Hmmm, a mystery. Did you look under Posts and then Drafts? If you started one, but didn't finish. Came back and started a new one. You would have 2 posts with the same title. Ask me how I know this? =^,.^=

  5. It’s that time of life where we worry about forgetting even more than we forget! Let’s just hope the real forgetting as a norm stays a blank page!

  6. Oh yes, I can see your concern ;-) It does sound a bit weird, but Blogger's done weird things in the past, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case here. I do hope you find it though, I love your chuckle stories :-)


I appreciate your comments!
