Tonight I was working on a new page for the blog - one that would give new readers a quick overview of 'how we got here'. I had typed HEAPS of information about our story from the beginning, and about Ashlea's diagnoses - complete with links and references. I had been working on this page for an hour and a half AT LEAST. And then....
Then I went to highlight something and delete it. Except that I accidentally highlighted ALL the text. And deleted it. Not deliberately - I was meaning to quickly delete a line of text but accidentally got the lot.
And what did blogger do? The very second that I lost it all - before I had the chance to quit and hopefully revert to a previously saved version, it saved my work. Saved my new work of nothing. I have spent nearly two hours tonight working on a big pile of nothing.
Let this be a cautionary tale to all you bloggers out there!!
The moral to the tale? Compose long posts in a proper text editor. One that has an undo button. I know - I should know better.
