The Blog Eating Beast Returns — Again!

The Bog Eating Beast ate three of my posts sometime at the end of last week: two of my A-to-Z posts (which will be re-posted as soon as I’m certain they’ll stay this time) and a small “grammar rant” about apostrophes. I don’t know exactly when they disappeared, because I wasn’t online much over the weekend, but I came back today and saw that these posts are just… gone.

I’d apologize for any inconvenience, but it’s actually WordPress’ (see what I did there?) fault, not mine.

Does anyone else have this problem sometimes? It has happened to my blog at least twice before, and the posts that disappear are always the most recent one plus one or two others.


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    I’ve never had that problem, but yikes! Makes me want to back up my whole blog right now. In fact, I think I will. 😦

    ” WordPress’ ” is making my brain gnaw and flip… now I want to know what your rant was. 😛

  2. I haven’t had a post disappear completely, but I’ve had some posts assume the “publish date” of whenever I first created the draft. The end result being that nobody saw them, as they were buried deep in the feeds.

Don't hold back -- tell me what you really think.
