Lost blogger post

Any other blogger-using readers had an embedded YouTube link eat an entire post? It happened to me last night, and the autosave function finalized the disappearance, so that the post on the Fed window and funds rate only included the title since I posted it Friday afternoon.

After rehashing everything I'd lost, albeit in a sloppier manner, I tested it again, backed up this time, and the same thing happened--the entire post vanished.

I use word (you can use any basic word processor) as a low tech backup. Cut and paste it there in HTML format and you won't have any more of those problems.

I generally do that. I need to make sure that I always do, without exception. It's very frustrating to try and rehash something that is several paragraphs long. It never seems to flow as well.
