When I say "It Cant Happen To Me"

Last Update: December 09, 2021

What a rookie mistake? It`s 3 am as I write this "I know, I know, I'm free tomorrow and I`ve always been a night owl"

So after spending more than 4 hours writing a post, I did the unthinkable, something that mostly happens to beginners. I wrote, published then I thought" I might need one more image"

I create an image in Canva and insert it, then I feel it`s not sitting right, so I click back and just like switching off a light, most of my post is gone.

It`s crazy because it`s not in my drafts and I feel so stupid now,it`s not saved anywhere(at least I can`t find it) I stopped writing in Docs so everything is done in WP = there is no draft.

Now I know, I'm too tired to deal with this now, I should have waited until tomorrow.

Hi Roamy,

So sorry about that. I use Google doc to write. It automatically save your work.

After writing on Google doc, you can copy and paste on any platform where you want it.

That way you will not loose your work, you do not need to worry about saving or deleting your work, and it is free.

Hope this helps

I had some serious issues with my sites and (it`s a lot of things really) but somehow if I took an article from Google docs and put it in WP, everything came out as one long block of paragraph.
I up to now could not 100% figure out how this happened and until I can find a solution, everything is done directly in WP.
I`m even forced to go back to my old posts to create visible paragraphs and spaces.
But writing directly on WP,seem to solve the problem for now.

Check your bins to see if it's there

Well, Roamy, sometimes we all get in a hurry and do something we shouldn't have! It is because we are only human!
