New Blogger…Big Mistake

I have only been blogging for about 4 weeks. Not too bad so far, but the other night I made a fatal mistake. One of my most popular blogs, ” Couple FORGETS 3 year old in Airport: True Story” was accidentally deleted along with all the many comments I had received. In a panic, I searched and searched the forums for a way to UNDO what I had done. So I thought I would share my findings with all of you. You can retrieve the article by going to the cached page on google and cut and pasting it onto another post. Then edit the date of the post after it has been published. Unfortunately I can’t find a way to get any of the comments back, and it is really not getting the traffic it used to because it isn’t on my most popular titles browser. Anyway, If you delete an article…you can get it back, but like life…once you make a mistake, it will never be the same.
