I think Blogger is haunted...

I couldn't get on Blogger for about a day and a half and when I returned, the recent Pantry post was gone.

I had started it earlier in the week and saved in draft to add a few paragraphs.  Instead of the published post, the draft now shows up in the list of posts as it was written earlier... without the additional paragraphs... as if there was never the final published post!

I've had Blogger do some strange things before but never this.  Fortunately, I have the original post that I can restore and republish (hopefully tomorrow) since I have a copy sent to me through e-mail subscription.

Speaking of the subscription... an old post came through on the subscription e-mail today!  A post from weeks and weeks ago.  Did anyone else who subscribes through e-mail get that one?

NOTE:  I went to Known Issues for Blogger and they say the missing blog posts will be restored... they had to temporarily take off all blog posts published after a certain time.  That still doesn't explained the old blog post being sent to those who subscribe.  Computers...

Blogger obviously had serious problems. I'm thinking things will sort out and we'll be fine (and maybe BETTER than before).

It's a little confusing isn't it. Some old threads are showing up in my new posts to read. However I am thankful it's back up and it's free. Hopefully it will all be corrected before too long. Hugs

Yes, I got the old post. I figured it was a Blogger hiccup (or else a Yahoo hiccup).

Yes, an old post of mine was sent out today. Glad to hear it happened to someone else!

Many strange things going on over the past 24 hours. Often when I commented yesterday, I turned up as "dunn" instead of "vee." That was strange. Just now I found that my sidebar had reverted back to a former incarnation. I haven't noticed the things you've mentioned.

It isn't just your blog, either. Half the posts marked as new on my google reader are old, too; not as old as the one of yours that showed up in my e-mail, but they were posts I had already read.

All the blogspot blogs I read were down today, and though back, everyone seems to have lost their thursday post....I'm sad about your, Brenda. It was really great.

My answer to those who object to a blog that talks about tough times is,"You don't have to read it". I appreciate your candid expression of how life can be sometimes difficult, but we can still find joy every day in simple things. If a bag of food from a food pantry can help you in these hard economic times, it's wonderful. Why do some people think that one must be totally desperate to accept a little help? Keep blogging as you wish. It reminds all of us that it is no shame to accept a little help once in awhile.

I saw that people were having trouble with Blogger this past week. I got on the other evening and it was in 'read only' mode - I couldn't do any commenting.

Yes, there's definitely something not quite right going on!
I got the post you mentioned, and I also got another even stranger onre through from another blog which I subscribe to.
Their post wished me "Happy St.Patrick's Day!!
