- I tend to author my posts in a text program, like wordpad, and post them into a post.
- When an error has occurred in the past, I can usually press the "back arrow" button on the top of my web browser and get my text back. I copy the text and try again (see next point).
- When I go to publish, I always click on the Edit menu and click "Select All" to select my entire post, and then click on the Edit menu and click "Copy" to back up my text before publishing. If I lose it, I just paste my posts in.
- Blogger knows this has been a problem and is working on a "recover post" feature.
Updated 04/14/2005: Google has got the "recover post feature" working now.
