Indeed I guess this should be in my list of WordPress complications!
One day I was posting something… as usual… and when after some googling – my favourite activity lol! – I decided to check my post in its final state… WordPress said that it got ERROR 404!!! And as internet nerds you all know what this means!! (it means: my post cannot be found!)
For an instant I thought it was like the other day when my post got suddenly blank after having written it for 45 mins! But it was not this kind of complication. It was fortunately less serious.
What really happened: When WordPress told me “Congrats! This is your # post! ****! This post has # words.”, in fact he was LYING! It had been too lazy to publish my post. Therefore my post just stayed where it has always been: in the drafts! So I just reclick the PUBLISH button and this time I checked immediately whether it’s been GENUINELY posted. Ouf! It was! yay!
Now I click on “View Post” each time I publish a post. In case my readers got a mail about a post that has never been.
I guess most of you did experience this… just that sometimes you don’t bother check your posts and you think they’re being read when they’re NOT! That’s how people end up complaining about “Oh I’ve got so few readers!” lol no the last part was just kidding ;D

Well… I am sorry this happened to you, however my humble opinion is that WordPress is still no.1 blogger service out there. Of course accidents will happen, but they try to fix each problem as is reported. I know that for fact because I’ve had several sites powered with WordPress.
Wise thing to do would be to save your drafts each 10 minutes, or write the actual blog post in Notepad and then copy / paste it to WordPress.
Yes of course. Thanks for the tip! 🙂
aww…so sorry about that…you know, in my case whenever I reply on my reader’s comment and when I post, the internet suddenly starts to fail you…and BOOM! all the long comments, G-O-N-E!! so, I feel you, sis!!
