Blogger Stole My Memories!!!

I am SO SAD.

Yesterday when I was writing the Eagle Creek post, I tried to link back to the 2008 hikes I took on the same trail.

I searched through my archives, and...THEY'RE GONE!!

Everything before January 2009 seems to have been deleted from my blog. I started the posts back in 2007, I think. Did I miss something in the fine print somewhere? Should I have known better?

I thought those older posts would always be there. I thought I could use them as a kind of personal history. How can I save them? Does anyone know about this???

Kathy, it appears that Blogger might have had some problems with archived posts (I did a little searching) and they are working to restore things ASAP. Many people were having problems accessing past posts, not to mention comments that had been made but were not being posted to the system. I'd give it a few days and see if they return. I use wordpress for my personal blog, and everything I've written is archived and saved on their server. This might just be a technical error.

In the mean time, maybe you should create a system of periodically saving your posts to an external hard drive or other location. I was thinking that I ought to do such a thing as well!

Gotta love technology. Hang in there. Hopefully it will all reappear soon.

Hi Kathy! I just checked mine and they are there. I bet if you contact the Blogger help people you can get this resolved. Good luck!

Hey Mom,

That's a huge bummer. And really weird. I've been blogging since 2008 without any problems of that sort. Although I know if you delete pictures from your Picasa folder it deletes them from your blog.
