It seems like there's always something irritating that has to be taken care of. Some piece of plumbing that needs to be fixed, or a light switch that needs replacing. Or, in this care, something is wrong with my blog.
Years ago, when I had the old one, I had some kind of problem. I can't remember what it was now, and it wasn't major. Other people told me I should switch to Word Press, and I thought about it but I didn't want to pay a fee every month, and more important I didn't know how to use Word Press. I am not a computer genius and trying to learn a new program was daunting. So I stayed with Blogger when I started this one.
From time to time people would make comments that turned up in the email, but not on the blog. They weren't in the spam filter, and I would try to do a cut and paste with the email and put the comment in that way.
Now, I'm losing whole posts. It became noticeable last week and undeniable last night. It's just vaguely possible that I might accidentally delete a post. I always write them, publish them, then rewrite them or tone them up. I could mess up while doing that. But I did not accidentally delete two posts.
I know there is the possibility of hacking but it seems unlikely to me. There are blogs that are a lot more vitriolic than mine, and nobody seems to bother them. The first thing that I thought of when this was suggested was some Islamic hacker, but trying to be dispassionate, I doubt it. If they spent all their time messing up blogs that made anti World Caliphate postings, they wouldn't have time to coordinate setting off explosions in Pakistani churches or gunning down 14 year old girls they didn't like. So I doubt that is it.
At any rate, I don't know what to do about it except just keep on and see if it happens again. If it does, I will close this particular blog down and get a Word Press blog. Not that that would help if it really is a hacker, because they would just follow me. But I lean towards a technical explanation and that would settle that.
