About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 49 years.

ACCIDENTS HAPPENS

Help, I accidentally deleted a whole section of my blog by trying to delete a photo that I wanted to annotate before putting it on my blog and poof, a whole section of my blog disappeared.



Yes, can you believe  this stupid photo of a coffee stain doodle on a piece of envelope is part of the reason that I lost a whole section of my blog, the other reason is that I clicked on delete.

Is it retrievable? I'm so computer illiterate. I would appreciate any help. I have a MacBook Pro computer.

I'm thinking that maybe I may just quit blogging altogether and get into something else like cleaning my  garage and basement.

Right now I'm not a happy camper.

  2. if you deleted a picasa web album (which is where blogger automatically stores your photos that you upload from your computer directly to your blog), then, no, you can't undo that. i did that once, and ended up having to restore all the photos i deleted from about 100 posts - manually loading them back into each post from my laptop.

    if you did something else, like deleting posts themselves, i'm not sure...

  3. i went back to several of your historical posts. i see lots of past years still in place, but it looks like all of 2014 is gone. i went to my reader and tried to pull up some more recent ones and it says they no longer exist. if you haven't done a back-up (extract) of your blog, i don't know if they can be restored from someplace else.

  4. Oh Julia...I wish I could help but I am clue-less when these things occur!!! Rats...is there a place on BlogSpot where there is a "help" section? Maybe someone there could tell you what to do to restore the items. Hugs, Sunnie

  5. Julia...did you google "how to restore deleted posts on BlogSpot"? that might help. S.

  6. Oh no! Sorry Julia but I agree with the last post and try google help. I'm sure others have done this and you can find some advice

  7. Try this, Julia ...

    Put cache:http://yourblog.blogspot.com in the address bar of your browser...make sure to substitute your blog name for yourblog in the url. If you know the specific url of your posts, you'll have more luck pulling up specific posts.

    Here's a website that might be helpful.... but yes... google and also check with Blogger help ...

    what a bummer!

  8. Good luck, Julia. I can offer absolutely no help! I am so challenged!!!
    Please don't quit blogging. Basements and garages are meant to be messy - speaking from experience :)

  10. I am so sorry, I think everyone has given you good advice. Please don't stop blogging, I love reading your posts and I love reading about what you do.
    I know it is very hard to loose what you have written and posted. In fact heartbreaking is the word.

  12. Glad you have some solutions and I hope it all comes back! Don't stop blogging! Do you want to hear all of your followers cry? Besides, do you really want to clean the garage and basement? I didn't think so! I hope you have a good week!

  13. I'm glad I kept reading the comments...and glad to hear that you found your posts! I'd be so upset, and I'm sorry for the trouble you've had. Thank goodness your son in law can help you! Please, keep on blogging. I enjoy reading! I also agree...basements and garages are meant to be messy! :)

  18. Don't you dare quite blogging :) that's an order Julia! We enjoy your blog too much. It's very frustrating when these things happen though. Have you found a solution yet?

  19. I wish I could help you! I am currently experiencing some difficulties here, myself! I'm not sure that cleaning the garage would bring me as much enjoyment as blogging.:-) I hope you don't stop blogging! I love reading what you post.

  23. Juila i know how you feel, but it is not a right way to put the blog and do other things. We can learn many things from the wrongs what we do So i know you will correct it and do blogging carefully again!

    Keep on tapping! on those key notes that form words! lol

  27. Oh Julia that is so frustrating - I'm also computer illiterate so I completely understand, I have no idea if you can retrieve your blog but please don't stop blogging - what I do to preserve my post is I book it - I use Book2Blog it's a website that puts your blog in a hard bound book - I do it yearly although lately I haven't been blogging as often so I'm afraid my book this year will be a slim one.

    Cute doodle by the way.
    Hang in there, your number one fan

  28. Yikes! I hope you got it all worked out. Here's a bit of a wake-up call: an estimated 50% of all hard drives will fail within the first four years. As the years increase, the probability goes up. What would you lose if your hard drive died today?

  29. I've had this problem, I naively erased some of my photos and found the whole of the posts with them on were gone.
    I know what you mean about not getting stuff done, these computers are deadly aren't they?

  30. OH MY Gosh I did not know that we could do that. How horrible but please please don't stop blogging. I have all but quit myself but I would miss you so much.
    Hang in there surely someone out here can help you. You know I know even less than you do about computers or I would come to your rescue.
    Hope to see another post of yours soon
    Love
