ARGH! I Deleted my Blog!

I am fairly new to my laptop. I got it from a family member, so I don’t know all the hidden keys or functions. I just love using the laptop. So, this morning, I am on a roll. I’ve started a blog and am feeling it. I’m writing and sharing, and really feeling it! I accidentally do something…don’t know what…and erase 100 or so of my last words. WHAT! I’m not in a word process document…there is no undo button! ARGH! I stop, gather my thoughts, and try to regain what I was sharing and begin again. I warm up to my thoughts, get excited about sharing, go deeper in my thoughts, I’m really cooking here, and then, I DO IT AGAIN! This time, I erase over 300 words! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING! Too many thoughts, too many emotions, too much sharing…I don’t know how to go back again. I have just dumped…shared some of my inner thoughts and feelings…only to accidentally wipe them off the screen like they had never been said. And the problem is…it is as if you were in mid-tirade about something heart-felt and someone interrupts you abruptly. It knocks the wind out of you, stops you cold, and you blink as if waking up from a dream. And the momentum is gone. Wow…deflated. I realize the first part was automatically saved, but the emotional, sharing of feelings and thoughts at the end? Poof! Gone! Vanished! Floating around in cyber space somewhere unknown, or banished to cyber hell for daring to make the attempt at verbalization. Sigh…okay…over now…better now…sigh…darn!

    There is an undo in WordPress. I didn’t spot it either until another blogger mentioned it. It’s on the second line of the formatting buttons, towards the right.
