About six months ago, I wrote a fairly long post and decided to save it as a draft. When I went to the Edit Post area, it wasn't there. (INSERT STREAM OF CUSS WORDS HERE.) I tried to save a few more posts as drafts and they weren't there either.
From time to time over the last six months, I have fiddled with it and written Blogger and searched Blogger Help and Googled the problem but to no avail. Last night, I Googled it again and there was a vague comment on a message board about not being able to save to draft in blogger and fixing the problem using a *drop down menu.*
I went back to the Edit Post area and, sure enough, there is a drop down menu at the top of the page which you can choose to view Everything, Drafts or Current. For some reason, my drop down menu was set on Current. I selected Everything and, by God, there was the draft of the original long post I thought I had lost and all of the experimental drafts I had created over the last six months.
So, if you're having the same problem, "You're welcome."
