This morning I posted once with no problems, using Firefox. The second time I tried to post, I got a message "The post you are looking for cannot be found." I opend IE and tried posting there, and the post was published. However, it did not appear on my dashboard list of Blogger post.
A while later, I tried to post again, and got the same error message. This time, it appeared in IE, also.
A bit later, I was able to publish both posts in Firefox. When I posted the first one over again, I noticed that the original copy of it disappeared from my blog. I thought this was strange since I was expecting a duplicate post.
A few moments ago, I checked my blog, and both posts had totally disappeared, both from my blog and from the dashboard list of Blogger posts. They are gone forever. Does anyone know what is wrong?
I am having the same problem. I'm only using IE. I published a post, and it showed up in my RSS feed but not on my website or on the dashboard. Subsequent posts were published to the blog in lieu of the original, and they overwrote each other. None of them is in my Dashboard.
User comments aren't showing up on my main page, though they are on the individual post pages. I still don't see the latest posts in the Dashboard. I'm afraid if I try republishing it will just destroy the latest posts, since they're not in the Dashboard.
I am having a similar problem: none of my changes are being saved. My post (and my new template) will publish, but blogger won't save them in my account (do not show up in my list of posts, no record of my most recent publish on my dashboard)

We're having the exact same problem on our blog - we publish a new post, and several previous posts disappear from the database, and several others switch to draft status. we're at americablog.blogspot.com
I've made two posts to my blog today and both of them have disappeared. The first one still appeared on my blog for awhile but didn't show up in the Create/edito screen. Then it disappeared entirely. I reposted the same article and now THAT is gone too. I'm using Mozilla for my browsing/posting but I tried opening it up in IE and it's not showing up there either, so it's not a caching problem.
I posted today at 3:00PM, saw the post on my index page, a few readers saw it and commented. I checked the index page again near 5:00PM and the post was gone along with the comments. I sent the blogger support group a message and got the same response you all did.
Unlike a lot of you, I didn' back up my post, so it's gone for good.
Looks like I'm gonna have to start backing up on a regular basis too, if this keeps up. Really hate to say this but it seems like the Blogger staff is asleep at the wheel today/tonight, what with how many people this is affecting :-(
I published 3 comments on a friend's blog who uses Blogger comments and noticed that it would record it and then delete it seconds later. It was very frustrating, but it didn't get as personal as it has until now - the post I wrote & published this afternoon is now completely missing.
I notice everyone else on here has had this same problem on this same date - I am sure there is something going wrong with Blogger (which hasn't seemed to be working so well lately). Hopefully they can fix it soon...until then, I guess I'll be saving my posts.
