irritating blogger failure

Due to the failure of blogger,could not post a blog for last 3 days.There was a scheduled release of blogger downtime on 13th.Not a problem usually but this time they messed it up.Not only i could not post a single blog for 3 days,my problem continued even after recovery.One of my post-the telegraph's biased report against BSNL 3G??-converted into draft.I published it and shared it with my friends.And even after the recovery,it was not available because it converted into draft from a published blog post.Really irritating.Just hoping something like this will not occur in future.
Here’s what happened: during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages. A small subset of Blogger users (we estimate 0.16%) may have encountered additional problems specific to their accounts. Yesterday we returned Blogger to a pre-maintenance state and placed the service in read-only mode while we worked on restoring all content: that’s why you haven’t been able to publish.  We rolled back to a version of Blogger as of Wednesday May 11th, so your posts since then were temporarily removed. Those are the posts that we’re in the progress of restoring.
