Last night I decided to do some blog 'housekeeping'. I deleted almost a week's worth of comments from blogger dashboard thinking they were saved in posts as they had been published. I was then horrified when I realised my error i.e. comments were gone from posts!
I've checked my blog backups but they don't hold the previously published comments. I've done my utmost to restore the deleted comments - from 30th Sept to date. Alas, I have been unable to save the vast majority. I am very sorry to all who took the time to comment as they mean a great deal to me.
This won't happen again!
