I had several long paragraphs going into detail about my use of social media, my current activities, my improving health and other updates, but some strange accidental swipe of the trackpad while typing selected all the text and it all went into the ether. About a half hour of thought and typing was wasted. I'm not bothering to recreate that effort.

Well in a sense you got the benefit of having collected your thoughts?

I'm sorry that happened. I enjoy hearing what's going on in your life.

It's all bullshit here on LJ anyway so your decision was a wise one. I've gotten to the point where I just write on my blog on Blogger and don't care if it gets read or not. This site it a total bust now. Glad to get some indication that you are improving .

That mainly happens to me on Dreamwidth for some reason; occasionally I've tried to re-create the post, but usually I just say, "Fuck it."

well.. technically it wasn't social media that was hard, it was the stupid trackpad ;) Hopefully at least writing the thoughts down was helpful, even if they were deleted.

I'm glad to see the phrase "improving health" if nothing else.

Improving health sounds good- sorry your post was lost.

Would have liked reading it.

Been there, erased that. More than once.

When it's happened, more often than not I'll realize that my lost post was largely inane babble and only interesting to myself and one or two other twisted souls. Or, it needed a major rewrite. Or both. But then I enjoy the writing process.

However, nobody said that any of us were Hemingway...

Keep posting, please!

Well, that sucks. I've had that happen. My track pad does that sometimes but I can usually recover it. Glad to hear your health is improving. :)

I absolutely hate it when stuff like that happens. :(
