Is this possible?

Someone stole my old writing blog - content and all!

The formatting is different, but everything else is mine! I deleted this months ago (once blogger started offering the ability to label posts) to consolidate everything onto one blog, but somehow it's back, under someone else's name and control.

I am NOT happy about this, and have complained to blogger, but so far (it's only been a couple days) they haven't responded.

Well, whatever happens with this situation, I know one thing for sure: I will never post anything I write on blogger again (I almost made a blog to house my NaNoWriMo - so glad I didn't). Apparently, just because you delete it, doesn't mean it's gone. And apparently someone else can come along, hack into something somewhere, and poof - what was yours is now theirs. Bastards!

WordPress, girl! And the customization isn't as difficult as you may think…

When are you moving everything over to my server, anyway?

I'm a fellow published writer, and stuff like this just kills me. What do they think? How will they ever sound like you to write something new. That is assuming they want to write something new. I have sent this to fellow writers who post a lot of their work on blogger. Maybe you should put the copyright symbol and date on everything you write on the blog. I'm under no illusion this would stop the worst kind of thief. Sorry for ranting.

Thanks you guys for the moral support (and I am totally considering moving to WP). I'm still very annoyed with Blogger - mostly because they haven't responded to any of my complaining. UGH!

Never delete your blog. Delete the posts and remove it from your profile instead.

Blogger are notorious for ignoring their users - Wordpress are supposed to be much better. In the meantime, try posting on the Blogger Google Group.

It's really weird that they just re-posted your old blog, though. Normally they post spam or a redirect to a spammy website.

Pacian,

I've totally learned my lesson about deleting a blog! :(

I will try my luck in the Google Group - thanks for the tip :)
