  1. So far I was of the opinion that a blog post once deleted is gone for ever but from this article I came to know that it can be recovered. It is a very useful article. Deleting the blog posts some times happens for some reason and then this guideline will help definitely.

  2. Honestly I was also not aware that a post which has been deleted can be retrieved back. Great :) Thanks Sampat Jee, for sharing such a nice information.
