A work from home writers worst nightmare is to walk away from the computer and return to a blank screen. Losing content when you are right in the middle is horrible but it could be worse. As content writers we know all to well the horror of logging into a host site only to see that our articles have been lost. Panic is the first emotion we feel and it can be followed closely by rage. Us creative types can certainly be emotional creatures. If the fear of losing your work is keeping you from being motivated, and productive there are a few simple tricks you can use to ensure you don't lose anything.
Content writers who log into the host site only to find that massive "sweeps" have deleted articles often feel like the dog ate their homework. Although most of us can remember the content we have written it is hard to recall every article when you are trying to find the missing ones. Attempting to recall them all would be a bit like playing 'Where's Waldo?' in black and white; nearly impossible. We know in the content writing world things can and often will go wrong it's a good practice to prepare for that beforehand.
Write your Content Off-site
Avoid Copyright Problems
I often screen shot my articles when they go live showing the time and date. If a site were to ever use my content without my permission I can prove the ownership of said content and fight to have it removed. There's nothing worse than surfing some random site only to find your words with someones name staring back at you.
Remember to backup your backups. All your content should be routinely backed up onto disk. In the event of a computer crash, or upgrade you will have everything handy, and ready to go. This is also a fun way to see how far your writing has come over the months and years. I hope these tips help you manage the fears we all feel and have encouraged you to Write On!
