Check suto save...it may have save some in draft.
I save every 50 words or so.
Look in the drafts and see if it is saved there. Very frustrating and happens to me on almost every post, despite saving them as I write them.
Check your saved unpublished drafts. Might be there. I have had this happen and have learned to hit save throughout writing to make sure it is actually saved.
I see several answers prompting you to hit save regularly. No help for any lost work but it may help protect against future issues. We all feel your Grrrrrrr!

Check in your drafts, it may just be hiding there.
Sorry for loosing your blog post, it is very upsetting, but I would skip what the ....
Make sure your save your drafts.
Do check auto-save. This has happened to me on occasion and it's just "poof, gone!" As they say S__T happens! Sorry it happened to you. (One thing I do regularly is save throughout the writing process.)
I write everything in scribe fire and then posted to active rain. I've lost too many posts due to the gremlins in the active learning system.
Hillary Sheperd - sometimes this happens....
Just save the posts regularly or use external HTML editor.
