Its not about how many article that you post on your website or blog each day to result top in Search Engine Result Page, its all about how much quality that your content has, for that blogger's spend several hour's online to post a quality content. But what if you (or) someone who have privilege to access your account has deleted your blog post accidentally, your hour's of work turned nothing.

When you delete an e-mail its quite possible to recover from the Trash folder unless deleted permanently, but by default blogger interface doesn't have any such folder to recover the deleted post. so recovering the data back to blog turned complex, but actually its easy to retrieve back if you know the trick.

How to restore deleted post back to blog ?
               Google search engines crawl article posted frequently, index them and saves a cache version of the page, and keeps on updating it. we have numerous possible choices to retrieve it back.      
  1. With Google Cache
  2. Draft Post 
  3. Feed Burner
  4. Way2back machine
1. Recover deleted blog post with "google cache"
           Whenever a blog article is posted, often search engine will make a cache version of the page, which will be updated in a regular time interval, which has all the information about the particular URL last appeared on site before deletion.

To find the deleted blog post Url:
  1. Type in google search engine. 
    • (Note: if you know the url simply type cache:yourblogurl in search page or address bar directly to open cache version)

  2.  At the source window press ctrl+f and type postID something like this  postID=4950781826288432010' Note it down.
  3. Now go to blog dashboard of the blog post which you want to recover. (Note: Since you can create maximum of 100 blogs per account, each blog that you create has unique blog ID)
  4. Open any published post (or) open new post and click edit option to open post editor.
  5. Replace the post ID that you find on the browser bar, with the deleted post ID that you noted down at step 2.

Note: If you have set your blogger feed settings to Allow blog feed  to "Short and Until Jump Break", it may be impossible to retrieve the deleted blog post with feeds.
4.Way Back Machine - Web Archive
                          Blogger will remove URL from its cache version that were dead for 90 day's, but we have another crawler called "way back machine" just like google crawler, this crawler also crawls and saves cached file in its database.
