Mistakes Happen

The popular saying isn't that, but it's close. We all make mistakes.

If you just made a big mistake and deleted your blog, or if you're the latest victim of an over sensitive Blogger anti-splog bot, recovering your blog will involve Blogger Support, and the Blogger Support Help Form.

But don't start there - start by setting up a stub blog now.

Then finish the initial recovery:

Optional steps while you wait for Blogger Support to act:
  • Put a post in your blog.
    (Blog Title) Coming Soon.
  • Admit that you were an idiot (yes, you were - admit it).
    (Blog Title) Coming Soon (Sorry - I goofed).


For a more complete procedure on blog recovery, see Aurea Martin (aka O.K., O.K.!) Erased your blog by mistake?.

Yeah, David, I see the problem.

How about you post in GBH: Something Is Broken, or in Nitecruzr Dot Net - Blogging. The online forums are much easier to use, then Blogger Blog Commenting, for interactive problem solving.
