I created a Blogger account with a non GMail email address, and can no longer access it without a GMail account! How do I login now?as if using a non GMail email address as a Blogger account name is no longer an option.
Your Google account can be a Blogger account with a non GMail email address
or it can be a Blogger account with a GMail address
How did you originally accept membership in the blog, or how were you logged in originally when you created the blog? That's the key question.
- If you accepted membership in somebody else's blog - or created the blog on your own - using a GMail address, then you use the GMail address as your Google account.
- If you accepted membership in the blog - or created the blog on your own - using a non GMail email address, then you use the non GMail email address as your Google account. Remember that even if the non GMail email account was deleted, or expired, you can still use the Blogger account that's based upon that non GMail email account.
Please, when you login to Blogger, take an extra 30 seconds, and verify that you are logging in using the correct Blogger account.Simple enough? It seems that way, from here.
