Help Me! I never bothered to remember my password - I used the Forgot Password wizard to reset my password every time I wanted to sign in to my Blogger account. My email address changed last month, I can't get the email from the Forgot Password wizard, and now I can't sign in to my blog!
Blogger blog owners being as they are, they always show us exciting, new ways to make mistakes. This month, we're seeing similar reports, from people who can't use their GMail based Blogger accounts.
Fortunately, there is a way around this problem, too.I tried using the "Forgot?" wizard, but instead of giving me a hint it told me that it would send an email to my GMail account. This doesn't help me at all - considering I don't remember my email address!

You have to know something, to recover access to your blog. If your Blogger account is based on a non GMail email address, you may have a similar possibility. And when you check your email accounts, GMail or non GMail, check persistently.
As you continue with the login / recovery process, be aware of the nature of Blogger accounts, email accounts, and Google accounts. And when you login, use the "One account" login process properly.
