Help me!!!They have provided us with various tools, such as the ability to restore an accidentally deleted blog. The tools that they provide are not immediately, perpetually, or universally available, however.
Like everything that Blogger provides, we have to make an effort to benefit from their benevolence. There are limits to the ability to restore a blog, when deleted by the owner. A blog can be restored
A blog, deleted by an owner, can only be un deleted by an owner. The link to "Un delete this blog" will only be found on the dashboard of an owner. This prevents hijacking of a deleted blog, by a third party.
A blog, deleted by an owner, can only be restored within 90 days after deletion. Everything is finite, even the ability to retain deleted content. Google wants to provide an efficient and stable environment, for us to publish our blogs - and to recover our blogs, when necessary. Efficiency and stability is easier to offer, when resources such as retention of deleted material is provided with limits - and this is the limit provided.
If the Blogger account, which owned the blog, was deleted, that account must be restored - not recreated. A blog can be restored to the same account - not to another account with the same name.
Note two caveats here.
- The 90 day deletion policy does not apply to blogs (righteously, or spuriously) deleted / locked as suspected spam hosts.
- The deletion of a blog may not necessarily make the URL available for re use by a third party.
Other than the caveats, it's that simple. If you delete your blog, by accident, you can recover from the deletion easily enough - if you observe the limits.
