A Second Chance In Life

Not all bloggers can handle the truth, and when I have told some that
With anonymous ownership comes responsibility. You have to maintain access to your blog, without requiring additional assistance from Blogger.
not everybody responds positively. I won't publish the email that I have received recently, thanks to the Google Forums anonymous email delivery service.

But given further chance to reflect, there may be a way around the quandary. If you can't prove ownership of the blog, you can't have control of that blog. Sorry, that part can't be avoided. But you can start a second Blogger account, and a new blog, and you can link the new blog to the old one. You won't be able to go the other way, unfortunately.

But there it is, for you - a second chance. You don't have to pay a thing for the privilege - like all Blogger blogs, this one too is free. And, you get a new account, and a new password.

And maybe, with the new account, you can remember the password, and maintain the backdoor access? Be a responsible blogger, and encourage others to do the same.

I hope it works, Chuck.
Subtlety is a useful technique, but sometimes a baseball bat has to be used.
Too many bloggers are 'not responsible' and can't see the need to be. (Spoon-fed all their lives).
Responsibility is also needed in learning about their blogs, too. Take the Settings screens, Blogger Help articles, (self-observations), for example.
Is it just too easy for them to ask questions? I think so.

What's about "dead" blogs? Why can stupid people block interesting blognamens?

There are no dead blogs. All blogs are equally valid, regardless of posting activity, as long as TOS is not violated.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
