If You Gave Control Of Your Blog To Someone Else, It's Not Your Blog

We see this naive question, from time to time, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?.
I added my friend as an administrator, to my blog. He changed permissions, locked me out, and now I don't have access. Can Blogger get my blog back?
Here, we have bad news for you.

The only way you can prove ownership of a blog is by having control.

If you give up control of your blog, it becomes somebody else's blog. If you want control of the blog restored to you, this becomes an internal dispute between you (the former owner), and your previous friend (the current owner).

Blogger Support can't involve themselves in internal disputes.

Once again, we have to remind you to only give control of your blog, to people you can trust.

The blog that you save may be your own.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
