Recovering Your Non GMail Based Blogger Account

Like problems with people who can't remember their GMail email addresses, we're seeing complaints from blog owners who never bothered to remember their non GMail based Blogger account name or password, and who now cannot login to Blogger.
Help me! My previous email account is defunct, and now I can't access my blog!
Everybody makes mistakes - and some mistakes must be resolved by the blog owners.

Just as GMail provides the possibility of recovering your GMail email address, so do most public non GMail email services. Yahoo, for instance, has a link I can't access my account which leads to their wizard.
Looks like you need some help?
Here, you have 4 choices.
  1. I forgot my password
  2. My password doesn't work
  3. I forgot my Yahoo! ID
  4. My account may have been compromised
Similar to selections provided by GMail, here you may see some possibilities to get your Yahoo email account back in order, so you can recover your Yahoo based Blogger account.

Other email services, hopefully, have similar utilities. You'll most likely have to make some effort to prove who you are, to any of these services - but if you try, you'll probably get your Blogger account back a lot sooner than just posting in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken
Help me!
And when you check your email accounts, GMail or non GMail, check persistently. And, be prepared for seeing spoof filtering effects.

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.

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.
