You Have To Request Spam Review

Many blog owners, alarmed by their blogs being classified (righteously, or spuriously) as spam hosts, decide to pack up and move to another hosting service.

We see the question, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, too often.
Can I just get read access to the content, so I can take it and go elsewhere?
And the answer is firm and simple.
No.
You can't have deleted content back, without review.

Blogger will let you go - there's no problem with that. WordPress can always have more spam.

However, the content that is in the deleted / locked blog will stay, in the deleted / locked blog. Blogger won't let you have the content back - whether to create a new Blogger blog, or a blog outside Blogger / Google.

If you want the content, from your recently deleted blog, back, you have to get the blog reviewed, and restored.

To give access to content from a classified blog would encourage spammers to play endless games of 3 Card Monte, with their spam. Whenever a blog is classified, they will just setup a new blog, copy the content from the blog just deleted, and continue as before - same content, new URL.

If you want to stay, get the blog reviewed and restored - then clean up your act.

If you want to move on. move on. But you move on, and you get to start over.

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.
