  2. I got a very big Problem, I just want some solution for my blog. It is Too Heavy, and it is causing big problem for me. I want posts to appear in 2nd page, and i want first page to be without posts, i will add something else on first page, like a simple html welcome page or something like that. How to do that in blogger?? minimum post count is 1 per page, i simply want it to not appear in homepage, if i remove the post widget, it is deleted for all pages. what is the solution??

  3. Time. Just wait for 3 months for Blogger to remove it.

  4. Let me test my answer. I am going to delete this blog Guang Zhou Kitchen from another account and let us check in 3 or more months time if the blog has been removed from the list of blogs.

    I will be documenting the test over at Test to see how long deleted blog stays in blog list and you can check back here or that test post for the results.

  5. I don't have that link in EITHER view. On the particular blog I'm trying to delete, I don't have a basic option. Even with the new dashboard, the only thing that is in settings is the mobile stuff. I was able to delete 2 other old blogger blogs but for some reason this last one just doesn't seem to have an option to delete. Any other suggestions?

  7. Referring to the comments about deleting the blog completely without even showing in the deleted blogs list and the Test to see how long deleted blog stays in blog list which was deleted on 21/1/2012,

    the result as of today 6/4/2012, that is, more than 3 months after deletion, that blog is still in the deleted blog list and can still be undeleted. Will check again later.

  9. I can see my old blog, but cannot access it, and therefore cannot delete it! Google completely screwed up the user name and password. What do I do now?

  10. From Lisa: [FAQ] Regarding account-related issues:

    If you have an issue that is related to account access or other login problems, please head over to Blogger's account recovery tool where you can resolve the issue on your own.

    "Due to the sensitive nature of these issues, we won't be able to troubleshoot your issue in this public forum. If the recovery tool does not resolve your problem, head over the the Google Accounts Help Center which has more detailed information about recovery."
