I hope I can explain this properly. 18 months ago I started setting up my Blog, got frustrated and put it aside, but not before I added a name to the blog and entered a “test” blog. This blog was under the email of firstname.lastname@example.org. I believe my blog name was email@example.com (I’m not sure of this) When I use this address it says I am denied. If it lets you in then I know it is right. Can it be changed? And why can’t I see the 1 blog I wrote? Our primary email right now is firstname.lastname@example.org
When I use blogger.com it comes up to the Blogger page. The heading is Mike &: Nancy Putzier (I want to correct this and take out the accidental amp;. If this can’t be changed, then how do I start a new one?
I want things to be right and look right.
Thanks for your help.
I am just preparing to start a personal blog, so I am interested in how it all works. I will be using all of the Geeks’ tutorials.
I tried searching for you blog using this website.
I did find a Putzier Family blog someone created years ago and other blogs with the Putzier name mentioned in the text of the blog. But nothing like you described. I expect you will have to start over using a new email address. Let’s see what the Geeks say.
It appears the blog is still there, but you were confused with the address. email@example.com. Should be putziersinamerica.blogspot.com.
You need to be logged in with the Google account that created the blog as it is restricted.
This blog is open to invited readers only.
There is nothing wrong with starting over.

I’m back at this again. I have a new Google login that goes with my blog mikeandnancyputzier.blogspot.com. My blog is there. 1st question – above the blog are two choices – one is “more” the other is “next blog” when I select “next blog” a blog comes up for someone called vickiefournier.blogspot.com. I have no ideas who this is – how do I get rid of it?
2nd question – I want to create a new 2015 blog. So I go to the dashboard and select New Blog, it takes me to a page with the BLog List – Create New Blog. I add the new title, but when I add my blogspot address it says it is already in use. Does each new blog need a new address? I’m not usually this inept at working with the computer, but this simple process has been harder then I thought.
Thanks for the help, I’m determined to use this if it takes all winter.
1. The button for “next Blog” is just a Blogger way of getting people to read more blogs. It takes you to a random Blog by someone else. The only way to get rid of it is to get rid of that entire Nav Bar along the top … including the right side where there are links to “New Post” “Design” and Log Out. If you want to do that, go to your Blog’s settings, Layout, and find the gadget called Navbar – click edit and click None.
2. Yes, every blog requires a unique address. It is a separate website. If that’s not what you want, you just want a new post in an existing blog? Each entry is a separate “Post”. Maybe you just want to be able to write posts and group by a label? Check out this video:
