Forgot my blogger.com user id and password. What now?

    Alright, I have a big problem.

    I have a blog hosted at blogger.com that I have somehow ignored for the past 8-9 months. Now I badly want to restart blogging there.

    But then, I suddenly realized I have totally forgotten the username and pw for that account. To make matters worse, I don't even remember the email address to which blogger sends the changed password details to.

    I need to reclaim the blog really badly. It gets about 150 hits a day even now and I have made some plans for it.

    Any ideas anyone? Has anyone been in a similar situation before? If yes, what did you do?

    PS: I can prove the blog is mine. All the adsense ads there have my PID and it also has my statcounter code.
    Plus, I have complete access to the e-mail id to which blogger sends mails to notify me of any comments.

    This may be stupid, but have you tried http://www.blogger.com/forgot.g ?
    As for the proof, for me it's no proof - they can deflect those arguments stating that you may as well have asked someone to insert those codes and ask for comment notification.. :|

    yeah...i did try the 'forgot password' thing, bragn.
    But as I said, I dont know what email id blogger sends the password changing details to. I had created a seperate email id for the blog and have forgotten that id too!!:eek: All blogger says is that it has sent the mail to my yahoo account.

    Atleast if there is any way for me to find out where blogger sends those password details to, I might be able to retrieve the yahoo password and then do something. Is that possible?

    Or is there no way I can reclaim my blog now?

    Blogger accept normally gmail id, I think you should use your gmail id to get the password.

    thanks for the reply, bobchrist
    But actually, blogger sends the changed password to the email id which i signed up with. And I have signed up with using a yahoo id which I happen to have forgotten...

    Anyone else has any ideas?

    Check your main email account. Whenever you create a new account anywhere, you usually provide a secondary email address, yes? If you did, the notice about the creation of your account should be there somewhere.

    you can get the id and password if
    1. you remember your blog URL
    2. you remember your google account email and have access to its secondary email or know the security question's answer

    Your Blogger username (email) and password is part of your Google account, first you have to sign in your Google account. If you don't remember your Google password, there are other possibilities to regain it (change password per email, security question, etc.)

    Asking Google in a scenario like this won't help. Otherwise people would claim that they have forgot the password to their blog as well as to their email address, and get access to blogs belonging to others.
