Well, this was not the answer I was hoping for, but it was what I expected.

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in. To move a blog to another account on the new version of Blogger you will need to invite yourself or someone else to join the blog. To do this, go to the Settings | Permissions tab, click on the "Add Authors" button, enter the email address of the person you would like the blog to be moved to and click "Invite". An invitation will then be sent to the email address you provided. Open this email invitation, click on the link to join the blog, and enter the Google Account username and password that you want the blog moved to. You should then see the blog on the dashboard of that account. You will then have to login to your other Blogger account and add your second account as an admin member of the blog by clicking on "Guest" from the Settings | Permissions tab.

Please note that currently you will be unable to remove yourself as a member of the blog if you are the owner of the blog. We appreciate your patience as we continue to improve Blogger.

The Blogger Team

I am attempting to transfer the ownership of this blog to someone else. This is a blog on blogspot and we both are under new blogger.

We are attempting to follow the instructions here - - and I have successfully added Scott as an admin. However, when he attempts to remove me by following these instructions here - - he is unable to do so. Please see the following post with screenshot to understand the issue more clearly.

If there is any way that this could be addressed, we'd appreciate it. I would be happy even if the blog were deleted and added to his account. Just so long as no one else (e.g. a spammer) were to nab it in the interim, this would not be a problem.

The documentation help files are outdated as of the new version of Blogger. This is an issue that has been discussed on the Blogger Help Group several times. If you could address this specific to my issue and make sure it is listed under known issues and addressed, I'd appreciate it.


Oh well. What can I expect? It's free, right?


  1. Per your other posts about low hit count, the good news is you're #1 for "transferring ownership blogger" on the Google.

    Obviously, this is a problem lots of people are having--including myself. Good luck and make sure to post the solution if you get it figured out!

  2. Thanks Malcolm816. With this blog at least, I am only semi-placated by the fact that at least this one post will be relevant for some folks.

    Working in software, I can understand the need to work slowly and make small changes. So I can have patience until this issue does get fixed. In the meantime, I'll keep harping that it needs to be added as a feature just so they hear it's importance. :(
