Changing Blogger Login Email

This took me forever to figure out, so I thought I would post it on my blog just in case anyone else was having problems with this too.

So, when I created my blogger account I used a hotmail email account that I already had, let's call it ""

After blogging for a little bit, I decided that I would rather have an email account just for blogging. I created

Now here was my problem. I would be logged onto my blog under my hotmail account doing something. I would need to go to my email, in which I would have to log out of google under my and log into Then I would need to go back to my blog, which would make me log out and back in again.

Basically, I was looking for a way to avoid all this logging in and out and in and out. Believe me it was happening a LOT!

Here is what I did.

1. I signed into my account in blogger.
2. I went to my dashboard and I clicked on the "Settings" tab, and then clicked on the "Permissions" tab.
3. I added as an author by clicking on the blue box that says "Add Author."
4. I logged out of my through google and logged on to my account.
5. In my email, I accepted the request to become an author.
6. I logged back out of and back into
7. I went back to my Dashboard and back to the "Settings" tab and then to "Permissions." I gave "admin status" and deleted myself ( as an author.

*Note: All of this was done through two accounts, my hotmail blogger account, and my gmail craftsandcrap account. So basically I was in Google the entire time, just logging in and out of two accounts.*

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

It's not too often that I know what I am doing when it comes to blogging, so when I figure something out, I love to share it :)

  1. You cannot do that anymore. Blogger Team will not permit it. It was very nice the way they had it and they way you did it then. But no more.
