Edit your Blogger profile

You can share information about yourself with your readers through your Blogger or Google+ profile.

Choose and edit your profile

You can choose between your Google+ profile or create a Blogger-specific profile.

Use and edit your Google+ profile
  1. Sign in to Blogger.
  2. Change profile to Google+.
  3. Confirm the changes and check the box.
  4. Click Switch now.

The change will affect all of your blogs. Once you’ve changed, you have 30 days to revert to your Blogger profile. After 30 days, your Blogger profile will be deleted and you’ll need to create a new Blogger profile. Any information you had in your Blogger profile will not be shown in your Google+ profile.

Note: Google+ profiles are public, but you can choose whether your profile will be found by a search engine.

If you choose to use a Google+ profile, your name on your blog will change to the name on your Google+ profile.

Comments made in the past will still display your Blogger profile name.
