Use a Google+ profile on Blogger
  • Switching to a Google+ profile will affect all your blogs.
  • After you've switched, 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.
  • Google+ profiles are public, but you can choose whether your profile can be found by a search engine.
  • If you use a Google+ profile, the name on your blog will change to your Google+ profile name and will link to your Google+ profile.
  • Comments made in the past will still display your Blogger profile name. Manage Google+ for your blog.
