Troubleshoot issues

An admin lost access to the blog

If an admin loses access to the blog, another admin will need to give permission back. If you're the only admin, try other accounts you manage to see if you have access to the blog.

All blogs have at least one administrator who can give access to others.

Disputes over blog ownership

Blogger is unable to mediate disputes over ownership.
