Blogger gives you the opportunity to delete a blog from your Google Account, without deleting the actual Account. Blogger Accounts, at this time, cannot be deleted - unless you delete the actual Google Account!
To 'Permanently' delete a blog, there are several things you should do, first:
- Make a copy of your blog, and store that file on your computer
- Export the XML.file of the blog - in case you want to start again
- Remove ALL personal information in the blog Profile
- Delete ALL posts from the blog (see: Edit Posts)
Then, if you are 100% sure, proceed to the blog Settings - Basic screen. Next to Blog Tools, the 3rd Option is Delete Blog. Click it.
The next step is to 'Make Sure'. Blogger gives you a reminder about exporting the blog. To complete the deletion, click 'Delete Blog'. It's all done.
Now, so many people realise their errors, or mistakes, in deleting a blog. I recommend NEVER deleting a blog. So, Blogger now gives you an opportunity to Restore the deleted blog, if you do it before the expiration of 90 Days!
After that, Blogger may be able to help you, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Proceed to logging in to your Blogger Account, to bring up the Dashboard. At the bottom of the Dashboard, just before the Reading List, you should see 'Show All'. This lists ALL blogs - current, or deleted (within 90 days).
Click on Show All to reveal any blogs which have been deleted within the past 90 Days. To restore that blog, click on 'Undelete this blog'
Behold, the Restored Blog -

Delete in Haste? No Way!
