Removing Yourself, as Administrator, or Being Removed, from a blog.

I saw a question on the Blogger Help Forum, this evening, from a blogger who has lost Administration control of his blog. Naturally, he was upset and wondering what to do.

In a situation like that, Helpers have, basically, only one question, and that is: "Do you know anyone else who is an Admin on the blog, who could re-instate you?" The answer is normally "Yes" - but, will that person?

Therein lies a situation - Only have co-Admins on a blog whom you TRUST!

Therein lies another question. "If you have more than one Admin, how did you get removed from the blog?" Answer - either you removed yourself, or the other Admin removed you!

Now, to remove yourself from the Admin role, is easy. If you are an Admin, navigate to the Settings - Basic screen, then to the 'Permissions' section at the bottom. Either change your Status, or remove yourself. Simple.

The Slow Way - gradual death by in-descision - will I, or won't I? Changing your Status from Admin to Author, is slow and tension filled. You get there in the end, but why? Just do it! I would NOT be an Author on a blog that I created, letting others make all the decisions.

Ta dah! Your gone.

The Easy Way - "a sharp knife cuts cleanest" - Simply click on the small 'X' next to where it says 'Admin' and ZONK - you're gone. Now that would be a lot easier for you - AND - a lot easier for some other Admin to take over your blog! Think about it.

REMEMBER: If you want to get out of a blog, do it, and do it PERMANENTLY.

Hi Bob - definitely worth protecting oneself and not trusting others too much, or just not taking on the role of blogging administrator for others ... cheers Hilary
