Logging In To Blogger

With the coming of New Blogger, logging in to the right account (Old / New) should be more straightforward.

  1. Clear cache and cookies, and restart your browser.
  2. Login using the new, improved Blogger Login screen.


You'll have separate, well defined choices.
  1. Old Blogger, using your Blogger account.
  2. New Blogger, using your Google account.
Make the choice wisely. Blogs using the old template may or may not be visible and accessible from New Blogger, and vice versa. If you login, and your blog isn't listed, or if listed isn't accessible, then logout, and login again carefully.

But the first time that you use the new login procedures, be sure to clear cache and cookies, first. Blogger appears to be reusing addresses, cookies, and scripts, even though they are providing a new set of servers ("www2.blogger.com", instead of "beta.blogger.com", for instance). If one of your cookies continues to point your browser to "beta.blogger.com", guess what will happen?

No, I can't say for sure. But I'll bet that you're not as likely to see your dashboard, when it does.

Start cleanly, and clear cache and cookies, before you login to The New Blogger for the first time.

After updating to IE8, I've never been able to log onto my blog again. I've done the emptying/restarting so many times now - that I'm quite sure I'll never be able to get into my blog again. Even though TODAY - I can actually leave a comment! If anyone can do anything to help me I'd be very appreciative. I found this link through a Google search.

BJ,

It's been a while since this particular issue was explored. Why not post your question in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, or in Nitecruzr Dot Net - Blogging? That's where you get peer support.

I still can not get onto my blog. Have done all, many, many times over. Will I have to move my blog to another blog site (wordpress)?
