Here is a tale of woe that has (touch wood) ended.
This morning I attempted to log on to my blog. I got the following message:
“Username and password do not match. "
I tried again. This time I got this message:
“The email you provided does not exist.”
I checked my spelling (several times). My e-mail address does exist and was working. I tried to find a contact or help address on blogger. All I found was a Help Forum, which specifically had a category on logging-in problems. Good. I tried to post my problem. I got this message:
“You must sign in to Google to complete the previous action.”, which of course I would love to have done, but if I could have, I wouldn’t have needed to ! AAAArgh !
Aha, I thought. I will create a new Google account. That’s when I got this message:
“A user with the email you specified already exists. Already have a google account? Try logging in.”
I then spent a fruitless half-an-hour trying to find out how to contact Google. All I found were various accounts of other people who had also found it almost impossible to contact them.
Finally, I pretended that I had forgotten my username. Blogger helpfully told me what it was, which I already knew. Then I pretended I had forgotten my password. Blogger let me set a new one (How kind !). So here I am again.
