In one of my earlier posts, I had talked about “Transferring a WordPress Blog to Another WordPress User or WordPress Account“. Today, I am going to talk about the same thing Transferring Blogs only, but on a different blogging platform that is Blogger aka BlogSpot. Yes, Blogger also allows Blog-Transfer Across Blogger Users, so if you don’t need any blogname, you can pass it onto someone, who may need it. Unlike WordPress, Blogger doesn’t have a “Transfer Blog” feature allowing direct transfer of blogs across WordPress users, but it still allows us to achieve the same objective via Guest Blogging Route.
Here are the steps on “How to Transfer A Blogger/BlogSpot Blog to Another Blogger/BlogSpot User or Google Account“.
Step 1. First you have to add the person, to whom you wish your blog transferred to, as a Guest Blogger to your blog. Steps on how to do that are explained in one of my earlier posts about Guest Blogging on Blogger.
Step 2. Once you have added the person as a guest blogger, Go to Dashboard -> Settings -> Permissions, it will show you a list of current Blog-Authors. This will include you as well as the person, whom you have just invited for Guest Blogging.
Step 3. Click on “grant admin privileges” link, it will throw a pop-up warning you of the consequences of Granting Admin Privileges to a Guest-Blogger and confirm the action from your side.
Step 4. Once you have granted admin privileges to the guest blogger, you will see the following in your Blog Authors Page
Did you notice a “Remove” button against your name, which was not present earlier ?? Yes, it shows up only when you have more than one ADMIN user. Yes, its true, you can remove yourself from your own blog 🙂
Step 5. Click on Remove and it will throw a pop-up warning you of dire consequences of removing yourself from your blog
Step 6. Click on “Remove Blog Member” and you are done with your blog-transfer !! The blog stands transferred to the other Admin user. Next time, you login to your Blogger/BlogSpot account, you will no longer see this Blog underneath your name.
