My blog is on my friend's dashboard.

Q: I created a blog while using my friend's computer. Now my blog is on his dashboard. How long after deleting will my blog name become available?

A: Deleting the blog will not make the URL available for anyone (including you). You need to transfer ownership properly.
Make the blog in question into a team blog, with two members, then removing the original team member: http://www.google.com/support/blogger/bin/answer.py?answer=41448

Method 2:
Another way is to vacate the blog address (URL):
1. Sign on with account A (using your friend's ID and p/w) to his dashboard
2. go to settings>>publishing>>Blog*Spot address
3. change the URL (of your blog) to some other name, say xyz1234 (thus vacating the URL)
4. do the word verification.
5. save settings
6. sign on with account B (preferably on another computer): www.blogger.com
7. create a blog
8. choose the name you want as your URL
9. continue to make a post on your blog.
10. publish post

( later on, when you are free, return to delete the blog (xyz123) from your friend's dashboard.)

I cannot find my blog on the web.

Q; Where is my blog?

A: If you are the blog owner, you do know its address (URL). There will be no need to search for your blog on the web. Paste your URL inside the address bar (not the Google search box). Click refresh and you will be taken instantly to your blog!

To become google-able and popular in the Blogosphere takes a lot of hard work on your part. You need first to post some interesting stuff that many people want to read/see/listen/watch. You also need to actively promote your blog and get the search engines involved. Perhaps you are not asking about this. If all you want is to work on your blog. Go to this screen: www.blogger.com and sign on to blogger using your ID and password.

Your blog has a unique address (URL) on the internet. Any one can access your blog and see it by pasting the URL inside the address bar and press "refresh".

Authors/owner (you) can go one step further. You can create/edit posts. Only you know the ID and password to sign on and change/edit any thing on your blog. Anyone else can certainly see your blog if you give them the correct address (URL). Older blogs can be "found" by googling key words, without even knowing the URL.

DarkUFO summarized all the above, this way:
Don't delete it!
If you do, you won't be able to use it.
Rename the first one to something else, then rename the 2nd one to the first one.
