Please delete my blog

Q: Trying to delete a blog from college that comes up when I google myself. No longer have access to the email address used and forgot password!! Please help! I'm getting the run around with support!

A: You get the run around because of this fact: If Google  agrees to delete your blog for you, just because you say so. Then they will become so busy deleting blogs that there is no time left for doing other things: e.g. making more money for the company!

Blog owners must realize that they are responsible for their own blogs and therefore must always make sure that they can sign on to edit/delete their blog. I don't work for Google. I am just another blogger like you, helping out on the forum. Problems like yours is very common:
