I have 2 blogs!

Q: Hi I'm oldmothercath and I need a little help I went to post a new blog this morning but somehow I now have 2 blogs. Help!
A: Having 2 blogs is fine. One account is good for 100 blogs and each blog is good for countless posts. 

I think you are confused by Blogger's terminology:

Unlike other blogging platforms (word press, my space, typepad, livejournal, multiply, facebook, orkut, friendster, hi5), on Blogger, we do not call a blog, a blog. We call it a post. When you wish to make a new blog, you should click on "new post" or the pencil icon. Other wise you would be creating blog after blog, unintentionally, like now. This is terrible. No one will read your blogs arranged that way, all over the internet under a different URL for each post.

1. Sign on to your blog using your ID and password here:
2. On your dashboard click on "new post"
3. Type inside the post editor (large box) or upload a photo
4. Publish post.

Your blogging area will be filled by your posts as you add more posts (no limit). The side bars are meant for adding gadgets: About me, archives, labels list, link list etc. Continue to add posts to your blog. One blog is usually enough for a new blogger. Please do not create too many blogs today. What you need to do is add more posts to the 2 blogs you have now. 

I do not recommend that you delete the second blog. Very often I find that deleting anything in Blogger, merely puts the item out of your own reach and does not give the expected results (peace of mind). Quite often you will have to back track, in order to solve the original problem. Some times this will involve the Google team and help from them is not so easy to get (no email address and no tel No:)

If you like, you can make the second blog into a stub blog or a test blog. You may take a peek at mine to get some idea:
