New Year, New Blog?

Happy New Year!

With all that has been going on...
With all that will be coming up in this new year...
And with all of the stupid new security things on this blog site...
  
          ... I may need to create a new blogger.

I know, I know, it's sad.
But I'm not leaving.  Per-say.
And who knows if I will really actually do it.

The problem is that my old email account was randomly shut down. 
As in, adios, see-ya, peace out!
It was my "whatever" account.  It was the account I used to set up lots of "things" because I never actually had to check it. Therefore I avoided all the update-emails overload.  It was the email address that I used to start this blog, and the blogs that paved the way before this one.  It was a brilliant plan, until gmail decided to 86 my Mom's account, therefore zapping mine into oblivion as well.  Therein lays the problem, at some point blogspot is going to require me to "confirm" my email account.  And when that day comes, I'm screwed.

All of that to say, with my new plans for the new year, perhaps it's time to start over?  Begin anew? 

Thoughts?

It might be fun to start over - I did once - but it really seems like Blogger should be able to help you switch the account over to a different email address.

Aloha.
I second first commenter.

Have you tried to open a ticket with google?

Both for the purpose of retrieving the email account, and changing the confirmation email for your blog?

Just remember that that it can take a while so if you want to take that route it is best to start early and arm yourself with patience.

I love my wise friends. If it weren't for you, I'd be lost.

Last year I attempted to change the main email account, but it wouldn't let me. Mostly because (apparently) my old blogger used that email address. I got annoyed and gave up.

Instead of throwing my hands in the air, I should probably try some more things first.

Secretly, I think I want to change my background and everything for the New Year, but am super worried I will lose it and be very disappointed if I cannot replace it with something equally rad.
