Transfer Blog Ownership

We were posed a question – whether a blog can be transferred to another Google account. Our initial thought was that it can't be done since each blog is registered to a specific Google account. It was only recently when we were contemplating changing the Blog Administrator status in our Tips for New Bloggers blog that we realized that the new Blogger allowed us to change the Blog owner and transfer the Blog to another person.

The scenario we shall illustrate is for the current blog owner (“Blog Owner”) to transfer a Blog to another Google account holder (“New Owner”). This New Owner can also be the blog owner himself/herself who wishes to transfer the Blog to his/her other account.

Invite Contributors

The first step is to add the New Owner as a contributor to the Blog. To do this, login to your Blogger account, go to Settings -> Permissions and click “Add Authors”. Type in the New Owner's email address and click “Invite”.

Blogger will send an email invitation to the New Owner. The email will guide the New Owner through the steps to accept the invitation as contributor to the Blog. It will also lead the New Owner to set up a Blogger account if there isn't one. Once the Blogger account is set up, the New Owner can begin posting on the Blog as a contributor.

As a guest contributor, the New Owner has limited powers. The available functions on the Blogger Dashboard that guest contributors have are:-

1. Create Post
2. Edit Post (cannot moderate comments in posts)
3. Set own Mail-to-Blogger address to enable email publishing
4. Option to be removed as author of the Blog

Change Guest status to Administrator

To change the Blog ownership and transfer the Blog to the New Owner, the Guest Contributor status will have to be changed. The Blog Owner should login to the Blogger account and go to Settings -> Permissions. Under “Blog Authors”, the New Owner's name will be shown. Click the link next to it that says “guest”. By clicking it, the status will be changed to “administrator”.

There will now be 2 Administrators, both entitled to the same rights. The old Blog Owner can be removed as the Blog Author after that and the only remaining Blog owner and author will be the New Owner.
