I had a little trouble accessing the account associated with this account (it's a long story, but I tried to get Google Adsense added to the blog - hey, everybody's in favor of money, aren't we?). Tried a fix this morning, and it finally worked.
A good thing to do is to add another author - a fictional one - to your blog. That is, get access through another email account, just in case the first one screws up. That's what I did as soon as I was able to access the blog.
However, I also now have another blog, and may use it as an occasional posting site. Always helps to have a back-up.
