How to remove client’s blogs from your blogger dashboard

remove client's blogs from blogger blog dashboard

In my last article I discussed “5 colorful recent posts widget in blogger” you can add to your blogger sidebar for user experience, retention, traffic. In today’s article, I’m rightly walking you through how to remove a client’s blog from your blogger dashboard. But before we start, how come there are client’s blogs or others blogger blogs being listed in your blogger dashboard?

Why clients blogs/other blogger blogs listed in your blogger dashboard?


How come there are other people’s blog(s) appearing in your own blogger dashboard? That’s a good question and a bond of this context contention anyway. The real fact is that, those blogs are not there (listed in your dashboard) by mistakes. You added them yourself in the first place. Most precisely, in one of my blog post “how to add or invite author or admin in Blogger”. That’s where it all started.
For your blog to appear in other blogger’s dashboards, you may had invited them through their emails as author (to guest post on your blog), or even made those invited bloggers an admin (to edit or customize your blog). 
Similarly, for other bloggers blogs (clients blogs) to appear in your own blogger dashboard means – the admin behind such blogs must have already invited you to their blogs through your email, either as author (for you to guest post on his or her blog), or as admin (for you to edit or customize their blogs), of which you accepted those invitation in the first place.
Note: the dashboard listing of other blogger’s blogs is respect to both ‘author and admin invitation’ and ‘accepting the invitation’ all for guest blogging or editorial role of the blog. The only disparities between author and admin in both listing in other bloggers blogs is the fact that:
1. As author, you have access to add, edit and publish post right in the client’s dashboard, as well as can remove yourself from the said blog. In order word, authors have only access to the blog “posts” (add and edit posts using ‘post tab’) and “setting” (chooses to posts using email through the ‘setting tab’) tab/buttons.
2. As admin, whether you get listed in other people’s blog or them (client’s blogs) being listed in your dashboard, admin has total control of the blog, ranging from posts, pages, earnings, theme, layout, settings etc and that’s why admin can only be made if you want (hire) such a client to render services like editing and customization of your blog template.

The concept is indifference in other CMS


The concept of both author and admin being listed in your blog dashboard, as much as they can choose to leave the same blog is applicable not only in Google Blogger, but also in other content marketing service (CMS) like Wordpress. The only differences is that each platform concentrates on exchanging authorship and administration roles with internal blogging members, irrespective of if such internal blogging member is using free or paid same blogging platform; and individual platforms disparities in settings and processes of exchnging authors and admins. 

Internal bloggers and External bloggers review

In order word, Google Blogger blog concentrates on accepting authors and admins basically for the porpose of guest blogging from bloggers from the same platform (CMS) ‘Blogger to Blogger and Blogger to Blogspot’. The same applicable to othe content marketing services/platform like Wordpress - exchanging author or admin from to premium Wordpress version –
For more clarity, refer to one of my related article “external guest author’s profile widget in Blogger”, which clearly identified the inability problem of exchanging authorship and administration role between CMS (Wordpress to Blogger), and therefore, provides a simple solution to guest blogging issues between the external bloggers (bloggers from other CMS) and the internal guest bloggers (bloggers from the same CMS) of different content marketing platforms.
Removing internal blogger’s blogs from your blogger dashboard

I’m using ‘internal blogger’s blogs’ in the subtitle above because (external blogger are bloggers from other CMS, while ‘internal bloggers’ are bloggers from the same CMS. Therefore, I’m specifically interested here on removing client’s blog, other blogger’s blogs or internal blogger’s blogs specifically from blogger blog dashboard, since this has to do with blogs from the same CMS.
While getting listed in others blogger’s dashboards, or other people’s blogs (from the same Blogger platform) being listed in your blogger dashboard are as a result of accepting author or admin invitation, or other bloggers accepting your invitation as author or admin, the following processes should help you remove other bloggers blog from your dashboard, just as you can remove their respective blogs from your blogger dashboard.
1. Login to your Blogger dashboard.
2. In the top left of the page is a navigation menu when clicked upon, can display blogs listed in your blogger dashboard.

4. Click on ‘Settings’. From the settings tab, you gain access to other important tabs and features in the same client’s dashboard (this is bad for security reasons).

5. Click on the “Basic” in the same settings tab.

6. The ‘Basic’ tab of the blog you want to remove from your blogger dashboard four segment and that’s includes ‘Basic’, ‘Publishing’, ‘HTTPS’, ‘Permission’ and ‘Blog readers’ all in the same ‘Basic’ page. Concentrate on the ‘permission’ because, that’s where authors can be invited to the blog, and where authors are made the blog ‘admin’, and even where the both invited author and the admin be be removed.

7. Lastly, all you have to do is to locate yourself (it should display your avatar and your email address) from the client blog, and use the (X) tab to remove yourself either as an author or the admin from the client’s blog.

Note: as soon as you click the circled (X) parallel to any blog you want to remove, that blog is totally removed and seize to be listed or appearing in the said blog dashboard. 

There is no limit to how many times you can be listed or appearing on the same blog provided there is an email invitation and accepting invitation.

In conclusion, for clients blogs to be listed in your blogger blog dashboard means that you accepted their guest blogging invitation, or even made the accepted author the next blog admin. Only that the invited admin do not know the said blog login password and hence, he or she can cause harm to your blog if it’s someone of a questionable character. As well as the author, author through the ‘settings’ tab has access to delicate part of your blog, and can as well cause harm if he or she deep necessary. This is important issue Google Blogger developers should address.

The guest blogging invitation for the guest authors are supposed to be made with a single tab without access to other delicate part of the blog. Admin’s role is a wide and broaden issue, and trusted clients are best also suited to be invited or  made the blog admin because of the total control over the said blog.

That’s where I draw conclusion for today’s post about removing client’s blogs specifically fro your blogger dashboard. You have any uncleared issues? Don’t hesitate to let me know, using the comment box bellow.
