How to switch or transfer a blog to a different accounts | Blogger Tips

Blogger.com has given opportunity to transfer a blog from one google account to another. It is necessary when you have multiple Blogger or Google accounts and to maintain multiple blogs in different account is hard. So you can switch a blog from older account to newer and manage all blogs from single account. Moreover, when somebody sells a blog, he/she can transfer a blog rather than sharing account's username or password.

 Switch a blog to different account

Step 1
: Log in to Blogger.com

Step 2: From dashboard select Settings then click on Permissions tab.
