And yet again. I am more and more of the opinion that this is the result of an attempt to break the PW, and gain access to my account. Very interesting.

It happened again. Someone, or something, has again initiated a "password recovery" routine for my Blogger account, so I could blog about it - yet again. Most interesting. Here is the list:

Is someone randomly attempting to gain access to my blog, thinking that it is unused and they can find a way to post, under my name, without me knowing that is happening? I reckon I should have Google watch for postings to all of my blogs, and let me know when they occur, jjust to be sure they are mine. If that is possible.

On the other hand, maybe this is a Blogger glitch of some kind.

I received only two unsolicited new "Blogger Account Information" emails offering the opportunity to change my password on Monday; one at 9:13 PM the second at 9:26 PM.

HEY! BLOGGER! WHAT GIVES WITH THESE? ( I have posted a request for information on this issue at the Blogger user forums, but expect no reply.)

Blogger seems to be generating random password changes.

Last night I logged in, using my long standing PW. Posted the November 18 entry on this blog.

Just now I could not log in. I requested a PW change, changed the PW, and was returned to my account so that I could post this blog entry.

I did not change my PW, so Blogger must have. Or, and this is an interesting possibility, Blogger's PW records are not secure and someone else is changing my PW.

Since notes to Blogger Support on this topic are ignored, it seems to be impossible to find out from Blogger what is happening.

UPDATE: 10:09 PM
I find SIX, countem, 6, new "Blogger Account Information" emails from "" in my inbox! WTH? Each is identical, and begins with
This email is a response to your request for information about your Blogger account. To regain access to your account, please click on the following link:
The times of the emails are: 6:44 PM; 6:57; 6:59; 7:00; 7:13; and 7:19 PM.

Is Blogger generating these randomly? Why are they being generated, if not by system error? To double check I logged onto my Blogger account and posted this update, with no apparent difficulty.

It seems to me that Google needs to give its Blogger subsidiary a hand - maybe send some of its crack systems and programming people over to straighten things out a bit.

Every year, Blogger seems to originate new password access issues. The most recent, as of November 18, 2006, at 8:06 PM, is "

Well.... why don't I remember requesting information about my Blogger account?

When I attempted to access my account, I found that there is a "conversion" of Blogger in process to a new format. I decided to try it, but on logging in - using my long standing and almost forgotten PW - I was told the conversion could not be accomplished and I should "check back later".

Maybe October or November of 2007?

This is a test, initiated as a result of repeated password change emails from "Blogger Support". Four of them, so far this afternoon.

Reckon this is my first post.

Once I have posted, I have to be able to find my way back here. Hmmm. I'll likely be editing this one! ;-)
