Came across a google blog I had years ago- was obviously under the impression nobody would ever read it. Full of moronic teen rubbish, spelling mistakes, first names and all!

I can't access primary email or even remember it. The backup account was also deleted. I've been reporting it for various things in hopes it might get deleted. There's no box to explain your motives. Please pretty please, can anyone help me?

I know this isn't an Aibu but need advice from somewhere getting traffic.

You can get it removed from the google index so anyone searching your name won't come across it: support.google.com/legal/contact/lr_eudpa?product=websearch

Do you remember the backup account email address? If its been over a year since it was used you may be able to remake the account depending on your email provider, use that to reset the blogs password then delete.

What host / blogging site did you use? I have successfully managed to delete 2 old blogs but it would depend on which site you used.

Hahahahaha I had this too OP. I meant to do something about it and promptly forgot.

Every few years it springs into my head and go back and it's worse than I remember.

I look at it as my time capsule of Asshattery. It keeps me on the straight and narrow wink

Google Blogger. I've done the whole official bit of claiming it as my own with govt ID.

I've just read that reporting for alleged abusive content is a misuse of the process, and can apparently leave you legally vulnerable. Not exactly reassuring.

Why didn't they warn us about this -facepalm grin

I know Jeremy! I was such an opinionated little prick! blush

Your email would have been a gmail account or even a 'googlemail' one before they changed it over to gmail.

Let me see if I can figure something out for you.

Im guessing you have been onto this page to try to recover access to it?

I'm sorry I can't help, but just wanted to say this really did make me laugh....

Sorry, and I hope you can find a solution blush grin

Yes, I've done everything. In the absence of a silver bullet, I think I'll just have to wait and see if they choose to delete it or not. I highly doubt there'll be 'public interest' in what I had for dinner way back when, so fingers crossed.

Thanks for your help, everyone.

Afraid not, can't think of a worse way to out myself. I do feel a poetic moment coming on, though...

(to the tune of House of the Rising Sun)

"Mothers, tell your children
Not to do the things I've done
For you know an 'anonymous' Google blog
Can be read by everyone"

Just an update to say they did take it down. Thank you, lovely Mumsnetters.
