You know that to use blogger you have to have a Google Account, right? I have a Google Account with the same yahoo address I've been using for many years. But in order to chat with the RGBP board I needed to be able to googlechat from gmail, so I had to sign up for a GMail account. Apparently I'm not smart enough to sign up for gmail with my Google Account address (because it didn't work in the heat of the moment when I needed it) so I got a new GMail account with the same username as my Google Account/Yahoo email.
Now I want to merge them because I can't be signed into both Blogger and GMail at the same time, which drives me nuts. But guess what? Can't do that. And I can't delete my GMail account and start over because my yahoo email address "is already taken" for Google Accounts. YES, of course it is! By ME! And you can't contact the google help people--you just have to use the troubleshooting/FAQ pages. Well, that's too bad because THAT'S NOT HELPFUL. I am screaming at my computer screen.
So now I have a new gmail address for chatting purposes and it is linked to my current Google Account but it is NOT the same username and that's very irritating. and if any of you work for Google, you should know that this is a clear flaw in your system. Just saying.
