Recently, a friend of mine was having difficulty with her blogger. She would be able to post but, every time she wanted to see the blog she would get an error message. The message would tell her to report her problem and use the bX-1nz54f code in the report.
Albeit, Blogger is a wonderful and FREE service however, I can think of 100 easier things to do besides get 1:1 help.
