Google, do you really have to make my life this complicated?

I can't be logged into my personal account and my work account at the same time and access my blog??!!

Or, let me rephrase that: I can't be logged into my work account and access my personal blog?

At least not from the same browser? At least it doesn't appear that I have to log out of my work account on all my devices ... (that would imply: including my computer at work).

The procedure is:
if you want to access your personal blog and have a gmail interface at work:
close your work email tab in your browser
edit your blog
reopen your work email tab (from the history works in Firefox)

If you leave your blogspot tab open you can still access it after reopening your work email tab but you won't get the initial access to your personal blog if you have your work email tab open

I'm pretty sure the same isn't true for Google Drive/Sheets as I do access this from my personal account all the time while having a work email tab open - so, please Google, fix this for blogger - I do want access to both of my email accounts at the same time.

I just went through this again - and the Google "elp" isn't helping at all. I had to log out of my account(s - it logs you out of all of them) and log in again.

This is still the case. And allegedly Google left a message in my work phone saying "if you don't access it we will mark you business as permanently closed" where the beginning of the message is missing because it's a recording that talked over the recording from my work phone and only the rest was recorded starting from "press whatever number to talk to me now".
Should I even believe that this was Google?
