Besides from the things gone as mentioned in Blogger's official blog post here -> An update on Google+ and Blogger, we have a confusion on profile that needs to be clarified. That is the reason why I am writing this down.

How do I update this profile?
  1. Go to blogger.com
  2. Navigate to Settings > User settings
  3. Click Edit under Blogger in User profile section
  4. You'll be navigated to https://www.blogger.com/edit-profile.g where you can edit your profile that appears on the blog.
