    yes you can...

    you just need to take a backup of the blogger site and then send that backup to new owner.

    you need to invite the new owner to be an author on the blog, once he accepts you can upgrade him to admin and remove your own access, so the blog is fully under his control.

    Exactly. There's also an article about this on Google's knowledge base - http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=41448.

    One thing to bear in mind, though, is that what you're transferring is the admin rights to the blog from one account to another, and NOT the ownership of the blog. This becomes important when selling a blog that's hosted by a third party, as essentially you have never owned and as such, can't legally sell it. You might own the content of the blog but not the blog itself (or the URL) so if at any time Google pleases they can close down the blog and you (or the new owner) won't have any rights to complain.

    It's obviously not very important in case of smaller sites but if you were to draft a purchase agreement and there was a dispute afterwards then you'd be in a very difficult situation.
