Actually, once you hid your Blogger profile, none of your information is available. This includes your previous posts.

You can go back and see for yourself.

However, if you want to remove any of your comments, simply make sure that you're logged into Blogger (leave a comment, click "sign in" in the upper righthand corner of this blog, etc.) and you'll see a trash can icon near your comments. Click that icon and your comment is deleted.

Blogger is the system from Google that this blog, and a few thousand others, are run on. When you left this comment, you signed in with either a Google account or an Open ID. (That part where you were asked for a user name or password).

If you go back to the post that you want to delete right now, you should still be signed in so you should see the trash can icon.

If you're no longer signed in, go to the main page of this blog (and in the upper right hand corner, you should see the phrase "sign in".
