It seems most likely that you don't have the module on your system.
To fix that problem, somebody (perhaps your SA, or you) needs to run
a command like this one (showing a Unix example):

shell$ perl -M'CPAN' -e shell

... then when you get the prompt:

cpan> install Net::Blogger

If you end up doing this as a non-privileged user, you'll also
need to set the PERL5LIB variable to point to the installation directory,
as in:

shell$  export PERL5LIB="$PERL5LIB:$HOME/my_modules"

Hope that helps,
