You can definitely still use the domain at Blogger, but will need to update the DNS on the domain in order to properly direct it to that hosting. These instructions from Google will show you what you need to do in the GoDaddy account.
Complete the setup at Goggle: https://support.google.com/sites/answer/9068867?hl=en
If you no longer want to host the domain, you can change the nameservers on the domain to "default" here.
The domain will then resolve to a parked GoDaddy page (not an error like it does now).
When you say "I've done that", what action have you taken?
What is your domain name? Where are you hosting the domain?
We have many customers with their domains at GoDaddy directing successfully to Blogger. The domain is not affected by our servers, as you are not hosted here. In fact, it appears that your website is now intermittently resolving to your Blogger site. However, an external DNS lookup shows that you are only resolving through a forward command, not by the Blogger requirements to achieve consistent resolution.
(1) You have a URL in the "Name" field... an A record that does not belong, is not functional. (remove that record)
(2) You have not added the 4 A Records as required by Blogger. (as shown in previous post)
(3) With these settings, your domain should forward to just your domain (not the blogger address).
(4) This works when you complete the setup at Blogger for the domain.
