You can use Google Webmaster tools to check for the broken links in your blogger account. It, however needs you to have fair knowledge of computer software.
Third party services are available like http://brokenlinkcheck.com.
It can take long to check your site/blog, but comes up with pretty good results. You need to manually edit and correct the broken links though.
