OpenID commenting.

Have you noticed? It's gotten easier to sign in as a commenter here on Blogger. You can now sign in using your blog URLs from WordPress.com, LiveJournal, and AOL Journals, or with their AOL/AIM accounts.

First!

No I did not notice that.

I'm glad you pointed this out. I didn't like having to sign in with my blogger account each time because it also logged me into Google which then saved all my searches, etc. so that I had to go back and delete them. There's probably a way to set it so it doesn't save the searches but this takes less steps anyway.

I read it and didn't understand it.

I'm sure what they did is simple but they neglected to say what it was.

I really like when people sign in so it's a link to their blogs. Commenting should work as a way to invite people over to your blog.

I'd comment on the new ease of commenting, but unfortunately I'm banned.

Bummer!!!

This is great. I asked Santa for some sock puppets for Christmas.

Hey, good stuff. It definitely feels more comfortable to comment under my blog identity vs. my email identity.

The real improvement will be when it is easier to ban people from commenting. :)

Alan said...

Cool. I may have to start my own weblog so I can take advantage of this. Heh.

Ann Althouse said...

Hey, Dewb... loved the pig.

Anyone feel the loss of a comment from anyone who was banned? Anyone? Bueller?

Thanks for pointing out. I tried to comment on your Kindle review (which was excellent) but could not. Did you like your Kindle? Will you keep it? I take it your review was on the fence. Is your Madison wireless access fast?

Let me take the opportunity to say that your site is very nice. It would be good to know about your technology environment used for your photo, vlogs, etc. I was not sure what sort of laptop/camera/audio equipment you use. Your students/colleagues must be impressed with your online expertise.

Yes to Obama; No to Clinton

Cool! Thanks for pointing that out. My blogger blog has been defunct for years now and only serves to redirect.

Well, actually, not so cool. It works for WordPress only if your blog is on Wordpress.com, not an independent installation.

Back to defunct Blogger....
