Hey Look, Blogger Got Smart…

I think my rather caustic e-mail to Blogger HQ must have worked, seeing as they’ve decided to allow other non-blogger users to sign in. *g*

commenting is now available for all Blogger blogs. This means that your friends and readers can leave authenticated comments on your blog using their blog URLs from OpenID-enabled services such as WordPress.com, LiveJournal, and AOL Journals, or with their AOL/AIM accounts.

We’ve chosen a few popular OpenID providers to highlight on the comments form, but OpenID is, well, “open”! You can use any OpenID service to post a comment by choosing “Any OpenID” and filling in your OpenID URL.

Does this mean that you don’t have to have a Googlemail account to subscribe to comments I wonder?

Anyhoo, the wisest decision they’ve made for a while, as a lot of Blogger users were about to revolt.

    Ha! I should have known it was too good to be true, I’ve got boxes with red crosses all over the damn place!

    *checking to see if I can leave a comment*

    By the way… if/when you move, please leave a bread crumb trail?

    Now I get what those new grey and orange boxes are.

    The new way is a pain in the tail, but it’s better than it was.

    I still like WordPress better than blogger.

    Way too lazy to have a blog, so the nickname sign in is easier for me. But whatever, I’ll follow the breadcrumbs wherever they may lead, because you are always entertaining.

    Hmmmm. I don’t know, I think Blogger still blows. :o)

    Hmmm. It doesn’t appear that you can subscribe via email to follow-up comments. But I could always be missing something.

    I still can’t post my url. I still like wordpress better.
