Personal Blogging Sites and Comments

I have a few friends, co-workers or other acquaintances who have their own blogs.  Great!  A lot of them even go on to use WordPress as the blogging engine of choice.  Great!

The problem is they are hosting their WordPress blogging engines on their own website, rather than using WordPress.com (as I do).  This causes a problem for me and other visitors.  We have to create a new login (register) with each site before we can post a comment on their blog.  Why? Because their blogs are running in what I like to call Disparate mode!

You guys know who you are.  Can something be done? Can you not have your user list sync. with WordPress.com or some other Blogging API that keeps one central database of user logins?

Do this…and I will write more comments (heckling may be involved).  And me writing comments means you will actually know that someone took the time to read and respond to your blog.  🙂

It was just a thought…

  1. If WordPress has OpenID support (it appears to… http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/03/06/what-is-openid/) , they/you could use that. And everyone with a wordpress account already has an OpenID account (you are https://hurley.wordpress.com, for example). woot!

    I use a different provider (myopenid), but same concept. OpenID has some places where you have to be careful, but in general, it’s a pretty awesome decentralized identity framework.

  2. Great…now lets see if they read this posting and are willing to make changes. 🙂
