Blogger adopts OpenID site-wide

Twitter / Case: OpenID FTW!

Clarification: The title of this post is a little misleading, as Oxa pointed out. Blogger has only enabled OpenID commenting site-wide. The author regrets any impression otherwise.

In what has to be a positive sign of things to come, Blogger has taken the OpenID commenting feature from beta to live in a matter of two weeks.

This is huge.

With great progress coming on OAuth Discovery, we’re rapidly approaching the plumbing needed to really start to innovate on citizen-centric web services… and social network portability.

  1. I think your headline is a little misleading.

    According to the official explanation posted to my blogger dashboard by the staff, the OpenID feature applies only to commenting.

    Yes it is out of beta, available on all blogs not just “Blogger Draft”. Still it is only enable for commenting and only as an opt-in feature.

    My issue is mainly that as the blog owner I still cannot login to my Blogger account with OpenID. The Google ID is still required.
