(I know the WP URL will redirect to mine, but the goal here is for backlinks to point to me, not WP, in case I should ever <gasp> move my blog elsewhere, like self-hosted.) Oddly, I've found the question asked a few times here, but the topics all get closed before a solution is posted. E.g.: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/openid-redirection-how-to
It appears I need to add a couple "OpenID redirection" tags to the HTML <head> section, and this is easily done with self-hosted WordPress.org - how is it done with WordPress.com hosting?
The blog I need help with is richard.hornbaker.org.
