I am new to self-hosted WordPress and am having a lot of difficulty commenting on Blogger blogs. I can't use Open ID WordPress because it requires I use the http://blogname.wordpress.com URL format. I own my own domain name, so I simply get an error message. I want to be able to comment so that my blog name and icon (gravitar) shows up, allowing other bloggers to click on it and go to my blog.
I have been endlessly frustrated by this issue. Is there some way around this that I can't find? I'm trying to market my blog for business purposes and need a consistent identity out there and the ability for others to click on my name and go to my blog. Anonymous posting doesn't really help me.
