    I’m signed in to my wordpress.com-account and try to connect to http://blogger.com with my open ID. I allways get the error text on the next page when I try to update my connections:
    WordPress.com

    You do not own that identity.

    How’s that possible? What does that mean?

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    It’s how Blogger software is set up. Trying to post comments on Blogger blogs is a drag. Open ID fails more often than it works. Blogspot software thinks we all have a single username here at wordpress.com and a single blog by the same matching name. It will not accept any other URL. So if we have a domain or more than one blog registered under the same WordPress.com username trying to comment becomes impossible.

    Unless the blogger chooses to enable commenters to post with a username and URL on their Blogger blog it’s next to impossible to leave a comment. The only workaround is to register a Blogger blog which will allow you to comment but your username will not be linked to your WordPress.com blog when you do.

    Thank you so much. Now I understand.
    I’m new to this hence I was insecure about the handling.

    Bye
