    I am new at blogging and I do like wordpress very much. However, I personally think there’s a bigger community at blogspot.com whrn it comes to diy arts and craft projects. This limits me from participating and engaging with those at the the other platform without compromising my blogs idenity.Can you make it so that those platform recognize us the way that we are able to like and comment amongst ourselves?

    The blog I need help with is dmooncrab.wordpress.com.

    In reference to Blogger the issue is on the other end. For example trying to post comments on Blogger blogs is a drag. Open ID fails more often than it works. Blogspot software assumes we all have a single username here at wordpress.com and only a single blog by the exact 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. 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.

    With regard to following blogs you can enter the URL of any blog into your WordPress.com Reader and follow it regardless of the blogging platform it’s on. http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/#follow-a-blog-not-on-wordpress-com

    Withe regard to “likes” note that one has to be logged into a Facebook account to use the Facebook like button. It’s the same here at WordPress.com and everywhere else that has such buttons.
