When Commenting on a Blogger site I am Told I Can Not Use My New Blog Name

    I just moved to a new blog (same user name) now when I go to comment on blogger blogs and try to use my new blog name I get the message back that it isn’t mine to use.

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


    Hmm I see one of the problems is that echolage.wordpress.com comes up as my identity but I have switched to nouncertainground.wordpress a few weeks ago.


    Okay so I have changed which blog is my primary blog, and have changed my “identity” but it still comes up that I don’t own that identity.



    It’s not you. 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 and blogspot software thinks we all have a single username here at wordpress.com and a single blog by the same matching name. So if we have a domain or more than one blog registered under the same WordPress.com username trying to comment becomes a nightmare. 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.
