Google Blogger Account Changes

I just read an update on Google's Blogger account changes. Apparently readers who want to follow and comment on blog posts they need to sign up for a Google account. I wasn't aware of this until I read Google's Blogger Buzz today where they state that all non Google followers have to have a Google account to follow blogs. They used to have a Friend Connect feature for people to sign into to follow blogs but that feature is gone.
I'm going to see if I can change my settings to allow non Google readers to at least be able to comment on my posts.

  1. When I hit "post a comment" there's a spot below this that says "comment as" and there are lots of options! Livejournal, Wordpress, Typepad, AIM, OpenID, Name/URL, and anonymous. Assuming that means you don't have to have Google...

  2. Not sure what is going on. Have not heard any of this.

  3. Wouldn't it be nice if they just left things the way they were?! I do not have as easy of access to the internet as I used to and all of the never-ending changes make it difficult for me! Oh well :) We manage somehow ;)
    Have a great day!
