OpenID allows you to use a single username+password combination that lets you log into hundreds of websites including Digg, Blogger, WordPress, Technorati, etc. Unlike traditional web forms that require you to type both the user name and password, you just need to type a personal URL in the OpenID login box. To get an OpenID that is the same as your blog URL:

Step 1: Visit myOpenID and create your profile - it will be something like

Step 2: Open the HTML source code of your blog / website and add the following lines of code:

<link href=”” rel=”openid.server” />
<link href=”” rel=”openid.delegate” />

Replace xxx with the user name that you created in Step 1. Save and you are done. Your blog URL is now your OpenID.
