Profiles and Comments

The main problem, now that my main blog is on WordPress, is that blogging systems often link comments with profiles on their own system. For instance, Blogger blogs (whether or not they're hosted on Blogspot) let you use your Blogger profile when you leave comments. Of course, you can also manually enter your info, bypassing the profile. But using the Blogger profile is just too convenient. Which means that people who click on my name in a Blogger comment will come here instead of going to Disparate. Which might explain why comments and links often remain within the same domain. Ah, well...

How do you bypass the Blogger profile thingy? I'm having that problem at the moment. I'd like people go directly to my blog but instead they go to my profile, which in turn makes my stats package say that everyone coming to my blog comes from my profile, which is useless for me.

My comment was more about choosing a non-Blogger identity under the comment field in Blogger blogs (instead of "Your Blogger Display Name"). But that's not what you want. You could also uncheck the box for "share my profile" so that people wouldn't in fact see your profile, but then they wouldn't know where to find your blog. You can also change your profile to show your main non-Blogger blog, but that's not what you want to do either. Most likely, what you want to do (get users to see your blog when they click comments submitted with your Blogger display name) cannot be done as such. So, my advice is for you not to use your Blogger display name and choose the "Other" identity when you comment on a Blogger post.
Let's hope that won't cause you an identity problem!
