so i hied myself over there and did one of them openid things (better late than never, i suppose).  and being the super-creative person i am, i'm la_tante there too.  and now i guess i, well hmmm.  i keep thinking i'd like to buy the membership if i can get one when it opens on the 30th.   but i'm not sure.    i feel like i worked pretty hard to create the community i have here and not sure if it makes sense to have 2 blogging identities on teh interweb. i realize many people do have that but it seems so complicated to me.  perhaps if i were invited to be a beta-tester, it might be a more pressing thing to do.  it is exciting and seems pretty damn cool and i like the idea of participating in something new and vaguely subversive.  tell me what you think, oh flisty mcflisters!

Since Open ID lets you have icons and a reading page and see people's locked entries and get comment responses emailed to you and leave comments the only functionality you can't have over there is actually posting entries - you can play over there a while first and decide if you do want to dual blog.

(also, if you have an Open ID and you've validated the email address, you're in the pool of people they're sending codes to every day and there's a good chance you'll have one by the time open beta starts. And there's no need to be invited to start testing/helping out - they've got some guidelines on how to do it)

ah ha! thank you so much for the clarity! i have validated the email so i'll wait anxiously to see if i get shipped the codes. it's like wondering if the idc is the right one!

*nods* And you can do a LOT with the Open ID, if you aren't sure you want another actual blog. From my understanding most days they've been randomly picking about 50-75 Open ID users to send codes to and validating your email and using your account helps your chances.

Also they've been giving more and more codes out to users, so watch your flist for people saying they have codes to distribute. You'll get there if you want it!

Did you validate your ID too? Because then you're in the pool for a possible random invite! I gave the only one i had away last night, but when I get more I'll ask you if you need one and sent it right over! :)

I did validate everything, so maybe I'll get an invite. If you do get more, it would be awesome to have one, but no worries. I totally shoehorned myself into this thread. :)
