Making it easier to comment on blogs

Most blogs including mine make it extremely hard to comment, which explains one reason why only 1% of your audience comments. If most blogs ask for your email address, website or blog anyway, why cant we make it easier to comment?

My ideal solution is to get the comment feature working in my Google reader. So when I am reading something, I can just comment right there instead of clicking on that post, going to the blog site, then entering my information (for the 1000000th time) and then taking care of the captch stuff.

If you can comment directly from Google Reader (or any other reader) you know that the person’s authenticated and you dont need the captcha stuff.

Google Reader team can you please add that feature?
