What is meta?
Here's how it works:

  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I use my blogspot account as my OpenID login account to log into StackOverflow ( and other openid enabled website). On a second thought, I believe that maybe using my Google account is a better idea.

Is there anyway to switch the OpenID provider and at the same time, retaining the information pertaining to that account?

StackOverflow has support for a second OpenID. Go to your profile and Click New Login. You can make your new login the primary OpenID by clicking swap.

This is site site specific. Other websites may have their own way of doing it, or not have the ability.

I did the same. Logged in using Yahoo and did a New Login for Google. Still my yahoo rep is not reflected on the new google login. – Rashmi Pandit Jul 20 '09 at 6:20
Did you create a second account by mistake? You'll need to contact a moderator to merge them; email – pgs Jul 20 '09 at 8:17
