I am sure this has been covered, i looked tried a couple examples but could not find it. I really want to use blog engine and not word press and this function is essential. Is there anyone that knows how this would be possible

Thanks

A previous thread brought up the possibility of user self-registration:

ASP.NET 2.0 provided the building blocks for that, though it would probably require some customization in each case because of the different roles a particular site would want implemented.  Perhaps you could contact those who were expressing interest in that functionality and encourage the development another step or two.
A possible subsitute, for some sites/situations, might be the "newsletter" widget that allows visitors to add their email address. You can add that to a sidebar and visitors can add or remove themselves from the list.
