Sorry, I misunderstood your question.

The easiest route is to avoid running your own server altogether and
register with a hosted OpenID identity provider. These include Six
Apart's TypeKey, at <>, and Janrain's MyOpenID,
at <>.

You can then use your own homepage URL as your identity using OpenID's
delegate functionality, by putting something like the following in your

<link rel="openid.server" href="" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="" />

<link rel="openid.server" href="" />
<link rel="openid.delegate"
      href="" />

With that in place, you should be able to sign in to LiveJournal using
the URL of whatever page you added the above links to.
