Blogger: Remember Me Option

I found problem that every time I wanted to come to Blogger, I need to log in again over and over even I checked "Remember Me" option.

To let Blogger remember your loin and password, have to allow cookies for the site.

Using Internet Explorer, select "Tools -> Internet Options"

In "Internet Options", select "Privacy" tab and click "Advanced".

In "Advanced Privacy Settings"
