Worpress login does not go into blog

When people log in to my blog, it does not go to the blog, but a control panel type settings page !

It states "Akismet is almost ready." - "You must enter your akismet API key for it to work" When the link is pressed it goes to a page statng "you do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

What is Akismet, and what is the problem?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not. It is a Wordpress plugin, available here. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/akismet/
The admin must setup a FREE API key to use the plugin.  If you do not wish to use the plugin, though it is recommended that you do use it, you can disable it.  The messages will go away.

How do I make it so that even if I have akismet, login goes straight to my blog?

How do I set up akismet? I definitely want it on my blog!
Akismet is an anti spam addon for wordpress - http://akismet.com/wordpress/

Info on how to get the key can be found here - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting

If you don't want to use this feature, head to http://%yoursitenamehere%.wordpress.com/wp-admin/widgets.php you can pull Akismet out of the sidebar, which should disable it.

Hope that helps,
