How to link your self-hosted WordPress with your WordPress.com account

Did you know that you can configure WordPress.com as a central dashboard for all your blogs, including your self hosted ones?

It’s fairly easy to setup and comes as a by-product of using the Stats plugin.

To use Stats, you need a WordPress.com API key, which you’ll get for free once you sign up for a WordPress.com account.

When you activate Stats and type in your API key, your self hosted blog automatically shows in your WordPress.com account. It even lets you start a new post right there and then, which is convenient when you’re working across several sites.
