    I'm a wordpress.org user, but I use wordpress.com stats. I received a message this morning telling me to install the Jetpack plugin to get further updates on wordpressstats.com. So I did this, only to find that to authorise Jetpack to connect with wordpress.com I need an account. Why would I have or need to have an account with wordpress.com as a .org user ?

    I don't understand !

    Even before Jetpack -- you had to have a wordpress.com login in order to use the wordpress.com stats for your wordpress.org site. So even though you weren't hosted by wordpress.com -- you could still use their stats functionality by linking your wordpress.org site to them. It's a subtle difference that can be easily confused IMHO.

    Go here to change your WordPress.com password:

    I'm sure you had one if you used WordPress.com stats.

    Hi Ballet News Admin,

    As vsgreaves has said, you have needed a WordPress.com account in the past to use the WordPress.com Stats plugin. The WordPress.com account links your self-hosted WordPress.org blog to the WordPress.com cloud, which enables WordPress.com to uniquely track your blog's traffic.
