    The Jetpack plugin requires you to connect to a WordPress.com account to be fully activated.

    To do so, you will have to create a WordPress.com account here:
    https://en.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    Please note that WordPress.com accounts are different from the account you use to administrate your blog and from WordPress.org accounts.

    Let me know if you have further trouble with this step.

    Thanks Richard. I am using my WordPress.com account – at least the same one I’m using to login and post here. Still can’t connect. I just get the following message:

    The password you entered for the email or username boondocker is incorrect.

    Remember, you need to sign in with your WordPress.com account, not your http://snowmads.com account. What’s the difference?

    But it ISN’T the wrong password based on this username. The one I’m using here.

    Any thoughts?

    Ok, so a couple of other pieces of information. Nothing happens if I click the “forgot password” option in Jetpack. No email to my username, nothing. An again, I’m using the same username that I’m posting under right now.

    Thanks Richard. I am using my WordPress.com account – at least the same one I’m using to login and post here. Still can’t connect. I just get the following message:

    See, there’s the rub: a WordPress.org forum account (your “boondocker” account which you used to post here) is NOT the same as a WordPress.com account. So, go create a WordPress.com account:

    https://en.wordpress.com/signup/?user=1

    and then try again using THAT account to connect Jetpack to WordPress.com. Note: you do not need to use the same username (boondocker) for this new WordPress.com account as the username you have here.

    Ok, I did that. Sure enough. Is this a recent change? I know I’ve used the other account before… Like, a month ago. Strange. Well, mia culpa and thanks for your help!

    Great, I’m glad you got it working! Your site looks properly connected:

    As to your question, no, this is not a recent change. WordPress.com and WordPress.org are 2 different entities, and an account on one does NOT equal an account on the other, and has no in the past. In any case, glad you’re up and running now!
