[WordPress] powers this blog. At some point in 2012, WordPress made its jetpack, which has been one of its secret sauces at [WordPress.com], available to WordPress users. I just received notification that my [annual report for 2012] was ready. (All the details are at the link: plus some cool HTML + CSS layouts.) Here are the highlights:
