Jonathon Balogh blog: How to Use Google Analytics on a WordPress.com Blog
In any case, I was about to reconsider investing in a self-hosted option when I found a post in the wordpress.com forums linking to a solution from a content delivery network called CloudFlare.

Aliso the Geek | A coder in love with WordPress
The more I code, the more fascinated I become with the idea of how much I don’t know about programming. New techniques come into being every day, and I just can’t keep up with all of them. On this blog, I try to at least keep up with the WordPress world. I love making WordPress plugins, and I love learning more about the WordPress API.

My maiden name (Kleinschmidt) caused my first name to get cut off on the attendance sheet: “Kleinschmidt, Aliso.” Teachers usually understood it was Alison. One teacher that I’d had before called me Aliso all quarter as a joke. The nickname then followed me to work, where my boss expanded it to “Aliso the Geek.” They even got me a birthday cake one year with that nickname on it.
