So simple! Plugins are simple to install and activate from the WordPress dashboard.
After signing up for a WordPress.com account and installing the Jetpack plugin, I was able to activate it and authorize it to use my WordPress.com account. Then by generating a special email address that enables me to post via email, I can now send emails to this special email account and it will post them for me!
It allows me to tag the email with special short does which enable categories, tags, delay posting, etc.
