A search for wordpress "this post is super awesome" with the quotes revealed some blogs about the "Surprise Me" option that has been added to Wordpress.

You don't say what blogging software you're using. But if it's Blogger, as well as publishing the spreadsheet (as per the previous answer), you also need to use a Web Element to display it in the blog. NB: I haven't done this for a while, and when I last did the Google Docs publish command didn't have a "share to blogger " option. There's a chance it's ...

You cannot install any custom plugins on Wordpress.com for related posts. Unfortunately. The one I've used and abused is called Yet Another Related Posts Plugin. It's highly customizable, free, and has the widget that you want. As of June 2012, there is no feature built-in to Wordpress.com to display related posts.

There is a rather lengthy explanation on the wordpress.com support page regarding custom menus, so I will just post the link to it: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/ You should find the required info there.

You cannot. That's part of the deal working with wordpress.com. You cannot edit the source code. You cannot add JavaScript. You cannot add your own themes. You cannot add arbitrary plug-ins. If you want to be able to modify WordPress to your liking, you need to download it from wordpress.org and self-host it somewhere.

I honestly think this is a legitimate Wordpress.com bug. I have asked for support in the official site, hoping that we either can get a workaround or if it is a real problem as I think, it gets picked up and solved. In my assumption, these are the security measures of iframes not being allowed overlapping with the source code display feature. Funnily ...

There seem to be two types of post editors inside WordPress.com. I don't know the official names for them, so please excuse my choice of names below. The "blog-level" editor, which you enter from within the Dashboard for your specific WordPress.com blog, and which is the "main" and full-fledged editor. The "WordPress.com-level editor", which you can enter ...

As for being a "tag present in regular WordPress" that's not quite how it works. Tags/Elements are HTML and are dependent on the WordPress theme you're using, not WordPress globally. If your theme doesn't have styling for <aside> (which is a newer HTML5 element) you could create a style for it using the WordPress.com Custom CSS Upgrade If your theme ...

Well, before, you would have had to sign up with a Gravatar account. There's really no difference. They've simply unified their user credentials. So, yes, you need to create a WordPress.com account. Don't worry, that doesn't mean that you'll have a WordPress blog. You can just use it for your Gravatar.

Automatically? Apparently not any more. However, you can achieve what you want on a per-post basis by using the magic of shortcodes. Specifically, the display posts shortcode. Add the shortcode [display-posts] in a post or page, and use the arguments to query based on tag, category, post type, and many other possibilities. Depending on what you want ...

Wordpress uses gravatars just like StackExchange sites source. Gravatar uses a hash of your email to identify you and return your avatar. By providing your email (same one you use here?), that's all Gravatar needs. Other than trying to do a search on Google or your preferred search engine, I don't think this would be possible.
