Features:
1. Create next day's jot
2. Navigate to a random jot
3. Navigate to the jot for a year in the past

Creating next day's jot
Visit Jots Mode and run the plugin from the Jots Suggestions that appear at the bottom of your Daily Jot. The suggestion will disappear if a Jot already exists for the upcoming day. The first time you run the plugin, you will have to select the template to pull from.

Navigate to a jot
Simply use Cmd-O or Cltr-O to bring up the Quick Open menu, then type in "Amplejots" and choose one of the options. Currently you can navigate to the jot corresponding to a year in the past or to a random jot.
