We will use Google Docs to manage our group projects online. It is easy to embed your Google Docs: spreadsheets, documents, forms, and presentations into your WordPress.com blog by copying and pasting the “iframe” embed code.

To publish any of your docs, follow these guidelines:

1. Open the document you want to like to publish.

2. Click the Share drop-down menu on the top right of the page and select Publish to the Web….

3. Click the Start publishing button. A link to the published doc appears in the publishing dialog.

4. Send this link to anyone you’d like to access your doc.

Create a post for your company’s mission and business description using the library databases in your Google Doc. Use these instructions to embed the information into your blog post.
