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.

 

Spreadsheets

Click on the “Start publishing” button:

From the second dropdown menu select the “HTML to embed in a page” option:

The last step is to copy/paste the iframe code into a Post, Page or Text Widget in your WordPress.com blog.
