How to embed a spreadsheet into your WordPress.com Blog

Quick Unrelated Introduction

This blog came about as a good friend of mine is wanting to start a Blog.  Now I know what he has to write about will be really beneficial to a lot of people and has a lot of potential to be really popular.  He asked my advice on how to start off his WordPress blog and I was going to do a Blog covering that.  Then I had a reality check and realised not only are there plenty of bloggers out there who know much more than me about WordPress but WordPress’ own tutorial is pretty idiot proof, so if it ain’t broke why fix it.

How to embed a spreadsheet into your blog

So anyway, back on topic, my friend has this really cool spreadsheet he has created (I will link to it in a later post when the blog is up and running) and he wanted to share this on his Blog.

If you have a Google Doc you want to share instead then WordPress have this covered too.  just click the link here for a list of how too’s regarding all types of google docs and how to embed them.

    Hi Matt

    I have gotta say I feel kinda guilty about this post…as it’s basically just me linking to WordPress tutorials, but they are that good, I couldn’t of done them any better or clearer. It came about as a mate of mine asked if it was possible and I found it was and was going to do my own tutorial, but tbh the WordPress ones were good as they were.

    Quite a nifty feature, hopefully one you may be able to use in the future 😀

    Thanks for the comment

      Cheers mate, I hope you will find what you need in the links on the post and it’l save you scouring the web for how too’s.

      Once your blog is up and running, make sure you link your name to your blog so people can click it and see what you are writing about 😀

      Keep me upto date on the blog mate and if you need anything just ask.

      Thanks

      Dave
