Publishing to Blogger using Google Docs
Blogger’s interface, while easy to use, has rather simplistic formatting tools available for use. For example, it is a chore to add images to a draft because the images are uploaded before they appear in the draft. There is no way to add captions, or image borders, without a great deal of effort and prior planning.
It is much easier to use a publishing program or a word processor to generate the post first, and then publish it to the blog. This is where Google Docs comes into the picture; it is easy to create a post, rich with multimedia content and publish it quickly to the blog.
The settings are straightforward, as both products are Google and essentially use the same login details. The configuration merely involves specifying the blogging platform and the login details.
The advantage of being able to do this is that the functionality is not limited to just documents; Google Docs supports spreadsheets, presentations and even PDF files, which all can be uploaded a blog as downloads.
