Thanks for this tutorial! So helpful.


Awesome! Thanks so much.


I am having the same problem as sicelo.. My visitors cant access the documents if they dun have google account.. Is there anyother way to make it possible?


Heather, thank you so much! I have an ebook that I want to make available to the public for free download and was stymied at how to get a URL for it. I think this has solved my problem.


Thank you!


Nice article but visitors of my blog cannot access the pdf if they don't have a google account which is not nice. Is there a way to avoid this?

You are beautiful. Thank you for the information. It was quick and easy to follow.


very useful.


Heather, thank you so much for posting this. It was VERY helpful. =)


Thank you. That was so helpful!
I did it and now wonder how some bloggers display their document, as well.

How can I show what the document looks like if I want to do that?

Thanks again!


Thank you! Very helpful!

Excellent tutorial. Do you know if you have to tick the box to convert to google docs format when you upload a PDF? Does it matter? Thank you

You may instead have a blue word/link that says "Link". Give that a try.
Keep me posted :D


I do not have the paper clip on the new blogger, April 2012.


Thanks so much for this! This is way more simple than I had expected.

Hi Lisa!
Yes, when you click the Upload button, a screen should appear that lets you select a file to upload from your computer to Google Docs.

If that screen doesn't pop-up…do you have your Pop-up Blocker on? Or try holding down the CTRL key when clicking the Upload button.

Keep me posted…
Heather :D

Hi Heather, I kinda guess that I'd need to use Google Docs but wasnt sure how. Question is how do I add this download function to a side bar? Thanks, Baz
