The last post was me trying to figure out how to include a link to a word file or a pdf file into my blog. I posted the question to the Blogger Help Groups and got two kinds of advice. One was to use Scribd to upload my documents to and then link them to my blog from there. I tried this with my recipe, but I'm not sure I like the fact that you actually see my document in a web page for Scribd, rather than just as a web page of its own. The other advice I got was to set up a quick website say with Google Sites, and just use it as a place to store my files and then link them to my blog from that website. Both of these options seem awkward and a lot more work than simply creating a link. I was hoping to try to avoid creating a whole new website just for my class to use, and have them instead refer to my blog. What I can't seem to wrap my head around is why I can create a link to a picture file, or a video file or an audio file (all of which would be considerably larger that my word documents), but not add in word documents or pdf files of my own creation?
I'm keeping an open mind, but I'm starting to think that Blogger is just not going to provide me with the features I need when I incorporate blogging into my teaching.
