As I said in the previously published article Bulk Upload All Types Of Files In Google Docs that Google docs has added many features, one of the great feature is that it allows you to publish posts directly from Google Docs.
Google Docs allows you to share any document with your friends. There is another option “Publish as a web page” under the “Share” option.
Why you should Chose Google Docs to publish blog post
If your blog has multiple authors who are from different geographical location in the world then Google docs comes very handy to publish your post to your blog from it. It is some time may be possible that your author works for your blog from a public computer. There may not be available some applications like Office, OCR etc. So your authors can still use Google Docs for editing their articles and publish them directly from Google Docs. This process is also helpful for your blog security.

Sign into Google Docs with your Google account. Compose your post. You can compose a document by clicking on Create New > Document in the dashboard. After saving your document click on the “Share” button.
Chose “Publish as web page” from the drop down menu to publish your post to blog. At the first time you have to setup your blog connection with Google Docs. The following setting should be maintained.
