Embedding a PDF into your Blog

It took me about half an hour to figure this out.  I had to Google quite a bit until I found the link below:

From the site:


  1. Find the PDF file in Google Drive
  2. Preview the PDF file in Google Drive
  3. Pop-out the Google Drive preview
  4. Use the More actions menu and choose Embed item
  5. Copy code provided
  6. Edit Google Sites page where you want to embed
  7. Open the HTML Editor
  8. Paste the HTML embed code provided by the Google Drive preview
  9. Use the Update button and Save the page

What is crucial is clicking the "Pop Out" icon and then going to "More Actions" to get the embed code!
