Create Direct Downloads on Your Blog

Ok, this is seriously awesome! While browsing around a zillion sites last night, I happened upon a new (for me) site on Google. It's a site where you can create your own website for free. Why should we care as bloggers? Well, you can also upload files to that site! AND...you can link those files directly on your blog!! Want to learn more? The video is below...


I would love to hear your thoughts, if it is something you'll be trying on your blog...and how it goes for you if you do try it out. I know I can't wait to link up my next file this way--I might just have to make something right now to try it out again! Take care and happy Sunday! :)

  1. Kristen,

    I have a website that I have linked with my blog. Website traffic is helping me get traffic to the blog...Although my website isn't free and it's much more time consuming working with html code, it's fun to have another outlet for sharing!

  2. This looks good. What do you think is the benefit to doing this as opposed to going to Google Docs? Is it because it is a direct download? Just curious.

    Teacher Tam, ya, I like having the direct link on the blog itself--I think it's a nice feature to have :)
