It’s not possible to attach files with your blog posts on blogger except you’re only dealing with images and videos. Unlike wordpress where you can freely attach files of all formats with your blog posts, you have to find an external file host to do this on blogspot. Maybe you have some games, softwares, zip files or some files in an uncommon format you intend to share with your blog readers, there are still alternative sites to use that provide free space to host these files.
There are so many file sharing/hosting sites you can use and these include hotfile, mediafire, rapidshare, megaupload and so on. I do use hotfile because they allow remote uploading. This means uploading files through file URL. With hotfile, I only need to have the download link of the file i intend to upload and the file gets copied to my hotfile file manager. Below is a complete list of file sharing sites I found you can use on your blog:
Though the service provided by these sites are free, there are certain conditions you must adhere to and if you fail to do this, your files will be deleted without informing you.
Hosting Your Files On Google
Another added advantage is that your file can be hotlinked, this means you can link directly to the file on your blog without showing your visitor any download page.
How To Upload Files To Google Sites
I wasn’t used to google sites at first and it took me some time to figure out how to upload files there and use it here on blogger. You need to create a Google Sites account account and create your first site.
-After this, go to the created site and click on the drop down menu at the top right of the page.
-Select Attachment from the links on the left side of the page
-Click on Upload, select the file and that’s it.
- When you’re done uploading, right click on the download link to copy it our. It might look like this:
Just delete the rest stuff after the file name to make it look like this.
You can as well mask the link as shown below:
You can now attach the direct link to the file with your blog posts. Like I said, Google Sites file hosting is only for small files. if you intend to host large files, try using the file sharing sites earlier mentioned.
