THESE INSTRUCTIONS HAVE BEEN UPDATED ON MAY 24, 2012. THEY SHOULD WORK AGAIN :) 

If you'd like to put a Google Apps slideshow in your blog, it's easy to do. Here's how.
  1. Open the slideshow you want to include in your blog post
  2. Under the "FILE" option on your menubar, choose the option called "Publish to the web"
  3. In the window that appears, click the Start Publishing button. 
  4. You'll be asked to confirm your choice; click "OK".
  5. After choosing this option, you will have some choices to make about your presentation
  6. Use the Select presentation size dropdown menu to choose the preferred size of your embedded presentation. Choose the medium size setting for most blog posts. You can also choose to have the presentation move through slides automatically, or restart when finished. Those choices are up to you. 
  7. Copy the code that appears in the second box, titled "Embed code" (be sure to copy it all). 
  8. Open or return to your blog posting that you want the slideshow to appear in. Choose the Edit HTML tab, then paste the code you've copied into your blog;
  9. When you click on the Compose tag again, it should show up. 
Note: The image below is in a little bit different order than what you'll see, but the main areas should look pretty much the same.
