Busy Webmaster? Embed Google Slides in your Website and they auto Update

If you are a busy webmaster or not so good with thick geeky code or hey, maybe your webmaster actually goes on vacation every once in awhile, then here's an idea for updating your content as often as you'd like:

  1. Get an account with Google (GMail takes about 30 seconds)
  2. Once you have an account, you'll be able to start a presentation in Google Slides.  Start a new presentation of one slide, then name it and in the GUI,  Next step ->  File -> Publish to the Web -> Embed.   Now, copy the embed code, send it to your webmaser and ask your webmaster to make a new page, using the embed code.
  3. Go back to your presentation and make your content, be it links, text, images.  Google Slides is pretty flexible and without spending much time poking the bear, seems to have SVG in its editor.  Very easy to use Editor.
  4. Now, set your permissions in Google Slides as Public and View Only.
Now, if you have a new link or other stuff you'd like to get up quickly, you can do so without hunting down your Webmaster.

Someone in my office is working on this right now for a page in the SVG Editor and since it is set up, I don't need to lift a finger
