How to integrate Google Sites with Blogger?

I'd like the users of my Google Sites website to move easily back and forth between it and my Blogger blog site.  Is there a good way to integrate them?

Go to the page you want your Blogger to show up on in your Site.

Edit Page.

Insert.

Go down to the bottom of the list and select More Gadgets.

Use search bar and type in Blogger.  Hit search.

Use embed Blogger.

This will insert a smaller version of you blogger on that page, to your size specs.  So, a page within a page.

It is possible to include a blogs content on a Google Sites hosted site through the use of a Google Gadget which displays the RSS feed. However, for SEO purposes this is non-optimal, as Google does not index Google Gadget javascript.

Why doesn't Google allow FTP? Is it for for security purposes and people hosting worms and drive-by trojans on Google Pages? If indeed that's the problem it's possible to host a trojan on Google Sites via the file attachment feature, but not the javascript. Couldn't Google just disallow all uploaded javascript except gadgets?

Everyone please sign the petition asking Google to integrate Google Apps/Google Sites and Blogger.

Sorry to butt in, but I found this on a Help search for "blogger."  I don't want to embed the entire blogger page into my web site, I just want the latest blogger entry on my front page, with a link (I can add that) to the full blog. Any ideas?

I would also really like to have "latest posts".  I want the latest post title and message to appear in a gadget on my google sites. seems like this isn't a crazy request...?

Yah, even just a generic way to integrate RSS Feeds as items. I use blogger, but embedding the site inside the page looks tacky. I like the look of announcements.

To get the latest blog entry to show on your Site's page, why not embed an RSS gadget and configure it to pull/read the data in your blog. You could have a link near it that could take people to the full blog if they wanted to comment, read more, etc.
 
Another idea would be to tweak the look of your blog so that it's just a smaller, narrower, "frameless" blog. It could then be embedded into a Site's page and still look fine. Any of the gadgets that you usually use in your blogs (eg: slideshow, links, etc.) would then be moved to the sites page that's embedding the blog.

My ultimate goal is to integrate Blogger completely in Google Sites. Sure you can use an iframe and point to your blog, but it's ugly.
 
tsinn, your workaround is the best around so far. Here's how:
 
Google Sites, Edit Page, Insert Gadget, "RSS_Feeds", Install, point URL to: http://BLOGNAME.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
