I have found the solution myself. Google used to have a feature Publish to Blogs under Publish to the Web on Google Docs/Drive and it had the option I was looking for. But sometime back Google dropped this feature very quietly and now there is no direct way.

No, you cannot change it. If you do choose to create a new post and move the old content (best done by copy/pasting the HTML), then you could set up a custom re-direct from the old post to the new one, using the features recently introduced for this. Sometimes I just keep the old post, and put a note at the top saying to see XXX for an update. This is ...

You shouldn't use br elements for separating paragraphs. From the HTML5 specification: br elements must be used only for line breaks that are actually part of the content, as in poems or addresses. A paragraph should be enclosed in a p element. The div element doesn't add/change any meaning. At most it changes the styling of the content (via CSS; ...

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

One new option has just opened up at "Settings › Search preferences" in the Blogger interface: Detailed here, it looks like: Caveats Doesn't appear to allow redirection outside the domain Not clear what the mechanism of redirection is in an HTTP sense (although it should be easy to find out) Update: It seems you may now be able to specify a "permanent" ...

As the screenshot shows, you're currently in HTML editor view, which has only the options that you see. Click on Compose on top left of the editor to see other options.

I think that "Cross-posted on the Gmail Blog" on the page you refer to is just another way of saying "Same content also posted on the Gmail Blog". Some specific platforms (e.g. Usenet) have a built-in mechanism for "cross-posting" (e.g. a way of tagging content so that it shows up in more than one context). There is no such general mechanisms for the web, ...

You can insert ads into individual posts: the trick is to turn on show break-characters instead of blank lines (I tried to spell this out here, but the HTML got interpreted!) in the post options before putting the code into the HTML tab of the post-editor.

The best way to track subscriptions is through Google Feedburner, which redirects your RSS feed. The only downside is that if you're transmitting your feed elsewhere, say a tool that posts to your Twitter or Yahoo Pipes, those bots/scripts will show up as subscribers and will skew the results slightly.

Facebook automatically parses out some text it thinks is important from your website. Certain Open Graph Tags are respected to figure out what content to show. If you have control over the HTML on your blogspot website, I recommend placing a few Open Graph tags to give some meta-data about your page.

Yes, it's true. If you have a Google+ account, any image that is 2048 x 2048 pixels or smaller will not count against your total storage limit.

That is the link to the Google Drive image viewer, rather than a link to the image itself. If you check the URL for the image when you visit that link, you get an URL like: blob:https%3A//drive.google.com/32efcf38-d7e6-4656-9046-eede4c4880f9 That's not useful.
