Create a contact form

We see different tyupes of forms on the web sites. Contact form, Sign up forms, Suggestion forms, etc. But creating such form on a Blog is something many bloggers don't know. With Google Docs, it is a matter of minutes now. The post explains in a few simple steps.
  1. Login to your Gmail account. If you don't have a Google account, create one. It is free.
  2. On the top left of the Gmail interface, you see the links for other Google services like Docs, Calendar, Orkut etc.
  3. Click Docs. It opens in a separate window or tab.
  4. Click "Create New" and click 'Forms' in its sub menu.
  5. You can create a new form using the friendly interface.
  6. Save the form. 
  7. In the "More Actions" menu, you will see the "Embed" sub menu. Click it.
  8. You will see the embed code. Copy that code.
  9. Paste that code on the page or post of your blog 
  10. Lo! you have the form ready on your blog.
  11. When the user submits the information through this form, the data is captured in a Google Excel sheet associated to it. You can see this Excel sheet in your Google Docs.
 Should you have any doubts on this process, please write to us using the comments form of this post.
