I was fortunate to be contacted from the business development team at Docstoc.com. They offer a 'complete blogger's toolkit' and here is a brief of their tools:

Tool #2: Our newest tool is called Docshots and it turns any document link into a hoverable link that enables a feature-rich pop-up window. It is great for incorporating documents of any kind into a post without consuming site real estate.
Tool #3: Finally, we are also thrilled to announce our recent partnership with Lizzer, a great new bookmarklet that makes it easy to insert links and embed a variety of content (i.e. Docstoc Documents) into your blog posts or web-based email. Lizzer also lets you use your Docstoc account login information to easily access and embed all of your saved Docstoc Documents wherever you are on the web."
