Using this SlideShare WordPress plugin by Joost de Valk.

Installation is pretty straightforward:

  1. Download the plugin.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file.
  3. Upload the “slideshare” folder to the plugins directory of your WordPress blog.
  4. Activate the plugin in the WordPress admin panel.
  5. Start embedding SlideShare presentations!

You simply have to copy-paste the code (for example: [slideshare id=415548&doc=brainrulespzreview-1211213300619507-9&w=425]) provided in the “Embed (wordpress.com)” section of the SlideShare presentation page into your blog post. The plugin does the rest.
