SlideShare presentations, documents and videos can be embedded in Wordpress blogs by following the steps below:
Embedding SlideShare in Wordpress.org (self-hosted blogs)
If you are using Wordpress.org (i.e. you have a self-hosted version of Wordpress), just copy the embed code for Wordpress.org (which is the same as the default SlideShare embed code) in your blog post and publish it
If you are using the visual editor, you might face an issue copy/pasting the embed code in your blog post. If this happens, you should try to use the HTML editor instead
Embedding SlideShare in Wordpress.com (blogs hosted by Wordpress on their servers)
If you are using Wordpress.com (i.e. you have a blog that Wordpress is hosting for you on their servers), use the Wordpress.com short code instead of SlideShare's default embed code
If you are using the visual editor, you might face an issue copy/pasting the embed code in your blog post. In which case, you should try using the HTML editor instead
SlideShare does not support video embeds in Wordpress.com
If you are not certain whether you have a Wordpress.com or Wordpress.org blog, read this article.

Embed: If you have a Wordpress.org (self-hosted) blog, you can install the SlideShare embed plugin and directly use the SlideShare presentation URL to embed in your blog. Learn more here.
If you wish to use the Wordpress.com short code for embedding in your Wordpress.org blog, use this plugin (it is not created by SlideShare, but by an external developer, Joost de Valk).
