I need to allow users to post from a link in the top nav bar of this Wordpress site http://frugalmule.com/category/blog/.

Ideally posting would require approval but once approved, would give them an anonymous identifier of some sort.  The first step though, is just giving them the ability to post here http://frugalmule.com/category/blog/.

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Any number of form plugins can create a post:

GravityForms
NinjaForms
Formidable

Not sure if Contact Form VII can do it or not, but that would be the free option.

AH said the blind man.  We have formidable.  I'll give that a try.  Thank you!!!

As an afterthought, has anyone had any success getting the google forms to do this?

Interesting using Formidable.  I have created the Create a Post form and configured the posting options for it.  The last step is to create the sub-menu item under blog at www.frugalmule.com.  I'm having trouble with that.

I would create a sub-menu item called Post and have it go directly into the form where they would be able to create a new post complete with captcha.

Google can't post to WordPress sites directly.  You might want to look into IFTTT (If This Then That) or Zapier to get that kind of cross platform automation.

Are these questions or progress reports?

Jason, to answer your question, they were follow-up comments.  Thank you for your help!  Lot's accomplished.   What I did was create a new page called posts and then subsequently pasted the short-code for that form into the page to get the page to appear.  It worked perfectly!
