If you want this spreadsheet to keep updating in your blog, you should just post an inline "iframe" with the published range you want inside it...
This way you wouldn't have to keep updating the .jpg...

Within google spreadsheets, just go to the publish pane and then "more publishing options" and from there choose the "html to embed in a web page" format... and select the range you want and "generate URL - which actually generates the iframe code in this case...
You can put that iframe inside a blogpost and it will keep uodating everytime you re-publish the spreadsheet - or automatically every 5 minutes if you selected that option on the pulish pane.
