Add Your Blog to Amazon Kindle for Blogs

| November 12, 2010 | 13 Comments

While combing the internet instead of writing, I came across a post on the Make Money with Your Brain blog  about adding your blog to Kindle.

So, of course I went over to Amazon and accessed the Kindle Publishing for Blogs page to check it out.

Quick and Easy Kindle Sign Up Process

It took me about 15 minutes to create an account. Those 15 minutes included taking a screen capture of my blog and copying the logo to upload to the Kindle Publishing interface.

Once you provide the necessary information such as name, address, blog URL, blog feed, your own address and, of course, your Tax ID and bank information, you’re pretty much good to go (no, you can’t use your Amazon affiliate sign on to access the Kindle blog signup). It takes about two days for them to review and approve your blog.

Kindle Blog Subscriptions

The Kindle blog subscription fee is $1.99 and I get 30% of that. No, I won’t get rich off of 30% of 1.99, but it is a nice way to get additional exposure.

When I first added my blog, I was able to preview how it would look on a Kindle. It appears that the ads don’t display, but that’s okay, NJFM isn’t much of a money maker anyway. I guess my true excitement would be if someone is actually willing to spend $1.99 to subscribe.

Go check it out. If you have a blog, you have nothing to lose (sign up is free) and much to gain.

    Hi Felicia,

    I was just wondering how the Kindle thing was going now that it has been a few months. Any traffic increase?

      Hey Ken, I completely forgot all about the Amazon Kindle. Guess it really didn’t make any difference at all.

      After seeing your comment I checked and saw I had one subscriber.

    Hi Felicia,
    Thanks for the great info.
    Would it be possible to gather a bunch of
    articles from your blog and then create
    an ebook and then sell it on Amazon?
    Just Wondering…
    Thanks again,

    • Felicia says:

      James, I’ve found ebooks and posts online showing folks how to take their old blog posts to make books out of them. If you have enough material sure you can take your old blog posts and make a book and sell it on Amazon.

    What an awesome idea. Can Kindle users access the Internet? I mean, would they be able to click on outbound links?

    • Felicia says:

      Yes, the Kindle can access the internet. I don’t have one, but they must if they’re going to view my blog (that’s if anyone is willing to pay money to subscribe for something they can view for free). 🙂

    Wow.. this looks and sounds really neat.. Let me see if its open for non US blogs too.. Thanks for sharing this Felicia.

  5. Stacy says:

    Thanks for letting us know about this, Felicia! I didn’t know that Amazon was doing this! I cracked-up at your first sentence, by the way: “While combing the internet instead of writing…” That was a good one! Haha!

  6. Kenneth Crawford says:

    I have never heard of this. It sounds like neat. Does it upload automatically when you post or is it something you have to add manually? It looks like it might be great for exposure, just too bad it doesn’t allow your links. I would be very interested in hearing more about your experience with it once you have used it for some time.

  7. Deanna says:

    I just tried the link and it doesn’t work – just so you know.

  8. Deanna says:

    This sounds really interesting. I love how you find all these neat things and share them with the rest of us. I’ll go check it out.

  9. TIffany says:

    Thanks for sharing this Felicia, I will definitely check it out for my own blog.

    BTW, there’s a typo in your link to the Kindle Publishing to Blogs page. 🙂
