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.
