You’ve heard of that Kindle thing, right?
You know that millions of people have those Kindles, right?
You know that you can quickly and easily publish your blog for those Kindles.. right?
Did you know you can even make money by publishing your blog for the Amazon Kindle? Yah, me either!
Publishing your blog for the Amazon Kindle is a great way to expand your potential reading audience and because it is so quick and easy to setup there really is no reason to not publish it. Better yet, you can actually generate income by putting your blog in the Kindle Store! That’s right! For each person that subscribes to your blog on their Kindle, you get paid anywhere from $0.99 to $1.99! Not very much, but hey, it’s free!
To publish your blog in the Amazon Kindle Store, click on over to the Kindle Publishing for Blogs page. Click the Create New Account link, enter your info, enter you blog info, and your payment info (for all that money you are going to make) and that’s it! After you submit your RSS feed and blog information, Amazon will review your blog and it should be available in the Kindle store within a day or so.
One Minor Issue That Amazon Needs To Fix:
There is one little problem though. Even though a human from Amazon will review your blog before it gets published in the Kindle store, at no point in the process does Amazon verify that you actually own the blog or have the right to publish it.
This means two things:
1) you can publish someone else’s blog and make money from it
2) someone else can publish YOUR blog and make money from it
Of course if someone complains or reports that you are publishing their blog without the legal right, Amazon will eventually close your account. How or if Amazon recovers any earnings is unclear.
Even if you don’t plan on publishing your blog in the Kindle store, it might be worth it to take 10 seconds and make sure someone else isnt already publishing it for you. You can search for blogs in the Kindle Store here: Kindle Blog Search
