For those of our US-based friends who blog, you'll be especially delighted by this news:
Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (DP) which allows self-publishers to upload their e-literature (e.g. e-books and e-articles) to Amazon.com's Kindle store, for sale on Kindle devices, is now accepting blogs.
This new service is called Kindle Publishing for Blogs.
(The Amazon Kindle is a portable e-book reader which wirelessly connects to the Internet and allows users to access and store e-literature from Amazon's Kindle store).
This means that your blogs' RSS feeds will now be readable on Kindle, Kindle for PC, Mac, Android, iPhone, iPad and Blackberry.
This means that through Kindle Publishing for Blogs, your blog will get wider distribution - to Kindle customers.
Moreover, you'll get paid each time users access your content.
Amazon Kindle Publishing for Blogs is a bit mum re the revenue you'll receive as a blog publisher, but you do get 30% of the subscription fee they charge your blog's subscribers to access your content.
Just check your revenue reports to see just how much you receive per subscriber.
