Months and months and months ago – possibly as long as a year ago – I heard that you could publish your blog to Kindle. This would mean that people could subscribe to your feed for 99c, $1.99 or $2.99 or however much a month, and then every new post would be delivered in full wirelessly to their Kindle devices. I signed up for an account and did everything I was supposed to do, and then never heard anything about it again. The blog never appeared.
Then, this past weekend, I was searching Amazon for signs of my Self-Printed listing when this suddenly popped up:
The publication date on it is only last week, so it’s not like it’s been hiding here for the last year or anything: it just got published. I have no idea why now and why not months ago, when I actually submitted it, but hey – better late than never and all that.
To publish your blog on Kindle, you need to have a UK or US postal address. (This is where your cheques, should you ever get enough subscribers to reach the payment threshold, will be sent.) Go to Kindle Publishing (https://kindlepublishing.amazon.com), sign up for an account and follow the instructions – it’s pretty straightforward.
If you want to subscribe to Catherine, Caffeinated on your Kindle, it’s $1.99 a month with a free 14-day trial and you can subscribe to it here on Amazon.com’s Kindle store and here on Amazon.co.uk’s Kindle store.
