Make Your Blog Available to Amazon Kindle Users

Did you realize that Amazon Kindle users can subscribe to blogs on their devices? And while there is a cost to the user of $1 per subscription, it comes with some perks: full blog posts are available and the user can download the entire blog for offline reading.

So how do you get your blog up on the listings to be accessed by Kindle users? Here's how:

1. Make sure you have a RSS Feed that includes entire posts (see a recent Facebook Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers article on Feeds). Your feed should also be ad-free.

2. Complete an interest form over at Amazon. There is an approval process for the blogs listed for Kindle users.

3. Another option, since there seems to be a huge backlog of blogs waiting to be approved, is to work with Newstex, an Amazon partner.

Another benefit: you as the blog owner can receive 30% of the subscription revenue per Kindle user.
