Amazon Adds Kindle Self-Publishing for Blogs

May 19, 2009

Amazon went live with a beta program that allows bloggers to self-publish their content for the Kindle, using RSS subscriptions at Kindle Publishing for Blogs. Amazon keeps 70% of the monthly blog subscription fee and pays 30% to the blog author. This announcement comes a week after the release of the Kindle DX, the next generation of Amazon’s eReader. Amazon sets the sale price, and all of the blogs available appear to be priced either at 99 cents or $1.99 per month.
