Ways bloggers get paid by Amazon

If you want to buy one of those new Kindle devices from Amazon, please do so by clicking this link: Kindle: Amazon’s New Wireless Reading Device. Why?

Because then I’ll get a few bucks back for each one you buy. If I read my email right, Amazon is paying bloggers $40 for each one sold. That’s pretty darn cool.

The price to you doesn’t change. But, if you don’t want me to get some money, then visit Amazon’s home page by typing http://www.amazon.com into your browser window.

It’s not the only way I’ll get paid, though.

If you buy a Kindle and you buy my blog. It looks like I get 30% of that fee.

Anyway, thanks Amazon for all the cash! (I’ll need it, cause I just bought my own — it will be here tomorrow).

  1. You can read different format files on a Kindle, but according to Amazon:

    “PDF conversion is experimental. The experimental category represents the features we are working on to enhance the Kindle experience even further. You can email your PDFs wirelessly to your Kindle. Due to PDF’s fixed layout format, some complex PDF files might not format correctly on your Kindle.”

  3. You guys questioning whether this thing is worth 400 bones need to calm down. This device is catered to the rich, like most tech, and they can very easily afford it. You guys act like newcomers to this blog. This blog is about two things:
    1. Web services that are free, but mainly attractive to tech geeks.
    2. Electronic gadgets targeted at those with high disposable income.

    This blog isn’t about the common Joe, so don’t complain about coverage of items that aren’t targeted to the common Joe.

  5. I’m SHOCKED and disappointed in you true geeks out there… especially the ones complaining about having to pay a monthly subscription fee for each RSS feed you want to subscribe to (and use via the Kindle)…

    There’s a much cheaper alternative to Amazon’s blog subscription fees…

    Create a simple script (host on your server somewhere) that pulls new posts from all the RSS feeds you want — even if it’s 100,000 of them. Have the script take that data, arrange it anyway you want, and create a Word document. Then have the script automatically email this document to the email address of your Kindle — Amazon’s system will process the doc and ‘beam’ it to your Kindle automatically at a cost of 10 cents.

    If you set the script to check all your favorite RSS feeds ONCE per day (and update your Kindle then) it’s a great total $3.00 per month. If you want it to update twice a day, it would be $6.00 a month. Again, this could be for 1,000+ RSS feeds. *OR* you could have your Kindle update only every other day… that would reduce the cost to a mere $1.50 a month.

    If there’s a will, there’s a way.
