My mother has talked about and looked into purchasing a Kindle for herself for the past few months. We (Mom and I) decided we would look at them after Christmas to determine what the best version for each of us would be and then save up for it. Well….my husband was blessed with overtime so we decided to surprise Mom with her very own Kindle. Not only was she surprised but even more excited than we could have expected and then she saw the gift card too ~ she was one happy kiddo this Christmas.
We charged it for her so all she needed to do was register her Kindle, add her Kindle gift card to her account, and let her loose. She has a couple games and books downloaded but as we “searched” around the Kindle Store we noticed they have Blogs.
“Lisa, is your blog here?”
“I doubt it but we can look...No its not. I wonder how this works.”
Famous last words of the first-born Type “A” personality. A short time later and some Internet searching it was determined I could link my blog to Kindle. Ed, my parents, and I discussed the process and “selling” my blog. I write for God, Heidi, and to help others – not to make money yet everything I do, costs me money. Our conversations were from the heart with all of you in mind.
“People can still follow your blog online for no cost, right?”
“Why would someone pay $.99 to follow your blog on their Kindle then?”
“It does allow the busy follower an opportunity to read whenever they have a chance because once I post, the update automatically appears on their Kindle.”
“Will they want to be bothered every day?”
“I have people asking me for daily updates but it isn’t available through my web provider yet, this helps me meet the needs of my readers.”
“Are you doing it for the money?”
“No. I’m writing today for the same reason I started this journey in July 2010 ~ for God, Heidi, and to help others. What if this option opens my blog up to more people than I could ever imagine reaching? Like Ephesians 3:20 -21 tells us.”
“We didn’t think you were, just wanted to hear your answer.”
“I’ll pray on it.”
With discussions complete and some time in prayer, I completed the necessary information and submitted it to Amazon/Kindle before going to bed last night. I received an email stating if my blog was approved, it would be available in 48 – 72 hours. Less than 24 hours later…my blog is available through the Kindle.
If this is an option you are interested in:
1) Go to your Kindle Store on the Kindle or
2) Amazon.com - http://www.amazon.com/Lisa-M-Buske/dp/B006Q3ZE6U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1324942226&sr=8-1
Thank you so much for following my blog, for your feedback, prayers and support. Please know I am not trying to sell you my blog, it is available here online, for free daily yet some have asked for a way to be notified and have it on the fly due to your busy schedules. I hope this helps to meet your needs.
Note: To the best of my knowledge, at this time you can ONLY READ the blog on your Kindle – to post a comment or read the comments of others, you will have to access it through the Internet.
This post is not an attempt to sell Kindles and I am not receiving any payment from Amazon or Kindle for today's posting. This is an annoucement of my blogs availability via their device for $.99 a month if this is an option you are interested in.
