When I last looked at the Amazon Blogs, just after the Kindle 2.0 came out, there were no blogs available. Whispernet is rather pointless if there aren’t any books or blogs to get through it. But that is starting to change finally. A tweet from Erica Friedman about her Yuri blog Okazu being published on the Kindle made me take a look to see if there were any others. I was pleasantly surprised to see there were a few others.
People may ask, “Why pay for something you can get for free?” The answer is simple; convenience. The big innovation of the Kindle is Whispernet, the ability to get content delivered immediately. Getting a blog on your Kindle means you don’t have to constantly check if there’s an update. It comes to you, ready to be read. If you do subscribe to the Kindle edition of any of these blogs, give the bloggers feedback. Help them improve your reading experience.
