Amazon Kindle owners: would you pay $2 per month to read my blog on your Kindle?
It’s not a theoretical question. Amazon now lets anyone publish their blog to the Kindle, so I submitted my own blog.
Amazon picks the price (free is not an option) and gives the blogger 30% of that. They set a price based on, uh, I’m not sure what it’s based on, but mine is $1.99 per month. $2 per month seems a little high given the quality of work that I’m doing (har har har).
We talked about it on Twitter, and my favorite response was from Tjay Belt, who said:
“Like I’m gonna spend $400 for a device to allow me to pay you a monthly fee to not read what I don’t read now for free.”
Amen. So now I put it to you, dear readers: would you pay $2 a month to read my blog – or any blog – on the Kindle?
