Licensed since 1977, I’ve been writing about the world’s greatest hobby for over a decade.
Kindle blogs are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you’re not wirelessly connected. And unlike RSS readers which often only provide headlines, blogs on Kindle give you full text content and images, and are updated wirelessly throughout the day
Wishing him well with the Amazon Blog format. Amazon imposes the minimum fee to “push” content to your Kindle.
Not having a Kindle it is hard to say if the format and subscription would work for me, though I rather doubt the cost would put off subscriber from a solid blog.
Yet it does mean a hefty monthly if one would subscribe to a number of blogs – I would expect I would be able to keep my costs down to $150-200 a year, which is more than I pay for my print radio magazines.
Regardless, this Blog “With Varying Frequency – Amateur Radio Ponderings” is content enough to just have your readership as it is.
