Now all bloggers can publish their blog on the Amazon Kindle Blogs Store. Previously there was a tedious way by which bloggers could apply for Kindle Blogs, but most never got accepted. Now there is hope …
Amazon has launched Kindle Publishing for Blogs in beta, which is a fast track self publishing tool to upload your blog for sale on Kindle Store. Now webmasters and bloggers can create an account, login and then add blogs for publishing to the Kindle Store. After review, there are chances that your blog will be published in 48-72 hours (it could initially take longer because of the initial rush).
After creating an account, it is very simple to add a blog. They ask for all basic blog details, blog category, and then validate your blog feed. Be ready with images of your screenshot (min 800x600px), and masthead / banner / logo (max 430x50px). Save and preview your submission, hit publish and you are done.
How much will you earn? Amazon decides the rate which is usually $0.99 per month for most blogs, and some top blogs can draw upto $1.99 per month. Amazon will share 30% subscription revenue with you. So even if you get thousands of subscribers, the monthly earnings will be little. Moreover, you get paid by check ($8 processing fee for US) or electronic bank transfer (in US only).

Getting listed in the Kindle Blogs Store will give your blog more exposure in the long run and also allow Kindle readers to read your blog if they want to.
