Inviting Guest Posts …

This blog gets 18 thousand unique visitors a month (quantcast). One of the things I’m really interested in is letting readers write guest posts so they can share -

  1. Their story.
  2. Their own Blog.
  3. Their book (published for the Kindle gets brownie points).
  4. A favorite blog or website.
  5. Something really interesting and/or thought provoking.

I’ve always had this in the back of my mind – however, i was reading Seth Godin’s blog and something he said brought it to the forefront. The gist of what i took away was – the internet is founded on and works much better when websites and platforms are open and take people to ‘other interesting websites and platforms’ as opposed to being a walled garden.

  1. If you are getting that many hits maybe you should consider starting a Kindle forum.

    You could break it up into sections. One for Kindle news, one for new discussing Kindle eBooks, and one for technical discussion.

    It is pretty easy to set up a forum (and there are many sites that allow you to do it for free).

    Just a thought.

  2. i’ll add something on this soon.

  3. Greetings! I just bought a Kindle and just found this blog (thanks to a fellow Kindle owners tweet!).

    How would we respond to your request?

    I’m a new author. Within weeks of having my book on Amazon, a Kindle owner (from the same town in Maine!) asked me to make it available as a Kindle edition. Which I did!

    To get a taste of my blogging “voice” (mixing metaphors? *grin*), my blogs are:
