It has come to my attention that this blog is now available for subscription on your Kindle. (I hope that you, unlike me, are lucky enough to have one.) Not only that, but yesterday this very blog reached best seller status, achieving a rank of #16 on the Lifestyle and Culture Kindle Blog list. As my daughter used to say when she was a small child, exigun! (That's "exciting" for those of you who do not speak small-childese.) It gives me the merest hint of what having a best-selling book must feel like. Note I said merest hint.
Of course, by today Wordstrumpet was down to #30, alas. And no, I'm not checking the stats every half hour. Only every hour.
I have absolutely no idea how the blog got picked up by Kindle or how long its been available or what the true sales figures are (for all I know having one subscriber could make it a best-seller). At the moment I'm trying to figure out if Amazon has connected my blog with my Associates account so that I can collect royalties.
Just as with regular books on Amazon, readers can write reviews of the blog on Amazon. Poor little ole Wordstrumpet has no reviews yet. Nary a one. So if any of my loyal readers want to post one, I'd be very grateful. The link is here.
And for anyone reading this on a Kindle, give me a shout-out. I'd love to hear how the text and images come through. And thanks for subscribing.
Stay tuned for my end of the year wrap-up and look forward tomorrow.
