Blog Changes Affecting Paid Kindle Subscribers


This brief post only affects my Kindle Subscribers, those of you who have been paying .99 cents a month to subscribe to this blog so you could read it regularly on your Kindle.  I have appreciated your support over the years.

Unfortunately, Amazon is no longer going to support any blogs on Kindle.  As a result, I want to encourage all of you to follow my blog for free, by submitting your email address, using the "Follow This Blog" element on the right-hand column, to receive the latest posts by email.  I will not personally see the email addresses of those who follow my blog, unless you contact me directly and send me your email address.  Amazon automatically handles the email addresses which are submitted under the "Follow This Blog by Email" section.

You can also just save this blog to your "favorites" list and read the posts whenever you want.  It is updated at least once a week, usually on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

Either way, thanks so much to my paid subscribers for your years of support.  I look forward to having you continue to read my posts for free in the future!

Below is the letter I received from Amazon, explaining the changes:

Hello,

Thank you for using our Blog service to publish your Blog on Kindle. We are writing to let you know that on August 19, 2019 we are discontinuing support for all Blogs on Kindle due to low usage. Your blog(s) BABY BOOMER RETIREMENT will no longer be available for sale in the Kindle store and you will no longer be able to manage blogs through kindlepublishing.amazon.com. This change will not impact any related publications that you manage outside of Kindle. If you have any questions or believe you have received this communication in error, please reach out to us at newsstand@amazon.com.
