I decided to try my hand at publishing my blog on the Kindle Blog platform just to see what happens. Anyone can submit their blog through Amazon’s Blog Publishing platform as long the blog provides good quality content, and has a niche.
Accessibility and Technology Geek is a disability awareness blog. I write about how various devices such as the Kindle, iPhone, iPad, etc are being made accessible for people who have vision loss, hearing loss or mobility impairments. I have friends share their own personal thoughts and experiences so that the blog has a variety of different voices and viewpoints.
The new gadgets, including the Kindle, can be considered assistive technology themselves, and have made great strides in recent years to allow people with disabilities to access them right along with everyone else. The Kindle includes large font sizes, audio, excellent text to background contrast, and an accessibility plugin for the Kindle for PC application.
One of the reasons why I published AccessTechGeek to Kindle Blogs is to make the blog itself a lot more accessible. With the Kindle, it can be read anywhere. Plus, the Kindle fonts can be enlarged pretty big, so it is a easier reading experience. Sometimes I find that the glare of the computer screen can be really hard on my eyes. So, reading it on the Kindle can bring some relief.
The blog content is updated daily. If you just want to give AccessTechGeek a trial run, there is a 14 day free trial for just signing up.
