Author's Blogs on Amazon

If you haven't seen it, Amazon Connect is a new feature on Amazon that just recently went live. It's author's blogs hosted on the Amazon book page. It's a pretty neat idea, but I doubt that most of the people who are reading this would need to visit the Amazon page to track me down. :)

On the other hand, there are a lot of people who don't know what a blog is but would read a book page for reviews or a writer's comments. The Amazon Connect idea might open up author's blogs to a whole new audience. It also pushes out the blogs to the Amazon home page of people who've bought your book. It's a new way to keep in touch with your audience.

I've put a few posts up on the Ship It! A Practical Guide to Successful Software Projects page. Some of it is reposted content from this blog, but I'm starting to add new posts that are only for my Amazon page. I'm curious to see how it will turn out.
