Today’s Kindle tip has to do with re-purposing your content. Many Kindle guides I’ve read say to re-purpose your articles or blog posts into a Kindle published book. That is not a good idea.
As a rule of thumb, what you can’t do safely is upload anything that has been published before — and that includes public domain books you’ve re-written, articles you’re re-purposing or PLR (private label rights) material as new.
The only time you can “re-purpose” with Amazon Kindle (and that’s without re-writing or re-formatting) is if you are already a recognized publisher and you wish to format your titles for Kindle. You would do this with Kindle Publisher Tools.
Individual authors, however, need to use Kindle Direct Publishing.
From my personal experience, about 4 months ago KDP ask me to remove a book I had published, because some of the material was from articles I had previously published online. While they may not notice it immediately, KDP stated that they did not want “information published that was freely available online.”
I would say that is something to keep in mind, and if you have a blog, you might be better off doing a blog publication with KDP, rather then publishing your content as a stand alone Kindle title.
