It's not as if I don't subscribe regularly to dozens and dozens of blogs via the kindle, in order to review them on a daily basis! Unfortunately, quite a few of the blogs have unsuitable Kindle feeds, or haven't been updated for a while. So that's one of the reasons why I haven't been updating this blog report as often as I'd intended.
(And it also shows the importance of subscribing to these blogs - just to take a look at them if nothing else! People put their blogs on Kindle with high hopes...they get only one or two subscriptions, and then the blog fades away. At a cost of 99 cents a month per blog, and with a 2 week free trial, there's no reason not to subscribe to a blog that interests you!)
I'll be getting back on track next Monday, with at least one and hopefully two blog reviews every other day.
Here's some blogs I've got sitting on my Kindle which I hopefully will be able to review instead of ignore...
(and several new blogs are being added every day and I'll get to them soon, too)

Amazon could encourage Kindlers to subscribe to Kindle blogs by offering Kindlers the option to be sent a free sample Kindle blog per (day / week / month -- the user would choose the frequency). Kindlers could opt in and/or out of various controversial blog categories like sex, politics, and religion.
And/or Kindlers could opt for being sent only a list of blog titles at intervals, from which they could choose up to six (say) titles for delivery. Users would have to “opt in” to subscribe; it wouldn’t be like the current “opt out” situation after signing up for a trial subscription.
This would be easiest to introduce on the KSO models. If KSO owners were rapturously happy with the offerings, Amazon would be justified in asking non-KSO owners if they'd like to sign up too.
