Guest post is probably one of the most important tasks that you face as a blogger in terms of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Unfortunately, it’s not that easy to find guest posting opportunities. Most of the big sites that are out there no longer allow people to post guest posts. This probably has to do with the fact that some people out there look for shortcuts and end up submitting plagiarized content. So, what do you do? The good news is that there are guest posting services that you can use to get the much sought after backlinks. So, why would you even need to hire professional guest posting agencies?

The competition is stiff

Even where guest posting opportunities still exist, you will be competing against big websites and blogs. These sites usually have professional writers on the books. It will, therefore, be very difficult for your to compete with these big players in terms of content quality. So, what can you do to overcome this challenge. The good news is that you can hire professional guest posting companies that are able to provide you with the high quality content that you need to compete with the big players.

Guest posting companies will get your content on the right places

This is another reason why brands should consider hiring the services of professional guest posting companies. If you want to get guest posting opportunities on the right places, you need the help of these companies. Guest posting is what they do best, and they will be able to get your content on high DA sites, which helps boost your SEO. They have build up the needed connections over the years and are able to to so.

Build your social media presence

One way of ensuring that you grab guest posting opportunities is by building your social media presence. Most people will take your content if you offer them something in return. You can, as an example, offer to share their sites with your social media followers in return for them accepting your guest posts. This is something that a lot of people out there do.

However, you do need to have a vibrant social media following to make it work. You are not going to be able to do so if you only have a hundred followers on social media. You need to have thousands of followers to make it worthwhile for the sites that you are wooing. Otherwise they will just ignore you. Anyway, there are many ways through which you can build your social media presence, including by providing relevant content.

Offer people guest posting opportunities in return

Most people fail to find guest posting opportunities because they have nothing to offer in return. In order to get people interested in giving you backlinks, you need to be able to offer them opportunities to get links in return. Of course, you cannot offer reciprocal linking. That’s not allowed by Google. However, if you have 2 sites, you can offer them a guest posting opportunity on the other site in return. That way, they will be getting something in return and they will be much more willing to offer you guest posting opportunities.

Use Google to Find Relevant Sites

So, how do you find the right platforms on which to guest post? Well, actually, you can simply carry out a search on Google to find relevant sites in your niche. Let’s say you have a site covering the best Bluetooth Headphones 2020. Carry out a search on Google and you will find relevant sites such as Headphones Jack. You can then reach out to this site for guest posting opportunities. Try to find sites that are not your direct competitors, however. Otherwise, they are not going to offer you guest posting opportunities.

Check out comments on other sites

This is a strategy that I use quite effectively. What you need to understand is that Guest Posting is all about backlinks. And one of the strategies used by people to get backlinks is by leaving comments on other sites. So, you can read comments on other relevant blogs to find out who is desperately looking for backlinks. Heck, you can even reach out to people who spam your own site with comments. They will usually be willing to exchange guest posts. Talk to these people and they will provide you with opportunities for guest posts!

Should I Upgrade my Kindle Paperwhite? https://besteinkreader.com/should-i-upgrade-my-kindle-paperwhite/ https://besteinkreader.com/should-i-upgrade-my-kindle-paperwhite/#respond Tue, 02 Jun 2020 21:05:45 +0000 https://besteinkreader.com/?p=498 I recently had a bit of a debate with people on Reddit after suggesting that there is really no need for anyone to upgrade their Kindle Paperwhite. “Akindlepaperwhite is akindlepaperwhite,” I said.

I recently had a bit of a debate with people on Reddit after suggesting that there is really no need for anyone to upgrade their Kindle Paperwhite. “Akindlepaperwhite is akindlepaperwhite,” I said. It’s just an e-ink reader and there is nothing much that the manufacturer can do to make it better. Well, I didn’t know that I was provoking some people. After a few hours of debate, I had to call for a ceasefire. But the whole affair taught me a few things. If you are wondering whether or not to upgrade your Kindle, then here are some of the takeouts that I got from the debate. Hope they will help illuminate things. Whatever you decide, not that you can get 20% off when you trade in your Kindle e reader using the banner below.

Why trade in your Kindle Paperwhite?

We live in a world of gizmos, and manufacturers make money by convincing people that the perfectly functional gadgets that they bought last year or the year before that have become obsolete. No sooner do you buy that latest iPhone or Samsung phone than “leaks,” start appearing online about the new version that will soon be coming out. Now, I am not one to be had. As long as my phone works the way I want it to work, I am not going to upgrade it. I had a Samsung Galaxy S2 for over 6 years and only let it go when it broke apart. It didn’t bother me that by then, the Galaxy S was on it’s 7th or so iteration. As long as my phone worked, I was happy with it. And the Galaxy S2 was really a good phone.

My Kindle Paperwhite

I bought the Kindle Paperwhite on a whim. I used to read Kindle books using a tablet or on my computer, but that tended to something of a pain in the eye. The glare on those devices does not make for very good reading. Anyway, one day I was reading about e ink readers and I got interested in the Kindle. Moments later, I had placed an order for mine on Amazon. Or was that eBay?

Anyway, I own the 2017 version of the Kindle Paperwhite. That’s the previous from the latest model. It’s the one that comes with a raised bezel. Buying this thing has been something of a negative for me. See, the Kindle has turned me into more of a bookworm than I already was. It appears I am always reading something or the other, which can be annoying to those around me. If you don’t already own an e reader, then you are missing out on a lot. I mean, the device is a true marvel for the following reasons;

  • You don’t get glare when reading books.
  • The device can hold thousands of books.
  • Books can be read anywhere and at any time. In fact, you can read your books even in direct sunlight without worrying about straining your eyes.
  • E readers are highly portable. You can read your books on the train, on a plane or anywhere else.

Prompts to trade in my Kindle

The latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite is from 2018. As said, I own a previous version Kindle. My debate on Reddit was provoked by the fact that I sometimes gets prompts on my Kindle to trade the device in for the latest version. Apparently, I can do so at a discount. This is what I mentioned on Reddit, along with the statement that I am not going to upgrade anytime soon because my device works very well, thank you! From the debate that ensued, I learnt some of the following things;

Should I upgrade my Kindle?

  1. People on Reddit have no sense of humor. I mean, my statement was meant to be provocative, but I ended up being bludgeoned.
  2. One of the reasons why people tend to upgrade is the issue of battery. Though you may be happy with your current device, the fact remains that the battery on these gadgets is non removable. What this means is that once it begins to die, you will need to get a new gadget. I suppose, there are ways of getting a new battery if you are tech savvy. Otherwise, it may be better to simply trade-in your current Kindle for a new one.
  3. Another reason why you may wish to upgrade is the issue of screen resolution. If you have earlier version Kindles, then they will have DPI of less than 200. The current Kindle Paperwhite has a DPI of 300. Apparently, this is very noticeable and makes the upgrade worthwhile. Well, in my case, as I pointed out on Reddit, the 2017 Kindle Paperwhite actually has a DPI of 300, which is similar to that on the latest version. So, I am unlikely to benefit should I decide to upgrade.
  4. People also tend to upgrade their Kindles to the latest version because they are looking for waterproofing. The latest Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof and this is a big draw for some people. Well, not for me. I mean, I don’t intent to read books in the rain or in a pool any time soon. The waterproofing is just one marketing gimmick, in my view. I am not going to buy a new device for the waterproofing.
  5. The new version of the Kindle Paperwhite has a bezel that’s flush with the screen. This is another draw for some people, from what I heard. In my case, it’s actually a drawback. One of the things that I like about my device, the 2017 Kindle that has a raised bezel, is that the bezel actually protects the screen from scratches. Not that the screen is very scratcheable in any case. But I like to think that there is some protection there.
  6. Some people mention that they upgrade because of the bigger screen. I used to read books on a Samsung Galaxy S 2 so the 6 inch screen on my Kindle Paperwhite is more than enough. In fact, it’s nicely sized like a book. So, that’s no reason for me to upgrade.

So, there you have it. If you are wondering whether or not to upgrade to the latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite, the answer is, it depends on the version that you currently are on. In my view, there is really no reason for anyone to move from the 2017 version to the 2018 version. However, if you have an earlier than 2017 version, it may be time for you to upgrade. You can get a discount by trading in your current device using the banner below. So, what do you think? Feel free to leave comments. And talking about gadgets, here are the best Bluetooth headphones 2020. Also feel free to check out the standard headphone jack size if you want to learn more about headphones.

If you use the Kindle Paperwhite, then you will be interested to know that the device comes with a number of themes that allow you to change the way things look on your screen. I know, most people are not aware of this fact. However, you may wish to experiment with yours to make sure that you are getting the reading experience that best suited for your style. So, how do you change the Theme on a Kindle Paperwhite?

Changing Theme on a Kindle

To change the theme on a Kindle Paperwhite, you need to take the following steps;

  1. Tap on the top of your screen. This will bring down the menu.
  2. Click on “Page Display.”
  3. Next, you need to choose “Font and Page Settings.”
  4. Choose “Themes.”
  5. Select the theme that works best for you.

Available themes on a Kindle Paperwhite

The Kindle Paperwhite comes with the following available themes;

  • Compact
  • Standard
  • Large
  • Low Vision

Which option should I choose?

Nobody is going to prescribe the best theme option for you of course. It’s all going to depend on your preferences. Most people will likely stick with the default theme option, not because they are happy with it, but because they do not know that the themes on a Paperwhite can be changed. Anyway, you will notice that the “Custom,” theme does not appear on the above list.

You can see it, however, when you click on “Page Display.” What happens is, the moment you change the font or tweak with any of the other screen options on your Kindle Paperwhite, your theme becomes the “Custom,” theme. Later, I will show you how to save a custom theme that reflects your preferences in another article. What I can say here is that most people actually use the “Custom,” theme because they play around with the options on their screens.

The Kindle Paperwhite is a wonderful device. If you are as addicted to yours as I am to mine, then you will want to know everything there is to know about the device. One of the things that you are going to have to learn is how to change the font on a Kindle Paperwhite. Changing the font may become necessary if the one that’s currently default on your device does not quite agree with you eyes. Perhaps you would prefer to have bolder fonts. Anyway, the following are the available font types on the Kindle Paperwhite;

  • Palatino
  • Caecilia Condensed
  • Caecilia
  • Futura
  • Helvetica
  • OpenDyslexic
  • Bookerly
  • Baskerville
  • Amazon Ember
  • Amazon Ember Bold

Changing the font on a Kindle

In order to change the font on a Kindle Paperwhite, all that you need to do is the following;

  1. Go to the book that you are reading.
  2. Click on the top edge of the page. This will bring out the device menu.
  3. Click on “Page Display.”
  4. Click on “Font and Page Settings.”
  5. Choose the font that you want.

That’s how you change the font on a Kindle Paperwhite. The great thing is that as soon as you click on any of the fonts in there, the font will change. This allows you to assess whether or not the new font is to your liking without having to leave the page.

Which font do I use?

To those who are interested, I personally use the Bookerly font on my Paperwhite. I admit I haven’t really experimented with any of the other fonts. What I discovered while writing this article was that I like the bolder font types such as Hevetica and Amazon Ember Bold. However, I don’t think I am going to switch from Bookerly, which I have grown rather used to.

If you own a Kindle Paperwhite, you will know that the default reading orientation on the e-ink display is the Portrait mode. That is, while reading, you hold the device as you would a normal book. However, the great thing about reading on a digital device is that it provides you with a number of useful (or useless) tweaks that you can use to heighten the reading experience. You can, as an example, adjust the lighting and change the font type and size.  Another thing that you are able to do on a Kindle Paperwhite is change the orientation of the screen. This gives you the ability to read books in landscape mode. So, how do you change the page orientation on a Kindle Paperwhite?

Changing the page orientation

The change the page orientation on a Paperwhite, you need to take the following steps;

  1. Go the book that you are reading
  2. Click on the top edge of the screen to bring out the menu.
  3. Chose Page Display
  4. Choose Font and Page Settings
  5. Click on the Page tab.
  6. Under orientation, choose the orientation that you prefer.

What happens then?

Switching the orientation allows you to hold the Kindle Paperwhite on its side while reading your books. One of the benefits of doing this is that the device feels easier to hold in one hand on its side. I know, this is going to be down to personal preferences.  But at least, that’s how it feels to me. Surprisingly, you get more text on the screen when reading your books the normal way. So maybe landscape mode makes the font a bit bigger? Anyway, if that’s the case, it’s hardly noticeable. Anyway, that’s how to change the orientation on your Paperwhite to allow you to read your books in landscape mode.

One of the greatest things about the Kindle Paperwhite, or any other e-ink reader as a matter of fact, is that it offers users a wide range of customization options. The same could not be said of real books. If you are an avid reader like me, you will probably be ever on the hunt for ways through which to get the best out of your device. There are so many tweaks that you can carry out on the Kindle Paperwhite, including changing the font type and the font size, changing the screen orientation and changing the spacing on your screen. Another thing that you can do is change the page margins. This allows you to have either more or fewer text on your screen. So, how do you change the page margins on a Kindle Paperwhite?

Changing the Page Margins on a Paperwhite

To change the page margins on a Kindle Paperwhite, you need to do the following;

  1. Go to a page on the book that you are reading.
  2. Click on the top of the screen to bring down the menu.
  3. Click on “Page Display.”
  4. Click on “Font and Page Settings.”
  5. Click on “Page.”
  6. Under “Margins,” choose the mode that you are most comfortable with.

Available modes

The first mode that’s available on the Paperwhite gives you the greatest in terms of margins on the screen. The next reduces the margins while the last mode reduces the margins even further. This is the mode that I use on my Kindle Paperwhite. This last mode gives you a lot more in terms of text on the screen. However, you are free to choose any mode that you are most comfortable with.

Why increase the margins?

I don’t really know while anyone would prefer to have their screen restricted to a narrow band on the center of the device while reading. But then, it’s a matter of personal preference.

No, you cannot download apps on a Kindle Paperwhite. I was doing keyword research on Google and I came across this seemingly strange question. Apparently, there are many people out there who are looking to install apps on their Kindle Paperwhites. The query is only half strange because most of us are coming from the experiences that we get on tablets and on computers. The first thing that we do when we get new gadgets is try and make them better. And this process of enhancing involves putting on screen guards and buying cases for our devices. It also involves downloading apps onto our devices. If have bought an Android device, as an example, your first impulse will be to go to Google Play Store to get your favorite apps. But does this apply for the Kindle Paperwhite? Can you download apps on a Kindle Paperwhite?

No, you cannot download apps on a Kindle Paperwhite

Let me repeat here that no, you cannot download apps on a Kindle Paperwhite. With the Kindle, what you have is all that you are ever going to get. The only time that the software on the Paperwhite gets changed is when you get updates for the device.

Can you download apps on some e-ink readers?

Yes, there are some e readers out there on which you can download apps. A number of the large e-ink readers that are on the market come with Android. So, it means you are going to be able to go to the Google Play Store to get as many apps as you wish. However, the experience is necessarily going to be limited. Really, an e-ink reader is not a tablet. For one thing, most of them have low refresh rates. And they are all still back and white. So, even if you could watch videos on yours, the experience will not be the best. Examples of eBook readers that come with Android include;

Updating your Kindle Paperwhite

The Kindle Paperwhite is not given to gimmicks. Amazon wants you to read books on there and you are only going to be able to do so if you have minimum disruptions. Of course, the Paperwhite comes with a browser and you can get connected to the internet. However, the thing was probably only put there so you can buy books off the Kindle Store. You can browse the internet on it, yes, but the experience is going to be poor.

Now, when it comes to updates for the Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon occasionally rolls these out. However, as far as I have noticed, they haven’t really changed anything that significant during one of these updates. In fact, my Kindle Paperwhite gets updated, and I don’t even know what has changed.

So, if you are holding up hope for major updates as is the case when a new version of Android gets released, then you are in tough luck. So, there you have it. You cannot download apps on a Kindle Paperwhite. And I honestly don’t see why you would want to do so. Why spoil the amazing reading experience by installing apps on the device.

If you are an avid reader like me, then chances are high that you sometimes get lost in your Kindle Paperwhite. I mean, I love Science Fiction so much that I sometimes forget to do anything else while reading about hyperspace engines and time travel paradoxes. But then, that’s the life of a freelancer. You get so much time on your hands that you have virtually all the freedom in the world to do what you want. Anyway, the great thing about the Kindle Paperwhite, which is my default reading device, is that it gives you a lot of options that allow you to customize how your screen appears. One of the things that you may wish to do is show the clock on a Kindle Paperwhite while reading. But how do you go about doing it?

Show the clock while reading on a Kindle Paperwhite

To show the clock while reading on a Kindle Paperwhite, you need to take the following steps;

  1. Go to the book that you are reading.
  2. Click on the top edge of your screen. This will bring down the menu options.
  3. Click on “Page Display.”
  4. Click on “Font and Page Settings.”
  5. Click on “Reading.”
  6. Next, you need to click toggle the screen to “On” on “Show Clock While Reading.”

What happens when I do this?

Now that you have chosen this options, you will see a clock telling you the current time on the top of your Kindle Paperwhite’s screen. This can be useful, if you are one of those people who, as already noted, are liable to getting lost while engrossed in one book or the other. However, showing the clock can also be a distraction. I personally prefer to keep it hidden. I want to have as little clatter as is possible on my screen while enjoying my books by the beach. It’s a matter of personally preference, in any case.

Let’s get one things straight: You are are a thief! That’s what you are! Kindle Books are affordable. That’s particularly the case when it comes to novels. There are so many self publishing authors out there that the competition in terms of pricing tends to be rather fierce. I know, the whole thing is probably not the best of scenarios from the point of view of writers, but the fact remains that you can find novels in any genre for as little as 99 cents on Amazon. Not only that, but, if you know where to look, you are likely to find books on the platform that you can read absolutely free of charge. In spite of this, you will still find people looking for pirate books. But I am not here to judge you. A question that I get a lot from people regards whether or not Amazon will penalize them for having non-Kindle books on their machines. If you download a pirated book onto your Kindle, are you in danger of having your Kindle bricked?

Is it possible to have non Kindle Books on a Kindle?

This is a subject that I tackle in another post. The only thing that I can say here is that, yes, it’s quite possible to read non Kindle books on a Kindle. Your books only need to be in the acceptable formats. These are mainly the MOBI and PDF formats.

Kindles do not take EPUB files. The good news is that there are hundreds of platforms on the web that you can use to convert books from one format to the other. So, if you have EPUB books; or books in any other format; you can easily convert them to the MOBI format using one of these tools. And the conversion usually takes only a few seconds.

Will Amazon Penalize me for putting non-Kindle books on a Kindle?

So, will you be penalized for putting pirated books onto your Kindle? Will Amazon brick your Kindle as punishment? The answer in NO! It’s true, Amazon probably can tell if you have non-Kindle books on your Kindle. However, there is no way for Amazon to know whether or not the books were purchased from some other genuine, non-Kindle source. Perhaps you got your books from Kobo or from Nook. I don’t think it’s possible for anybody to know. What it means is that you can safely have pirated books on your Kindle.

Should you read pirated books?

As an author, the prospect of having my books pirated is one that scares me. It takes so much effort and time to come up with something that is readable that it doesn’t seem fair that there are some people out there who simply download books from the internet without paying for them. If an author is offering a book free of charge, that is well and good.

But for anyone to pirate books is inherently unfair. It’s the same issue that happens with music. And there, we have had instances where hefty fines were slapped on offenders. So, no, I don’t think anybody should stoop to the level of pirating books. As mentioned at the start, books are cheap enough. There is really no need for anyone to pirate them.
