Hi,
I have talked to wordpress and added my RSS/ATOM feed address, which is correct, but it won't validate. Any advice???
Thank you in advance.

Added it to what, exactly? To the Author Central blog feed? To some feature on your WP blog? Somewhere else?

To sign up for Kindle Publishing for blogs. It is not validating even after WP help gave me the correct feed address.

Oddly, you explanation makes less sense than your initial question, as there is no such thing as "Kindle publishing for blogs."

Go to Author Central.
Go to the Author Page tab.
Click "add blog"
Paste the "blog feed address" into the field specifying your RSS feed (examples are provided)

If it does not work, they are incompatible or, more likely, you are not pasting in the correct information.

Good luck with your project.

Do you mean that you want to publish your blog through KDP and earn royalties for it, having it show up the blog section on Kindle devices? If so, this feature may have been discontinued (at least for indie authors).
