Most people have a cell phone or tablet these days. Whether you’re headed out for a coffee, hiking on a back trail, or sitting on an uncomfortable chair 30,000 feet as you zoom across the sky, chances are you have some piece of pricey tech on you. We live in a world which is increasingly dominated by mobile devices.
With this in mind, it’s a clear priority to position a blog to be easily read across the broad spectrum of devices on the market. Making use of the responsive themes available to WordPress users is an easy way to get a head start on the road to getting read all over.
I played with the “customize” on my own blog’s theme as well as a few others. With a few simple mouse clicks my blog squeezed and down-sized to the dimensions of a tablet screen, and then a phone screen. The page seemed to adapt well to the other two display sizes and flowed nicely. The key thing for me is that the page is simple and consistent across all platforms.
But what do you think? Could I bother you to check out my blog on your tablet or phone? If you do, leave a note and let me know how it goes! Many thanks ahead of time.
Right now I’m focusing on developing my About page, follow button, and making my Twitter feed more visible to first time blog visitors. There’s a learning curve to this, no doubt, but I’m sure I’ll get there. Everything about this blog, from the pictures I choose, to the idea behind it is a work in progress, kind of like me!
