We are up to day 6 of the ProBlogger 31 Day Build a Better Blog Challenge. We are going a little slower than we'd like to, but we are confident that the challenge will improve our skills. Our end goal is to deliver better content to our readers.
Our challenge for the day is: Get your blog mobile friendly. After listening to the PBBB 06 podcast, we understand that this is a large task and will be an ongoing effort. We understand the importance of having a mobile friendly site. Almost 48% of our Google Adsense Revenue over the past 12 months, has come from mobile devices.
Revenue generation is not our sole purpose, but it does show that our site needs to work well on both smart phones and tablets.
The Finance Guy website is run on a platform called squarespace. One of the reasons we chose this provider is that it uses responsive technology to ensure that the content we create will work on all platforms. We have less flexibility in the customization, but our site does work on all platforms. We need to work on finding the right blend that presents well on all platforms.
Mobile friendliness is essential for any website hoping to be successful in modern times. We are a small operation and this website is being run as a hobby. We are happy to let Squarespace deal with the mobile friendliness so we can continue to focus on content.
If The Finance Guy grows substantially, this may change in the future. This has been a task which we have more or less brushed aside, but the information we've learned is still valuable and we look forward to what is ahead on the PBBB Challenge
