Mobilize Your Blog

By John Jantsch

WINKsite I’m not sure if mobilize is a word, but if not, it will become one soon. Not because I used it, because the mobile device is getting more powerful, more common and more useful as a business tool.

Blog readers are now subscribing to and reading blogs using mobile phones and PDAs. From what little research I have done there is an entire version of HTML just for mobile reading. While converting all of your web pages, blog posts and RSS feeds to mobile standards may well make sense, it looks like a pretty big undertaking.

The service also allows you to create mobile content beyond your blog including journal entries, forum posts and lists of syndicated feeds.

But, that’s not really what this […]
