Mobile friendly

I just recently went through the challenging process of redesigning my website to make it more mobile friendly and responsive to viewers who use small hand-held devices for their communication processes. I had to redesign the banner element for my site and revise some of the basic codes in my css file and 53 PHP files that coordinate the display of my various pages with the resources that I have written. Of course this was a difficult process for a technical novice like me, but I had some help, and I was able to get it done. I think that the new design is more fluid than it was, yet it is still attractive and simple and easy to navigate. I invite you to check it out at http://www.christianityetc.org.

I’m an old retired writer who is still trying to make good use of my desktop computer with all of its various programs and their tools and a cell phone that I just know how to use as a phone. I have some messages that I’m trying to share with interested viewers, but I don’t claim that they are basically popular. I think that they are important, and I try to make them interesting and easy to read as I write them, but I’m not sure that I have a network of social friends who will promote them for me. So I’m wondering how you viewers and internet surfers use your mobile devices in your communication processes. What communication devices do you use for your serious search for helpful data on the internet? Are some of your devices just used as photo albums or electronic post-it-notes? What makes an article or a note on any “public” communication platform particularly helpful? What does that quality have to do with the technology of the device? Let’s talk about this.

  1. The Web site appears correct on my android smart phone. It takes effort to make a site well designed. Simple to use and maintain is a difficult challenge. but simple architecture allows for future enchantments. This comment was on my phone.

  2. Bob,

    I think you have done a great job revising your website. I know how difficult it can be to edit code. I don’t use Mobile devices much either. I think peoples attention span is dwindling away due to such devices and the vast amount of information available on the internet today. It’s difficult to grab the readers attention. It’s even harder to keep their attention since it’s used to moving along quickly with such devices. The average attention span is 8 seconds. That’s not to long to grab the readers attention. I think such devices are hindering people’s brain in the long run.
