The thing to consider when making your website more mobile friendly is size and usability. Obviously, the screen on a mobile device is significantly smaller than the screen for traditional blog viewing. With this in mind, you have to make your content more easily readable on a small (tiny) screen. By centering your content on every page, this will reduce the annoyance of scrolling when viewing these pages on a mobile device. You should center your text and images to ensure an easier read for your audience.
Shrink Page Size
The whole point of mobile internet is instant gratification. People use smartphones and other mobile devices so that they can access the things they want to see on the internet right then and there. For this reason, one of the biggest missteps in mobile web planning is having a slow loading blog. There’s nothing more annoying than a blog that loads really (really) slowly on your phone. To alleviate this problem make sure that each page of your blog is fewer than 10kb. The maximum page size for a mobile device is 20kb, so by keeping your pages well under that, you will ensure that your blog loads quickly.
Images always seem to cause problems with blog design be it on a mobile or traditional platform. While images are a great addition to traditional blog pages, they can cause some real issues in a mobile setting. Large pictures tend to look messy on mobile devices. They are usually too large to be viewed alongside text the way they are intended to. Furthermore, images can severely increase the amount of time it takes for your site to load on a mobile device. Cut back some on your image use to become more mobile friendly.
Obviously, Make a Mobile Domain
Lastly, (but nonetheless importantly) create a separate domain for the mobile version of your blog. This domain can help you keep all of the bells and whistles you want on your computer-based website and have a simple, clean version for mobile users. You can create this separate domain simply by adding a sub-domain to your current blog URL. Inform your readers that you have created a new domain for mobile users. They will appreciate your interest in their positive web experience.
