Mobify Me

myiphone Ever since the Charming and Beautiful Susan bought me an iPhone for Christmas, life has been different. This is the coolest gadget I’ve ever had. I hate to admit that a chunk of plastic changed my life, but it has. If you have one, you know this is true.

I love the access to the Internet it provides. I think it’s cool to pinch and flick your way across it’s small screen to browse the web. But the pages I like best are the ones formatted for mobile platforms. Therefore, I have been on a tireless search for a tool that would help me create a format for the sites I manage to be viewed on the iPhone. My missions blog is in Wordpress and a few plugins are available. I use WPTouch for the Wordpress sites I manage (1., 2., 3.). But what if my site doesn’t utilize Wordpress? I’m stuck.

Or am I? Enter Mobify. With Mobify, you can make any website or blog mobile AND make automatically viewable on mobile devices. It’s not painless; there’s a small learning curve. And there’s much more flexibility than with out of the box plugins. And you don’t have to go back to college (or if you’re like me, go to college), to make this work. Especially for a one page blog like this one hosted on Blogger.com. Simply mouse over the blocks you want, choose them, and create your mobile site. If you’ve been operating a blog for some time, you should be able to do this in a snap. If you run into a snag, tutorials and videos are available on the community section of Mobify’s site.

Now go, be geeky and hip.
