When you start a blog, one of the first things you’ll do after choosing a platform is to look for a theme. A piece of terminology that you might come across while choosing a theme is “responsive”.
What Is Responsive Design?
Responsive design means that the blog can be viewed clearly and cleanly on any device. Basically, you blog will look just as pretty and be just as easy to read on a small smartphone screen as it will be on a large desktop screen.
Why Is Responsive Design Important?
Responsive design is so important! I’m sure statistics are available, but I’m not a statistical person. Basically, people who enjoy statistical research keep showing that more and more people are viewing blogs and websites of all kinds on smartphones, tablets or similar devices. Your blog needs to be able to be read by people, regardless of which device they are viewing your site from. This gets even more important if you are selling any kind of eProduct – people don’t want to buy if it’s too hard to put the payment details into the fields.
Do you know if your blog theme is responsive? Do you ever log out of your back end and see what your blog looks like to a visitor?
