My Mobile-Friendly Blog… and My Own QR Code!

I posted a QR (Quick Response) Code for my MarketingChick.com website to my facebook wall about a month ago… Gosh, was I excited to finally have one of those ugly, funky, square squiggle things of my own! I even downloaded a qr code reader app and went scan happy for a little bit 🙂

However, it was quickly brought to my attention that having a qr code for your website is pointless unless it’s been optimized for mobile viewing because traditional, non optimized sites are ginormous and difficult to read/navigate using a mobile device. *sad face*

So I finally grabbed the WPtouch Pro plugin for my blog… played around with it for a few minutes… and voila! My blog is mobile/iPad friendly!! Hurray!!!

It’s easy peasy to install and setup… and my blog looks super clean when viewed on my iPhone! Oh, and if you’re wondering, the mobile theme is totally independent from the theme currently used for your regular, “desktop version” of your site. Here, lookie >>>

And that qr code at the beginning of this post… I used the FREE qr code generator at http://goqr.me. Create unlimited qr codes, select your own colors, and NO registration required!

Okay, now before I close this up, I wanna give a shout-out to Shawn Warren who told me about WPtouch Pro and Rich Patt who kindly explained to me the importance of having a mobile version of your site. These guys are rock stars… gracias, mi amigos!!

Alrightie… if you don’t have a mobile version of your site, I suggest you whip one up… and WPtouch makes it simple! Then generate your qr-code for free at http://goqr.me!! Seriously, I pretty much do everything on my phone… dunno why it’s taken me so long to make my sites mobile friendly! Now, excuse me while I do this to all my sites 🙂 Ciao!
