Just like web blogs, Mobile Web Blogs are meant to keep the world updated about your recent or current condition, status, events, happenings or anything that you want to share with the people. And, with the popularity of mobile phones at peak, today a lot of people use Mobile Blogs for different purposes. For example- a photographer uses it for uploading his pictures; a business uses it to promote its products or services, and so on. This practice enables businesses to interact directly to their target customers and thereby increase sales and profit; plus establishing their identity in people’s mind.
Research shows that mobile phone usage is a hot trend in the market; it is used for various purposes, like sending, SMS, e-mails, and the latest trend, ‘browsing’. Experts suggest that to prevail in the market, a business must possess a mobilized website (Mobile Website). In a mobile, Internet works much like it does in a computer or laptop. The only difference is that, here the screen is small. When the user requests for a Mobile Blog or any page, it is retrieved from the web and then converted into a format compatible for a mobile phone.
There were times when designing a mobilized blog was an arduous task, considering the limited features of mobile phones, but things have changed as Smart Phones like iPhone and Blackberry have conquered the mobile phone market. Actually, designing of a Mobile Web Blog is extremely easy and expects systematic strategy from the web designers and further take few things into account, like general behavior of the user, current trends, challenges, and more. A web designer should further ensure that the Mobile Blog works smoothly with all types of Smart Phones and mobile browsers.
Conventional websites are formatted to be compatible with mobile phone screens and at the same time, simplicity is ensured by the web designers. To add a flavor to the blog, various advanced features are added, such as touch screen option, scroll down, one-touch access, and omitting minor spelling mistakes. In addition to this, the use of white space is given immense care while designing a Mobile Web Blog that decides the readability of the entire page.
