More and more people are surfing the web via mobile devices. It doesn’t matter if they are using a tablet or smartphone, you need to adapt your blog to their screen.

I believe in 2012, more and more blogs will be read through mobile devices, and also the amount of blogging being done on these bevices will increase, I think these 2 things go without saying. However, the one trend that is also starting to emerge slowly is blogs about mobile blogging.

Blogging About Mobile Blogging

If I had the time to start a new project right now, that’s what it would be about. You can take any blog out there and make adaptations of their posts about regular blogging to suit mobile blogging. Heck, you could even take famous products like the number one blogging product (31 Days To Build A Better Blog) and create 31 Days To Build A Mobile Blog, although I don’t recommend doing just that for copyright reasons and to keep a good reputation.

The Niche is Mobile Blogging, but don’t Forget the Micro Niche

You could choose to dive into the mobile blogging niche as a whole, or you can keep even more specific and deal specifically with tablets or smartphones, or even go a level deeper and choose a specific device (i.e. IPad).

Either way the same principals apply, but if you’re alone and only have one device it might be smarter to stick to that device since you’ll have a hands on approach which is always best.

Mobile Blogging is my End Goal

One of the goals I have for myself is to set up all my websites, blogs, business, services, and products so that I can manage everything through both my BlackBerry devices (Curve Smartphone and PlayBook Tablet).

It’s so much more convenient than getting out a laptop or using a computer. It’s more portable and faster.

What aspects of mobile blogging have you embraced already?

  1. Totally agree that more and more visitors to our websites are going to be from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. What’s going to be interesting is whether new methods, aimed to help us monetize our sites appear.

    Currently, (at least as far as I’m aware anyway!), most money making techniques for websites don’t really apply to visitors on phones and tablets. For example YouTube videos don’t show adverts as they’re not flash based, most articles are read in RSS readers or apps which strip out the adverts etc.

    I think there’s quite a market for developing a successful technique, just wish I could think of it myself!

    • I agree with you Ben, the options aren’t as available as I think they should be. I know there are some ad networks that offer advertising options for websites that want to display ads on mobile screens. Personally I rather try and convert people into subscribers or sell them products (either my own or affiliate products).

  2. Mobile Blogging… It was interesting… People bring mobiles phone or tablet increasing nowadays. Like trending

    • Yeah I think by the end of 2012 pretty much all of North America will have a mobile phone, and a good chunk will also have a tablet.

  3. Agree with you. 2012 is trending for mobile blogging.
