Stop whining at me - good news/bad news on mobile computing

Wow, I received several emails about this mobile computing stuff.

Many - most,  are you complaining to me that your web person didn't set you up on a mobile computing site/blog and now you cannot afford to do anything more. They stuck you ... is basically what you are telling me.

Well, there are solutions ... that is the good news.

The solutions are 1) purchase an application or 2) to purchase a mobile theme.

The bad news is that you will have to pay more money - not to me.

That money will be to purchase your application and then the time to put your content in it. All the applications I have researched are separate from your existing site so you have to put your content in it. This is not the best way to go - in my humble opinion.

Another solution is to buy a mobile theme, but that is like designing a new web site. Here's the question you gotta ask, "How come your web site designer didn't get you a mobile theme to start with?"  I think this is a better way to go.  Yes, that is even true for all your wordpress folks too. Sure, they get you hooked on a "free website" but you always end up paying ...  hire an expert - improve your satisfaction.

But, if you don't have your site SEO'd and your traffic is less than 50 people a day - you better go back to the basics before you worry about "mobilizing your site/blog. It's time for you to start attracting some attention to yourself and your offerings.
