Mobile devices such as the Apple iPhone are becoming an increasingly more popular way for people to surf the web and consume information from blogs and news sites. To allow for easier reading on mobile devices, I have installed a WordPress plug-in that senses mobile devices, and serves up a mobile version of BikeCarson.com. It’s a scaled back version of the site, and it loads much quicker than the full version. The plug-in is pretty customizable, so let me know what you think. I’ve gone with a format that shows the date and an excerpt from the post. It works great on my iPhone, but I haven’t tested it with other devices. Let me know if works for your other mobile platforms.
In addition to the new mobile version, there are other ways to keep up on what’s happening on BikeCarson.com. There are mobile apps for just about everything now, and all the resources below may also be used on your mobile device.
- Subscribe to Bike Carson’s RSS Feed and browse in your favorite feed reader: feeds.feedburner.com/BikeCarson
- Follow Bike Carson On Twitter: twitter.com/BikeCarson
Twitter has become a great way to keep up on what’s happening and communicate with others in the bike world. Cyclists from around the world and even bike companies are making regular updates all day long. I’ve started to create Twitter Lists for better organization. For an example, look for my list of Bike Companies on the Bike Carson Twitter page.
