As some of you know, I am a bit of a road warrior and a Mobile fanboy. To keep on top of my blog reading, I often find myself reading my blog list on my iPhone. In fact I even wrote a blog post about stealing time for Blog reading and Social Media. Most of time I am using Google Reader to catch up on my blog reading, but sometimes as I find new blogs I read the blogs directly on the blog website and not using Google Reader. While the mobile Safari Browser on the iPhone is great, it is even better when blogs have a specific mobile site.
For those of you using WordPress to maintain your blogs, there are 2 great plugins that will automatically create a version of your site for most mobile phones. The plugins are WPtouch and MobilePress.
Here is an example of my Blog using WPtouch:
Here is an example of the HR Think Tank blog using MobilePress:
As you can see the mobile plugins reformat the site to fit within the mobile browser window so that you do not need to pinch and zoom to see the actual blog post content.
So, my mobile blog reading wish for 2010 is that everyone who maintains a blog will install a plugin to enable mobile reading.
