Is your blog suitable for a mobile device?
In 2012, mobile users spent 63% more time on their devices accessing mobile websites and apps and this is set to increase.
In this article I’ll explore the importance of mobile for your blog and the different options available to support your blog on a mobile device.
Is Mobile Important for Your Blog?
Yes! An increasing number of your readers will access your blog from their mobile devices. Smartphone usage will continue to increase and don’t be surprised if more people access your blog from a mobile device rather than a desktop in the future.

Do you want to improve the results of your social media marketing?
Measuring your social media performance is key to getting great results.
You need the right tools to measure those results.
In this article, we’ll go through 3 analytic tools to help improve your results on social media.
#1: Mention – Monitor Your Brand Anywhere on the Web
Mention is an excellent social media and web monitoring tool. You set up alerts based on keywords, and content related to those keywords is displayed through the Mention application or sent to you via email or social media.
When you monitor and track keywords, you can find potential business, build relationships with new people and respond quickly to situations that could damage your brand.
There are many monitoring tools available, but many either are very expensive or have limitations.
For example, you may use Google Alerts to track keywords mentioned on the web. However, I’ve found these alerts are not nearly as comprehensive as Mention. Google Alerts also does not provide the functionality that’s essential to manage and proactively respond to these alerts. Mention provides this functionality.
Social relationship management is about managing these relationships. And you need the right tools to help.
In this article, I’ll show you 3 new social media tools to help manage your online relationships and grow your presence on social media platforms.
#1: Engagio—Manage All of Your Online Conversations in One Place
Engagio is an inbox for conversations on the web. It tracks your conversations, your friends’ conversations and you can even track any conversations you’re interested in through the search feature!
Most bloggers quickly discover that posts that contain lists are popular.
Unfortunately, list posts usually require a lot of work to write and are rarely updated after they’re published.
What if there was an easy way to create list posts and keep them up to date?
List.ly can help you do this. Plus List.ly offers you a welcome bit of social interaction.
Create a Community-Driven List Post
List.ly is a collaborative list-building tool. You create the initial list on the List.ly website and you can embed it as part of your blog post. Embedding means that it appears as if it’s in your blog post, but it still resides on List.ly.
What’s cool is that your community can then add and/or vote for items on the list. This can be a useful tool to engage with your community and discover more about their interests.
The best way to gain email subscribers is to deliver great content via your blog.
Here are seven great WordPress plugins to grow your email subscribers and let you focus on delivering great content.

Popup boxes that appear when readers are browsing a website can get you more email subscriptions when they are used correctly.
But they can also annoy users, so they need to be handled with care and tweaked for your audience.
Pippity allows you to do this. Pippity provides you with the configuration options necessary to ensure that popups are delivered in the most unobtrusive and beneficial way to your users.
