Go Mobile ‑ Try a Responsive Theme!

Announcing ResponsiveWebDesignExamplesdotCOM
Responsive themes fit any screen size.

Mobile is taking over . . . There is a need for a one-size-fits-all theme to view the same content across multilple screens. It’s called, “responsive theme.” Domain blogger Morgan Linton has migrated to a responsive theme. Former TechCrunch writer Sarah Lacy has built her blog, PandoDaily on a responsive theme. Engadget is the latest tech blog to migrate over. JW.org serves content using a responsive theme.

When a viewer clicks on a search result built with a responsive theme, the content he clicked is the content delivered. It offers security to the visitor, especially if the visitor intends to shop or complete another financial transaction! With a mobile theme, a user gets redirected to another page when he clicks on a search result. Not so good.

My artist, Ioana, worth her weight in gold, has introduced me to responsive web templates over a year ago. Ioana saw the need for flexible design, which would load equally on a smartphone, tablet, or tabletop screen. I have assembled – for the benefit of you, the domaining community – a list of free responsive web design templates at: ResponsiveExamples.com – enjoy! If you would like to ask help from Ioana to clean up white space or conceive a logo and figure out colors, you may contact me, and I will forward the info to her. Contact louise [at] emergingdomains dot com.

EmergingDomains is built on a responsive theme called, Portfolio Press by Devin Price. Visit iPadPeek to view this article in the tablet and phone view. Screenshots were snapped on iPadPeek.com.
