    Great tips! I definitely think responsive web design is key. I mean I even up[date my blog via a mobile device and I’m sure I’ll use a tablet in the near future. If I’m using these different platforms to create content, I know others are using them to view content.

    I’m definitely convinced that this is a great idea… but how to get one or go about it? How many web/blog designers really create these?

    I think this is a great idea- although IFB isn’t up to date with this blog post! I’m on my iPhone and can’t read the infographic bc half the photo isn’t refit to my screen. I’ll have to check it out when I’m on my computer- but that defeats the point!

    Love that you guys are posting about RWD! I work at a communications consulting firm and we build custom websites, and we’ve been all about RWD the last few months. If you want to see a RWD site in action check out and resize your browser to make it smaller – You’ll see how it scales and snaps into place to optimize for a tablet/iphone size screen, and then a mobile phone. Pretty cool!

    P.S. Any tips for how to make a blog hosted on Blogger responsive?

    Making your blog site mobile is very easy. If you are using WordPress just download a plug-in that will make your site responsive.

    I am using WPTouch on my blog.

    You can see the layout changes on a smartphone.

      Hmmm, I know my blog looks on a desktop/laptop computer, mobile and tablet. is there any other device I should be worried about?
      I thought using a certain platform would ensure that some issues like responsiveness would be taken care of *sigh* – never ending housekeeping in sight I guess.

    I am agree with you, flexible grid and images plays an important role to make a blog more attractive for multiple internet devices.

    Responsive webdesign will be standard practice soon. I believe in 2013 more people will look on websites with their phone instead of a desktop. Time for web developers to learn evenmore skills.

    Test your site in various devices from an iPhone and iPad, to a Kindle and on Android on the Responsivetools. It also shows your site both in portrait and landscape mode. I like this tool much more because of the outlines of the devices displayed on the page, which brings more meaning to the whole process.
