Basic tips on making a WordPress site mobile-friendly

iPhone being held

Having a mobile-friendly website is now more important than ever with the dominance of smartphones.

As you’ve noticed, the blog’s been a bit rough looking (or not even up) over the past day or so. That’s because (my web hosting skills aside), I’ve just finished moving the blog to its new home, A Small Orange.
