Is your blog .mobi ready?
I had a long discussion with someone from one of the big telcos on the possibility of adding blogs to their mobile portal. They wanted to check out more local blogs to add to their listing. The only initial requirement is that the blog should be mobile ready (either WAP capable or .mobi ready). At first, I thought it was just for the blogs I own or help run but I broached the idea that we should widen the coverage and include others I know well that have a good following, consistently updated with a specific niche.
So the search is on for active blogs with a great focus on industry niches. I’m not sure how many I can recommend for inclusion but it’s good to make as many recommendations as I possibly can. The bigger question now — is your blog mobile ready? Here’s how you can check your blog’s mobile readiness – ready.mobi.
If you want to check out how your blog would look like in mobile phones, you can use these emulators: Mobi Emulator and Smartphone Emulator Developer.
One other very strict compliance should be some sort of editorial control (blog contents beyond PG13 or with sensitive language).
