I just updated this website to be mobile-friendly using the fantastic WordPress theme Twenty Fifteen. I also updated my BC Wilderness Visions website, using the same theme but different settings. Check it out to see the striking effects that can be achieved by simple colour changes.
I want to give a big shout-out to WordPress for this awesome theme. It only took me a day to update both websites to use this theme. I was previously using Silver Light by Blog Oh! Blog. I loved this theme and didn’t want to change, but Google forced me into action by notifying me that my Google ranking would slip if I didn’t make my site resizable for mobile phones and tablets. What can you do?
I checked out my Google Analytics for the past month, and found that of the 1000+ visitors to this technical writing website:
- 918 used desktops. This is what I thought! My clients are typically at their desk at work when they think about their need for a technical writer, do a search, and call me.
- 70 used their mobile phones.
- 15 used their tablets.
Technical writers bridge people and technology
So isn’t it interesting that people use technology to find technical writers? Most of my clients find me by searching on the internet. And thanks to Google Analytics, I know which devices they use, what countries they search from, and even what browser they use!
Here are the stats for browsers used to find this technical writing website:
- Chrome – 729
- FireFox – 115
- Safari – 72
- Internet Explorer – 31
Please drop me a line to let me know what you think of the new site! And if you like, tell us what device and browser you used to get here. 🙂
