I’m going to assume that if you’re reading these words that you read my blog, at least occasionally. I’m curious, though, how you’re reading my blog.
(I was going to include a poll in this post to ask you how you read my blog, which is something I could do using the old classic editor. But inserting a poll into a post does not seem to be an available block in the block editor. At least not on the iPhone version of the block editor. So I guess I’ll have to ask my questions the old fashioned way.
Do you read my posts…
- from the WordPress reader?
- from a laptop or desktop computer?
- from a tablet?
- from a smartphone?
The reason I’m asking this question is that I blog from an iPhone using the WordPress iOS app. I always preview my posts before I publish them. And when I preview them, the app gives me the option of previewing the post from a mobile device view, from a tablet view, or from a desktop view.
Because I use my iPhone to read posts, I preview my posts in Mobile view to make sure it looks the way I want it to. But I’ve noticed that if I go to Desktop view, it sometimes looks weird. Sometimes the images aren’t centered in desktop view as they appear to be in mobile view. Or the text, which looks fine when aligned left in the mobile view, seems lost in the desktop view.
And then there’s the reader view, which is pretty much non-formatted — at least via the iPhone app — and looks nothing like what the post looks like when you actually visit the site. I hate the reader view.
So, back to my question. When you read my posts, do you mostly read them from a desktop/laptop, from a tablet, or from a mobile device? Or do you read them via the WordPress reader?
And, for what it’s worth, I read all of your posts from my iPhone in mobile view.
