use a responsive theme

Test your site via ami.responsivedesign.is/ – you should chose a theme, which gives a good responsive not only to desktop computers, portable laptops or tablets – but especially also to mobile phones! So I changed my wordpress theme from “pilcrow” (yesterday) to “responsive” (today: now also mobile phones are able to present my blog – please tell me if I’m wrong!)
responsive
compare my yesterday’s test with wordpress theme pilcrow: the mobile phone only could grab pics not larger than 150×150 – not my usual 500×500:
4-sizes
P.S.:
what a pity, I do not have a mobile phone with internet capability… – laugh about me enjoying the video below and call me Emma:

    • it’s much too expensive, that mobile epidemic – I’m glad with my desktop station – enough! you are soothing me Marina / Emma …

      • I use a “desktop replacement” laptop which is far too big to carry unless I’m going away for a long time. Small, portable, expensive electronics would be far too expensive for me. The only way I finally stopped losing purses was to buy clothes with pockets. I think an iPad wouldn’t last more than a week with me. My mother used to call me the “absent minded professor.” It takes me twenty minutes to leave my apartment because I can’t ever find my keys.

  4. I tested your site on the desktop, my iPad, and myiPhone. It works! I’ve been thinking of changing themes but I somehow have not gotten around to it. You make me want to explore again! Btw, the ad was hilarious!

    Thanks for sharing this site. I stopped by to test out mine, but some don’t show well on all devices. I may have to think about changing them.

    I laughed so much when I saw the video that Mr F came over to see what was so funny and he nearly fell over he laughed so much. Thanks.
    How do I know whether my theme is viewable on an iPhone if I dont have one?

  12. HAHAHAHA …. i think the video is hilarious. It is exactly how I feel. I am still reading books that have pages. I dislike cell phones and have one for emergency’s only. We have become too technoligically dependant. The anti-chirt some people call all this machinery. I wonder about that but we are becoming more dependant everyday.
    I like your new theme. I is easy on the eyes and very wasy to navigate.

  13. Cute video!
    I didn’t think I would care for all that mobile technology, but now that I have it, I love it. There are so many cool apps, too. I didn’t even text until a couple months ago, but only to my hubby so far. I’ve had such good luck with Apple products, I have the macbook pro, iPad, iPhone, iPod classic and haven’t had any problems with them, so far. I hope it continues. My PC gave me too many problems.
    I still like paper for some things, including a small paper calendar for appointments, and handwritten cards and letters, but when it comes to practicing doodling and drawing, the iPad is less wasteful than paper. I make a lot of mistakes.
    Your theme works on all my devices.
