The mobile view of this blog

Google Analytics shows that about 15% of my visitors to this blog are actually reading with mobile device. Last month, 37.37% of the mobile visits are from iPhone, 29.43% from Android, 27.31% from iPad, 1.86% from Symbian, and the rest from others.

If you are accessing this blog (or any other blogs hosted in Google's Blogger a.k.a. Blogspot platform) with your mobile device, you will be able to browse its mobile view, which is a simpler, faster loading version. Here is how it looks like:

Scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can find the "View web version" option to switch to its web view.

Actually, web view is also pretty nice when browsed with my favourite mobile browser - Dolphin Browser.

It is even better if you rotate your phone to read in landscape mode.

Actually, there is a trick in the blog's URL to switch it to mobile view and vice versa.
If you are also blogging on Google's Blogger a.k.a. Blogspot, you can check how your blog looks like in its mobile view by accessing it with your mobile phone, or by accessing from any browser using the mobile view URL as above. There are several templates and settings which you can configure in the Settings > Email & Mobile tab.
