new features for sharing on the go

Mobile theme for iPhone.

As an increasing number of you who read this site by phone likely are aware, I recently installed a mobile theme for viewing on iPhones and other so-called “smart” devices.

The mobile version is simpler and sometimes loads faster. Readers can turn off the theme on the bottom of the page to view the site normally, which is recommended if you’re looking for links or J-listings, for instance.

Also, on the bottom of this page, below the Knotty Pine ad, I’ve added a Twitter feed to share links. I know, some of you probably are groaning at the mention of Twitter, but it’s useful for steering readers to fun or interesting places — stuff I’m reading but don’t really have time or interest to write about.

What I've been reading.

It’s the fastest way to spread news, and in recent weeks I’ve used it to share political commentary and link to announcements such as the Targhee Bluegrass Fest lineup, for example.

Many of you no doubt surf the top headlines and comments on this page, but at the bottom there are links to quality content elsewhere, like music news on JamBase and always thoughtful columns by Tim Egan. And the Cowboy State Free Press has been compiling a pretty good roundup of Wyoming stories.

These feeds, especially the Twitter link, will be increasingly useful in the coming weeks when I’m away and the busy summer approaches.

As always, I’d love to hear feedback on these and other features, and if there’s anything else you’d like to see on this site, let me know.

    A few layout changes: The Twitter feed has been renamed Latest Links and moved to the top left of the page. The RSS feeds for Cowboy State Free Press, Jambase and Tim Egan have shifted to bottom left. Thanks for the feedback.
