Finally, if you’re reading this on a phone or tablet computer, you’ve no doubt noticed that we (finally) have a functional mobile-friendly site for you! (Thanks for your patience).

If you have a website that is not yet mobile friendly, you have about 3 weeks to fix that before Google’s new algorithm erases all signs of your existence. Bmobilized can save your bacon.  (Not sponsored. Not an affiliate. Just grateful!)
