One of the biggest problems with design, I think, is trying to make your site look good on mobile and desktop. Having sidebars is great for desktop sites, but it doesn’t transfer to mobile very well.
According to the Google analytics, traffic to my site is about 54% mobile and about 45% desktop, with tablet showing barely over 1%. I wish we had an option to optimize it based on what the viewer was coming to your site with.

I feel the answer is: it’s already optimized. The issue is designing for the desktop first. Mobile use will only increase until the next tech revolution, and then it’s on to that. There’s no way to account for all the screen sizes and service types these days. Use an up to date theme, WordPress core, and don’t add unnecessary items.
*This isn’t a speech to you, just my thoughts in general that came up after reading your comment. 🙂🙌

I admire sites whose blocks respond to mouseover by tinting the block, highlighting the content. I haven’t yet found how to duplicate this sleek effect – suggestions?
