I have been thinking about what to do with Lost In Mobile for some time now and, as some of you will know, I have attempted to stop running the site a few times over the years.
I am not going to stop writing about phones, but do realise that Lost In Mobile is not going anywhere at the moment and it finally dawned on me as to why. It is too general and will never appeal to enough people to generate the traffic needed to make it worth my time.
When people search Google or visit any site, they are looking for specifics and usually that will mean looking for information on a particular phone or platform when it comes to mobile. 99% do not want to read a random article about how mobiles work or my experiences because 99% of people are not invested in their phones or tablets that way.
I also feel that I don't give the site enough time to write long articles that are worthy of people's time. On average each long article takes between 5 and 10 minutes to think up and write, and that isn't good enough.
So, I am going to move to just one platform in the future and concentrate app and accessory reviews, hardware experiences, news and everything else to that one platform. I have a few articles already set to publish this week and so can spend time thinking about which platform to choose for the new site. It will be mobile, it will be comprehensive, but I can't say for sure at this time which platform offers the best opportunity for an attempt to make a profitable site which is worth spending time on every day. When I decide, I will let you know.
