What is a “Responsive” website anyway?

Basically, one that “responds” to the device that is viewing it, whether it is a full-sized PC monitor, a smaller PC monitor, a tablet or iPad, a smartphone or iPhone.  Each of these devices will see the pages “optimized” to viewing on that particular platform.  Thus a large image on a PC will squeeze down to fit in the smaller screen sizes, vs. getting “cut off” and creating aggravating horizontal scrolling.

The WordPress site I will create for you will be flexible, mobile and fully responsive, built with the best responsive and mobile friendly coding, Bootstrap 3.0, HTML5 and CSS3.  This will display your web pages nicely on all devices.

How pervasive is mobile Internet access vs. PC monitor?  See the below chart from statcounter.com, whose report states:
