If anyone is wondering about the small banner ads between posts on the front page, I’m doing an affiliate program with this designer of very classy wordpress themes (in which I get 50% of all sales coming from my ads!)

The cost for their basic package (a license to use all of their themes on any websites you own) is $39, which is a bargain.

Just to let regular readers know, I’ll be changing themes again pretty soon. I like the look of this theme (I got it from Eleganthemes.com, part of $39 package to get a whole slew of very sharp themes) but am frustrated on the functionality. Apparently this theme (glider) is designed as more of a single page website theme, rather than a fully featured blog theme.

That said, I may end up using Glider for my upcoming bankruptcy law practice website, lawyer4brokepeople.com (coming soon).

I’ve moved the hosting for this blog yet again and also am using a new wordpress theme. I hope you like it.

Stay tuned for more updates but in the meantime feel free to check out the archives of this blog at its old home at wordpress.com

I’m switching my hosting setup on this blog. Future posts will be posted again at my own web hosting account. Once the DNS goes through, you’ll be access it the regular domain name (JMBzine.com) but in the interim you can go to the new site at jmbranum.com/jmbzine2011.

Also I should mention that there is pretty big change in the WordPress theme design so it is definitely worth a look.

However, regular readers should go ahead and keep jmbx.wordpress.com bookmarked as I’ll be using this as my backup blog in the event of hacker attacks and the like (not a paranoid fear since it happened about a year ago to me).
