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.

I do recommend them, but only for very experienced WordPress users (these themes were a bit over my head at first due the extreme levels of customization that are possible).

Also as far as ads go generally, I’ll try to keep them to a minimum, but there may be a few more unobtrusive ones coming in the future.
