I've finally migrated my old template into the Blogger Template Designer, so even though I've used the same background and image header, it will look a little different now. Eventually I think I will change those, too, though.
I've also, by changing the template, started the process of eliminating Barnes & Noble affiliate ads from my blog. I am doing this for two reasons: One, I wasn't making any money at it, and two, I discovered the affiliate program doesn't pay commissions on ebook sales. The two may have something to do with one another, I don't know. In any case, for the time being my blog revenue on this blog will come solely from AdSense ads.
I'm looking forward to the new look and the ad changes as I finish them!
