I wrote a few weeks ago about the new Vigilance WordPress theme I switched to recently. Until yesterday I was running the theme pretty much as it came and finally got around to tweaking it a touch. I’ve changed up the font, link color, and added a few random pictures I found in Flickr to the content bar across the top of the site. The pictures either reflect some interest of mine or just look really cool. Hopefully I can keep adding to the collection.
The blue font color that I’ve picked out for links may not be the exact shade I’m looking for, so it might get tweaked. If looks matter and you read via RSS, you may want to check out the site.
Oh, and, like other people I’ve struggled with whether or not to place ads on my site to try and at least cover the expenses of hosting the blog. After going ad-less for a long time I put some Google Adsense ads in the top right corner of the page. I think over the next few weeks I’m going to do some experiments with ad placement and see what works. I’m really trying to use it to target search engine traffic, so I’ve moved the ads from the corner to actually embedded in the post. If the ads bother you the RSS feed is ad-free.
