Today we’re monetizing the blog with LinkShare affiiate links. I chose techie and game links because I assume my audience is techie and game-ie. The LinkShare program is straightforward to join. The interface is similar to commission junction, easier to read.
I placed some links on the sidebar and some are over this article. I’ll report back on AdSense vs. LinkShare success.

The task today is to decorate the WordPress blog in a theme appropriate for code readers and flexible enough for Adsense Hosting.
After Joomla I’d say WordPress has to be my favorite tool. It works. It doesn’t talk down to me. I don’t have to threaten to hurt its family to make it go.
Finding themes for WordPress is much harder than finding themes for Joomla. My blog posts are full of raw code — PHP, C#, VBScript — so the theme I choose for Bogart’s Answers has to work with dicey content. (When I first created this blog over at Blogger Google made me wait for a human to approve it. Apparently all of that raw C# looked like spam to the filter.)
This theme — Corporate Pro 1.0 by Colleen Chard — has the strength and flexibility to withstand my spamish-looking code rants. This theme is a beautiful combination of color, layout and refinement.

Of the many marketing ideas I’ve learned over at John Scott’s V7n forums is the very good idea of making the AdSense the same font as the theme’s font. I have added 1 link unit and three text units to the theme’s index and sidebar using the colors I found in styles.css. The result is Google AdSense that blends right in.
