Site Redesign (Geek in Heels 6.0)

It’s done. After working all last week and through the long weekend, my site redesign is finally complete.

Introducing Geek in Heels 6.0 —

I know that when adding a place for ads, I could’ve just easily done so with my last design. But I had been itching for a redesign for ages — so I figured, why not now?

(J is thrilled that I included him in my banner. He says I better add Comang too — what do you think?)

I am still working out some minor kinks here and there, so please bear with me for the next week or so. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, leave a comment or send me a message via my contact form.

Now, on to the ads…

Since I just added the JavaScript to start running BlogAds on this site, I do not have any advertisers yet and I may not for quite some time. I went with their suggested rate of $40/month for a 160×100 ad (which is the same size as the “Advertise Here!” image) while larger sizes and Flash/video files cost up to $192/month.

(Did you know that Perez Hilton, who also uses BlogAds, charges $4,000 per week for a 160×200 ad?  😯 )

You can see all my ad options here.

And since I am new to the ad game…

For a limited time, get 30% off your first ad placement with
the discount code NEWAD30! (without the exclamation point)

Notice that the bigger ad, or the longer duration you buy, the bigger your discount will be.  😉

And that is what I’ve been up to the past few days.

That, and Claire’s teething. Earlier today, she would start screaming if I put her down anywhere. I had to carry her and bounce her around for two hours in order to keep her from crying. My arms and back are killing me. Caring for an infant while you’re 18 weeks pregnant is exhausting. And this is precisely why I will be passing out as soon as I click the “Publish” button on this post.

Have a good night, and I hope everyone here on the east coast is surviving the heat wave!

    Thanks for writing about who you are advertising with. I’m going to apply to the same place because figuring out all the options overwhelms me. I assume it doesn’t plan annoying restrictions on you like stupid BlogHer that won’t let me use my *own* blog however the heck I please? I’m hoping so because that’s the reason I hadn’t started advertising yet.

    And I love the design! It’s very you, and I love that you’ve carried a similar look throughout time.
