Update Complete!

Returning visitors to the site may notice that the site has a new look! Thanks for bearing with us over the weekend as we integrated the new features. Please let us know if you notice any problems.

We believe there are some benefits to this new look over the old one for both the site's writers and its readers. First, we're able to better organize the information on the site. For example, the tabs at the top enable easier access for readers to the site's content, which is something our readers have been asking for.

Another benefit (we hope!) is that ad space is used more effectively. A large part of the site's revenue comes from users clicking on google ads. Unfortunately, our click rate under the old design was apparently well below normal, so hopefully the current location of the ads is a little more catchy, allowing readers to better see and click on advertiser links that interest them.

Please don't hesitate to let us know what you think of the new look, either by commenting on this post, or contacting us by e-mail. Many thanks to Brad, who writes regularly for Triaging to Financial Success, for getting this process started.

Happy reading!

Looks great!!

I would maybe just center the main google ad by using a center and /center html coding. Otherwise I really like the final product!
