    First off, I don't like the design at all. The background does not work with your overused free theme.

    Just my opinion ...

    At least a new background ... I can see how the theme is Mac-ie, but I just think it is too overused.

    First off, if you are blogging just to make money. You have started wrong already. You say you love mac. Make sure you love writing about mac. Blogs are not a make money quick type of deal. Blogs are a long term type of deal. Google "wp themes" pick one you have not seen before or not that often. Make sure you have space to put ad slots. A great plugin for this is oiopublisher. Cost only $37. Make sure your blog stay up to date with fresh content. Build your readership. (This is a must)

    I blog just to keep track of what I learn, done, and earn online. From my love of writing and building a network of websites, my blog happens to make money. I also got a show added onto my blog.

    If your number 1 goal is to make money from your blog, guess what? you started wrong. Your blog will never be big were people want to come everyday to read.

    1) Write great content
    2) Build readership
    3) Then try to make money

    Blogs are not make money quick tools. Blogs are long term money makers. Most of the big blogs you see today, I could name of few but I won't. Took 2 - 3 years to where they are today. Now they are earning a lot of money.

    Read problogger.net to learn how to build a successful blog.

    Has for oiopublisher, its a plugin for you to sell ad slots, reviews, and whatever else you want to sell.

    First you should try to use the word "what" instead of "wut", that would increase your website's conversion rate by 5469%.
