Thanks for the feedback!
@wpbum that code mistake only showed up in firefox for some reason (i typically use safari and it wasn't noticed no idea why) anyways thanks for pointing it out and the problem has been resolved.
As far as the advertising goes. I have heard both sides of the fence and tend to agree with the people that say to implement ads from the beginning. The main reason is that if you fully intend on advertising on your blog why not start out from the beginning that way you aren't going to surprise any readers when you do ad them in. Also if you let your blog run for a year without ads there's no telling how much revenue you will lose out on.
However I have tried to place my ads in locations that are not overly obtrusive to the reading experience. I am looking into blending them into the header and footer a little better as well.
@movedSouth thanks for the comment!
