You can now have your complete fill of Cranach posts: I moved the archives from the other site to a separate page on this one. Click on the “Archive of Old Site 2005-2007” on the right panel and you will find TWO YEARS of posts, a total of 805 pages! That’s about 4 books worth.
(The regular “archives” section just archives this site, month by month. Also, the “archives” heading at the top doesn’t work. I don’t know why. Also the search function isn’t working for the separate and super-long page of pages of what I am calling “Lucas Cranach the Elder.” Can anyone tell me why or how to fix it? tODD?)
And thanks to my daughter Joanna, who was the first editor of World’s blog, I have learned how to add other features. Thanks too to Rich Shipe. He pointed out that if I open this site to some discreet advertisements by signing up with Google’s Adsense and letting them place their ads, I could probably earn enough to pay for this online real estate and this would be a not-so-expensive hobby. So I’m trying that. I tried to filter out any truly objectionable ads. Some of them that come up–for example, those about getting a Mormon wife (because I must have said something about Romney)–are kind of a hoot. And they probably won’t be as bad as some of those on my World site, for which I wasn’t even getting paid. You don’t think I’m selling out, do you?
Some of the rest of you might want to do likewise on your blogs. Just do a search for Google AdSense. It’s very easy, and you get a cut of Google’s billions.
