  • Paid about $512 to start YooperSmith.com, LLC.
  • Signed up for Google AdSense
  • Added 1 ad unit to my Home page
  • Added a google search to my Home page.

THANKS! to Liz T from work. All she said was, “Update your web page, it’s cool”. So, I thought, um ok. :-) Inspiration comes from many places, I guess you just have to listen for it.
