I plan on upgrading to the premium "Modern News" theme created by StudioPress soon. I was checking out StudioPress' website when I found the "Modern News" theme instead titled "News" and this snapshot and demo of the theme included boxes for advertising. I know that this version of the theme is marketed as a child theme for Genesis, but I want to know if the capability to include built-in spaces for advertisements remains on WordPress.com's theme. I would really appreciate any help with this as I hope to start supporting my blog financially with local advertisements.
The version of the theme I am referring to that features ads and it's demo can be found here: http://www.studiopress.com/themes/news
The blog I need help with is thebullmhs.com.
