I really liked my original blog design and it was great to start a new blog with a unique design, but as the blog got bigger and needed more features, I felt it was time for an upgrade. I decided to contact Nate from UniqueBlogDesigns to see what we could do. Working with Nate was great, but what was really cool was being able to meet him at BlogWorld, prior to him working on the design. I recommend you get in touch with him if you are looking for any design work. The good news is, we are finally live with the new Zac Johnson blog design! I spent the past few days working on some updates here and there, and some of you were actually lucky enough to run across the design while I was testing it out! Here are some of the new features of the blog.
New Top Header:
An excellent new navigation setup, which allows you to view the "Most Popular Posts", "Recent Comments" and view some of my "Money Makers". The "Make Money" and "Tools" sections will also be heavily revamped over the next few days. Look for many new updates offers, images and tools to improve your marketing.
Everyone loves pictures and putting names to a face is even better. I made sure to list all of my pictures from prior networking events like BlogWorld and Affiliate Summit. I’ll be working on this section a bit more to add descriptions and eventually import the full design into the ZacJohnson.com layout.
Join Zac’s Top Spots:
A cool new program from my good friend Jim Kukral. Jim’s all about having fun with marketing, so he came up with ScratchBack… which is a new fun way to "tip" sites, while getting a link back in return. I really like the concept, but I wanted to bring it a step further. In addition to giving Jim’s program some much deserved exposure, I wanted to offer something extra for my blog readers as well. You can buy (or "tip") your way into my Top Spots for a small price of $25 a week. In addition to receiving a Top Spots Link, I’ll also send you a new Black MoneyReign t-shirt. Send me a pic of you wearing the shirt and I’ll add your pic and a link back to your site/blog url on my blog TopSpots page. (I will follow up with a dedicated post in a few days on how you can make money using ScratchBack on your blog.)
New Advertising Spots:
As you can obviously see, new ad spots are available with the new design. For rates and availability feel free to look over the Advertising page.
Thanks for checking out the new blog design and please leave any comments, suggestions, possible errors or any features/topics you would like to see added to the site.
