New Zac Johnson Blog Design
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.

Wow, it looks fantastic! UniqueBlogDesigns did a great job.
I really like the new design Zac. It's probably one of my favorite designs from UBD. I'm sure this will only make your blog more popular. Great work!
Thanks, I really like the design too. It gives me a lot more flexibility on what I can offer through the site.
I also dig the look. It's clean, but also has a lot of info packed into it.
Looks great Zac… UBD always does great work!
Looks great, Zac!
The sparkles match your crown nicely!
Looks fantastic! Great job Nate and crew 😀
Wow, great job Zac, Nate, et al. Site looks awesome.
Wanted to drop a quick thanks for purchasing a TopSpot thingy. Also the new design from the site development pimp looks terrific.
Np, TopSpots is a great program. I made sure to order a ton of shirts to send them out to my advertisers.
wow that is great! looks really web 2.0 ish
congrats on the new design Zac . . . . it looks really great! i was hoping to see some skulls and crossbones though 😉
Wow! I love the new looks. You did a great job.
Love the new design Zac 🙂
Nice looking new blog design. I was able to catch a glimpse of it at about 2:00 am last night.
The new blog design looks awesome, Zac. I really like it 🙂
looks great! well done…
Yeah, nicely done. The image in the comment box is a nice nice touch. Fancy!
uniqueblogdesigns seems to making themes for everybody
Not a hater………but, not feeling it at all.
Nate and his buddies over at UBD have become a brand, like Gucci.
The theme is not practical at all.
Uh… Don't mean to sound pig-ignorant or anything, but how is adding extra functionality impractical?
No kidding! I think this a great a functional design. Easy on the eyes, and much more profitable for Zac.
Great new look Zac! It's nice and clean and looks professional while not getting too "flashy". Nice mix of everything!
Great new look. Like everyone said, this is a clean and professional theme. Good Job, UBD!
Just one caveat, for your subscribe bar at your header, I am not sure if I need to put in my email address or blog url. Maybe you want put some instruction within?
Thanks, I made sure to fix this today.
Love the new look. The ads blend real well.
Damm, this is sweet!
Great design that Nate's team made for ya. Now just tell us how much it cost you 🙂
The design cost $750.
That's really reasonable for a full on custom job!
Makes me want to buy a theme from these guys more and more…
Stick with what you have, Paul.
And if you do go with a new design, keep your current logo, it's super-dope!
Been meaning to tell you that.
Which agency are you working for? Sheesh.
@Paul – You do have a great design at present. Looking at options never hurt anyone. I applaud your not-so-narrow-sighted-approach. 😉
Very nice design. Now, you just need to add a favicon.
Just added one. Thanks.
Very nice looking. I like it. Nate seems to be the designer at the moment and I can see why.
To be honest I don't like new design.
Header is nice, but "Recent Comments" and "Popular Posts" neither look very nice ( if you comapre it with Shoe's,John's or Tim's), and I think that "Recent Comments" section is useless as well "Recent Posts" section on sidebar. Website shouldn't be cluttered IMO
What's up with background color in footer?
Link colors shouldn't be the same color as text IMO ( black in your case)
"Full Feed RSS" section in sidebar is unnecessary and doesn't look professional
Whole website is to colorful in my honest opinion and I think that 750$ is way to much for this because I don't think it's custom wordpress theme, neither unique like UniqueBlogDesigns.com like to talk about their designs.
But I'm your regular reader and the content is the reason I come here.
What does a re-design like this cost. UBD doesn’t have prices for custom work on their website anymore.
Your old design was better than this man. The blue colors right now are way too dark. Your old color scheme kept it light and refreshing. The lens flare on your header needs to be fleshed out more.
I'm still diggin it. Even the small touches like the "logo" in the text box while making comments lol.
New theme looks great, Zac. Out of interest are you running open ads? That way we could get some type of idea how your CTR is without disclosing who the advertiser’s are.
I would assume your CTR is fairly high so I’d probably a nice selling point too.
Congragulations ! for the new design
The new design is absolutely awesome. The header portion is a little too busy though…
Wow, this is so much cooler than most blogs I've seen, you've outdone yourself!!!
