John Chow dot Com Version 3

Keep your eyes open for a new John Chow dot Com. Version 3 is coming! Expect to see the new theme before I leave for IZEA Fest this Thursday.

As I write this, Unique Blog Designs is putting the finishing touches on John Chow dot Com V3. I really like what Nate Whitehill and his team has produced. The new theme will offer many new features and help to reinforce and promote the John Chow dot Com brand.

If all goes well, I am hoping to launch the new theme tomorrow. Failing that, the new theme will goes live during my “Big Money Bloggers” panel at IZEA Fest. Keep an eye out for it and if you’re going to IZEA Fest, I’ll see you there!

  1. John,
    Keep us posted on your new design. I hope it helps you to increase your monthly income several times!

      Yeh John,
      Do you think that this will help increase your monthly income serval times???
      Would a new theme on my entrepreneurs blog increase my income or should I wait till I have more readers????

      1. Abdul says:

        Ddamn I still cannot understand how a new blog design can increase earnings!

        1. Abdul,

          Just sit back and watch John hit $40K easily next month. Yo won’t be dissapointed.

        2. Yonu says:

          Abdul, the design matters a lot. Besides content, I think that the design of a blog is the most important thing in blogging.

          Just wait to see the version 3 of this blog. I`m sure that John will earn at least 40K every month with his new visual theme.

        3. You’d be surprised, it doesn’t look like John is doing anything too radical however moving a few key elements and making a site a little more user friendly does wonders. The same applies to moving advertisers sometimes all it takes is a small movement in ad placement to make or break it.

  2. Can’t wait to see the new design. The guys over at UBD do a great job.

    I am going to have them do mine whenever my blog brings in that kind of income. In the meantime, my modified Fresh News theme from Woothemes is doing very well.

    1. Justin says:

      I was thinking the same thing.

      1. Abdul says:

        How much did they charge you John?
        Just the normal rates?

        1. John Chow says:

          I get a special John Chow rate. 😈

  3. Normal Joe says:

    those guys do good work, can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with next

    1. Abdul says:

      The screenshot that John posted looks like the design is same and there is just a switch of layout!
      Well let’s see if the rest of the theme is I think it is!

  4. I remember you telling me this. I can’t wait to see it. The top preview looks so much better than the top of the current layout. Much more organized & clean.

    And I see you added the Twitter follower widget.

  5. Amanda says:

    I wish we were going to Izea Fest, we were supposed to but plans fell through πŸ™

  6. I’m interested to see the design as well. Make sure to keep track of some of the different traffic and ad metrics. I’d be interested to see the analysis of what the changes do for you.

    1. Abdul says:

      Yea I’m pretty curious about that!
      What effect could a design have over traffic and income?
      Although it could impress many visitors at first sight!

  7. And I thought this one was cool. πŸ™„
    Looking forward to the debut.

  8. Brad says:

    I personally didn’t like what they did for shoemoney’s new theme. mainly because it doesn’t load properly in my old broswer

    1. Which browser are you using? It works great in the new versions of Firefox & IE.

  9. androo says:

    lookin good.. hopefully it’s creative yet at the same time simple..

  10. CoolProducts says:

    Looking forward to the new version and new features. I am a fan of the current John Chow, but change is always good.

  11. Gary says:

    Nate and his UBD team do some amazing work. They did a great job on my blog. πŸ™‚

  12. The preview looks great. Hope to see it live tomorrow but will settle for when it actually goes up.

  13. Nebraska SEO says:

    Shoemoney gets a new design from UBD last week and now John Chow. I thought you were above the whole keeping up with the Joneses thing.

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  14. Cool! Looking forward to the new design. Is this partially happening because of theme compatibility with the newest version of wordpress?

    1. John Chow says:

      No, UBD was working on the new theme before the new WordPress came out.

  15. Guillermo says:

    Lesson number 177564 from The Master: when a thousand different blogs in your niche change the theme to copycat yours, is about time to change once again!

    I hope you are ready for V4 already!

    Let’s bet: how long will it take to the copycats to change themes to look like the new John Chow V3??

  16. Pete says:

    Can’t wait to see the new design. I hope it will be cleaner; current design is slightly too messy with ad placements…

  17. SEO Genius says:

    Sounds great look forward to seeing it, and make sure to take some videos at the fest.

    Will.

    1. Though I don’t love everything they do their work is excellent for the most part.

  18. Carl says:

    UBD simply dominates blog design. Looking forward to see the V3 in action :mrgreen:

  19. Looking forward to seeing your new blog design John.

  20. Great looking theme from what i can see… I really like the top area.. looks a lot less cluttered and more professional. Keep up the great work with johnchow.com ..

  21. Ryan McLean says:

    The new theme is starting to look really good just from what you have shown us. I edit my theme in little bits as I can afford it. $15 here, $30 there…soon it will be just hw I want it.

  22. 100kjob says:

    I don’t quite see a need for you to have a change, maybe you just give someone else a chance to promote their stuff.

  23. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  24. att says:

    Definitely excited to see the new one…seems like this one isn’t very old but I’m sure they will do a good job.

  25. Oliver says:

    Hey John,

    How much did u make in revenue this month for your blog?

    -Oliver

    1. John Chow says:

      This month has just started. The blog made $32K last month.

  26. John,
    That is cool that you are getting a new design. I can’t wait to see it.

  27. Bash Bosh says:

    Looking forward to see new theme πŸ™‚

  28. I love the work the guys at UBD do.
    I will look forward to seeing your new site….

    πŸ™‚

  29. Ryan says:

    Looking forward to seeing your new theme!

  30. Kevin says:

    Looking forward to seeing the new design. UBD have been releasing some fantastic designs recently so I’m sure it will be top notch.

  31. It will be interesting to see what they were able to came up with.

  32. Cant wait to see the new JohnChow!

  33. Fail Funnies says:

    Can’t wait to see it. I have been impressed with UBD for some time, I am sure they will construct something monumental.

  34. Desk Coder says:

    Nothing yet πŸ˜₯

    I do like the change you made to the top bar, looks a lot better.

  35. Takumi86 says:

    I really envy about you john, wish i could purchase that thing πŸ˜‰

  36. john, what are some things that you had to consider before even thinking about having a new design created? maybe that should be a post for those who may consider changing their design or change it in the future. ❗

  37. himi says:

    Wooow John, your new blog will have a striking design!! It will have a very clean design.

  38. Can’t wait to see it. I really enjoy Nate et al’s work!

  39. ipanks says:

    i’ll wait for new design.btw how its look ?

  40. I think that when v3 comes out im going to stay a way for a bit….let everything settle down. I think the top commentators will be fierce. i see the Steven has moved up from his self-proclaimed 3rd :mrgreen:

  41. Matej says:

    It looks great, navigation is great, ads are better placed, color are nice, wow!

  42. Llama Money says:

    Fantastic look John. Sure wish I could afford one of those fancy UBD looks. Last time I priced one out my eyes popped out of my head. Worth every penny, just can’t afford it πŸ™

  43. Quite unusual theme, but interesting

  44. Nice redesign. πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to seeing you at IZEAFest here in Orlando – it’s about time the Chow express made it down here. LOL
