Hi, my name is Zac Johnson and blogging has completely changed my life, brand, and business for the better. So much so, that I created this site at Blogging.org to help share my story, inspire others, and also walk you through the quick and easy process of how to start a blog of your own.
Already have a blog of your own? Excellent!
No matter where you currently are in your journey for personal or business success, you will also find a world of blogging resources, tips, and courses on this site as well.
If you've already been blogging for a while now and aren't seeing the results you initially expected, I highly recommend you take a look at joining Blogging.org University, so we can connect and start building something amazing!
In the meantime, here's my short list of ways blogging has completely changed my life for the better, and how it can do the same for you as well!
If you are already familiar with myself and my work, you may already know that I have been actively making money online for over 20 years now. During that time, I've gone through a lot of personal and business changes. For example, when I first started out, I focused on affiliate marketing and building out websites.
It wasn't until 2007, that I decided to launch my first blog at ZacJohnson.com, and then focus my efforts on building a personal and business brand of my own. In short, this was definitely one of my best business decisions ever. After launching the blog and establishing myself as an authority in the world of blogging and affiliate marketing, opportunities, like traveling the world and speaking at different events, started to pop up everywhere! You can see some of my worldly travels and speaking sessions in the photos above.
As a result of this, I'm now completely in control of my business, how I get to spend my time, and also have fun with growing my business and brand in the process. All of these perks are great, but the world of blogging and entrepreneurship has so much to offer -- many of which I cover in detail throughout this blog.
Everyone wants to be famous -- or at least that's what the world wants us to think. Thanks to the power of the internet and anyone now having the ability to start a blog or social profile, there is really no excuse for anyone to not be able to turn their passion into an online business, while also potentially turning themselves into an "internet celebrity" in the process.
As mentioned earlier, once you put yourself out there and provide great content and value for others -- other people will start to notice and spread the word. After going live with my blog, I continually get approached for online interviews, writing for various magazines, going on television for live interview appearances, and much more. Heck, I was even featured in a documentary that premiered in Hollywood, CA, called "The Living Dot Com".
All of this and more wouldn't have been possible if I didn't take the leap to start a blog of my own.
When you look at the world today, gone are the days when you needed to hire a PR team or even get famous through television or movies. In fact, the internet has not only made more social media and YouTube celebrities than ever, it's also made the process of creating your own brand and following quite possible as well.
To go along with all of these benefits, blogging can also help you meet some of the biggest celebrities, entrepreneurs, and speakers in the world today. Over the years I've been able to connect with thousands of my blog readers and also got to meet up with some great celebrities, athletes and big-name entrepreneurs like Hulk Hogan and Jalen Rose, Mark Cuban (of Shark Tank), Stan Lee (of Marvel Comics), Matt Cutts (of Google), Marie Forleo, John Chow and Joel Comm (Entrepreneurs), Tiffani Amber Thiessen (of Saved by the Bell), and many more!
Why are we blogging and trying to create something on the internet first place -- most likely, to make money!
Two things to mention here. There first is that there is nothing wrong with making money online, especially if you are creating something that takes your time and also provides value in the process. Second, this blog and the financial statements above are for inspiration and motivation -- there is no bragging on my side. I have many friends online that are doing five-to-six figures per month, and some even push the occasional seven-figure month!
With more than 20 years of experience in the world of online marketing and blogging, I've had the opportunity to personally generate millions of dollars online -- mainly through affiliate marketing and by offering consulting and marketing services. Again, these results aren't typical, but if you put in the work and effort, there is no reason that you can't find success as a blogger or affiliate marketer.
No matter what market you might want to jump into, or the specialized skill or expertise you have to offer, at the end of the day there is a whole world of financial opportunities out there for you to take advantage of.

Did you know that there are currently more than a BILLION active websites and blogs on the internet today? It's true, and thousands of new sites are going live daily. With all of these new sites and bloggers going live with new content, it's getting harder and harder to create a successful blog and rank above the competition in the search engines.
So what's a site owner, blogger, or brand to do?
Simple... make sure you have a great foundation and concept in place from day one!
This is exactly what I cover and walk students through in my "The Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing and Blogging" course. Along with this, we also cover some of the most common mistakes made by bloggers when first starting out.
Here are a few of the most common ones and how to fix them:
One of the biggest reasons why bloggers fail to find success is that they are focusing all of their effort on just creating content. Discover why it's important to not just create content but to also focus on 'evergreen' content that grows and generates revenue for your blog while you sleep. At the same time, you already need to know how to effectively rank your content in search, and go viral on social media.
Have you ever been so excited about something that you just jumped in without any preparation? Along with millions of other people, I'm guilty of this myself. However, when starting a blog (and especially if you want to make money), this can be a huge disaster. Before starting your blog, you need to find the right niche market, know who your audience, how to provide value and also monetize the process.
Let's face it... starting a blog is nothing special. All it takes is a domain name, a web hosting plan, and installing a free copy of WordPress. The magic actually starts after all of this, and when the blood, sweat, and tears have gone into the creation of your site. With that being said, if you want to have an online business, you need to treat it like a business! Just because it's easy to start a blog or website, it doesn't mean it will be easy to compete against a billion sites.
These are just a few of the main problems and pressure points that bloggers and online entrepreneurs deal with daily. To help combat against these issues, and give everyone the opportunity to create a life-changing blog, I compiled everything I learned over the past 20 years and created "The Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing and Blogging" course.
Hundreds of people have already taken advantage of what this easy to follow and video-based course has to offer.
Here's what some of our top students have to say.
