When you ever decide to start a blog, you have to conceptualize what your blog should be. Among the things you will consider are content, layout, color scheme and logo. You must develop your brand and when you do that, you consider every aspect of your blog. Logo is important because like any other logos of established companies, it becomes a representation of your blog. Another thing is that with logo on your blog, your site is perceived to be legit and trustworthy. It connotes professionalism and power branding.
While you can opt to just use a simple text for your name and a tagline, it is nice to have a custom logo. It has a power to draw readership and followers. Therefore, you might want to give it some effort.
You can hire someone to do it for you, but let me share with you several options where you can make the logo yourself and where you can see people who will do it for you.
Using Photoshop can be costly, but if you have access then you can use it to make your own blog logo. If not, you can try GIMP which is a photo editing tool. This is available on a Linux platform and it’s for free. If you have an idea on what your logo is going to be and you have a good eye for colours, I’m sure you can come up with a good one.
This is also a free source for custom logos. Font styles are numerous and you can set what colours to use.
In case you do not have the patience of photo editing then here is an option for you. Cooltext is an amazing site that can help you make text logos. You can play with the various fonts, colours and effects. This is a free site and you can have your logo in an instant. What is also nice is that it can create transparent logos if this is what you prefer.
If you do not have the patience to do the work, you can go to Fiverr. Fiverr is a big community and you can find people here who can do the job for you at a very affordable fee. It may not be as professional as you would want it to be but it’s acceptable and useable.
If you are looking for a professional work, then this should be the place to check. You can avail of professional services here at reasonable prices. The turn-around time for orders is impressive. Having to pay around $27 is worth it. What is so cool is that you can have it revised until you become satisfied. I’ve tried this site and if I can remember it right, I requested 7 revisions for one order.
So, there you go. You now have an idea what to do and where to go to get that logo for your blog.
