    That is kind of hard to answer... all depends on the audience you are trying to draw in, in my opinion. Some people are very visual. A good logo would be a MUST to get them to go any further. Then there are others that may not even pay attention to details like a logo and go just for the information because it popped up on a google search. As a safe bet, ALWAYS make finding the perfect logo a priority. Certainly can't hurt, right?

    For me LOGO represents entirely yourself. It is like defining your own brand, your own concept so I will definitely suggest that you make your own one. It will make you more unique and interesting. Logos which are unique and not resembling to other makes it more realistic and easily remembered.

    Believe me, in the end of the day, you will be proud that you make everything about your blog.
    Remember, it is less cost but definitely will burn your brain so concentrate and have fun, creating your own logo.

    I was thinking some things like these too but I just don't know if it is so important and it will help me or not. I have tried to make a good one myself but I just can't seem to make one that I am very happy with.

    Keep on it! You'll know when it's the right one. Don't immediately dismiss a logo design. Keep comibg back to ones and see if you start to feel better about it. Best of luck to you!

    I keep trying but since I don't know that much about logo design it is harder for me to know how to design a good one but I try to many times and keep working at it. Thank you.

    Some people say that if you are just a normal blogger then it is not that important. Do you think you must be a top blogger for it to matter or us little guys it is important too?

    I never really realized how important a logo is for your success but after reading several blog posts about it and some big brands that say that their logo was very important in the amount of success that they achieved I have come to think that it is probably more important than many people think.

    Get yourself some good, unique and that stands out from other logo's, especially those by competitors and it might give you an edge in the competition that you need.

    First things first what do you want, people to remember on your blog? I think the first answer here is the content, and next the logo or branding. I think this is a heart of the blog and a branding of the blog. If you have a logo they have a brand that they will remember to the future. The logo tells prospects and current visitor of your blog and what do you stand for. If your blogs name doesn’t do it anymore, it’s probably this is the best time to get a logo including a tagline.

    Well Logos for any Blog is also important. It is the way of representing your style , your originality, and your name. But Logo is just a trademark. The most important the most is what is the content of your Blog, and be sure that your logo had a perfect representation for your Blog. I mean accuracy of Logo is too important. It must be clear and the details is perfect for eyes to see.

    But some Blog has no Logo and still have a good content, so basically trademark is just a choice, a choice that if you want people to remember you in just one images differently make a Logo on your own.

    If you are a newbie on blogging then start with your self as long as you made it unique and being passionate on it then you don't need to pay professionals.

    The most challenging way when it comes on blogging is to start with your self.

    Putting a logo on your site represents who you are or your company. It is an identifier of your purpose and the kind of perspective that you are trying to imply. Crucial thoughts in the making and publishing a logo is needed. It must be sensible, logical and most importantly ARTISTIC to get more attention and attraction.

    Logo can easily catch everyone's mind. It can easily retain and linger longer to massive number of people.

    Yes I want people to always remember my logo but I need to get a better one than I am using right now I think. How do I know how to come up with a tagline?
    I have seen many blogs that do not have a logo but just colored text. Do you think that because it is simple it looks better or more modern?

    If you can make one, then I suggest you do one for now, after all, you said so that you are keen into using your money for the entire business. But if you feel that what you create does not have an impact, then look for some affordable professionals to design you a logo that will suit you and your niche.

    One thing I learned about this is, you can change your logo as you go along but keeping the original touch to it. And also, make sure that the logo you will be paying for isn't just an evolution of some logo that you can search on the internet and twerk it up a little to make it your own.

    It is important to have a logo because logo represents you or your company. This way, it expresses what are you behind those logo or what are you trying to promote. It gives them an idea and memory for example your services is arts and crafts and clients like the way you create your crafts but you don't have company logo so they will have difficulty finding your company. A lot of businesses unintentionally might have the same company name so logo is important to know the identity of your company or you. It will easy for them to remember or find you because you have your own logo. It is your ownership and if someone ask you to do logo, it is pricey especially big companies because logo will be expose all over the world so people around the world will know about your logo or many folks can see your logo so it is better to have a good logo.

    I have been just using the one I made myself but I think I am going to get a professional one soon. How do I find affordable professionals though? Do you know any?

    I am wanting to get one made for me that will be unique and will make it easy for people to remember it. I just do not know what it should look like though.
