A quick look at what a logo is and why it doesn’t have to be complicated to make one
If you’re reading this post, you’re probably wondering if there is even a need for you to have a logo for your blog.
So before you go any further, I’m just going to say it. Yeah, you do.
Your logo helps to define who you are and gives your blog an element that is recognizable.
Before you start to sigh or stress out, remember your logo doesn’t have to be fancy, over the top, or simply overcomplicated. Plus you can always source someone else to design it – bonus!
What is a logo?
A logo simply serves as a visual representation of your blog name, it’s simple as that.
Take our logo, for example. The hardest part was figuring out our blog name. The logo took maybe a few hours over a day or two to create with a few different variations, and that was that. It’s just text, but it works for us.
If the name of your blog is Kacey Jones, then simply grab a nice font, make it bigger, and stick it on your blog. How does it look? Is it simple and say what your blog name is? Yes, does it portray a message? Maybe not, but let’s be real, you don’t have to overthink a logo.
Let’s say Kacey Jones is a blogger who focuses on botanical oils, and her blog is aimed at women. Now how does she say that with just her name?
Maybe the font she chooses is pretty and feminine. Or maybe she has a dainty botanical illustration to underline her name. Now, with those simple changes, her blog logo says more, and it didn’t kill her to create it.
So yes, you’re best to have a blog logo as overtime it will become a part of your brand, but make your logo is for you and for what suits your brand and business.
If in the future, you fall out of love with your logo or run into some kind of trouble, then don’t sweat it. It’s a tiny bit of an inconvenience, but you can simply rebrand and get back on it.
So we’ve established that you need a logo, so what happens now?
