When you start creatingyour blog, first thing which needs an attention is how you want to show your blog name on your blog or your. This is as important as your name in life, it has the power to give a brand and a professional look to your blog.
There is always an option to go with the simple text which comes with WordPress and just show it and the tag line in your header, but I am always in a favor of not using it.
When you start your blog design (Check:best practices for designing blog) the first thing is which comes on a page is custom logo for your blog. It is one of the first things which a visitor sees, so you might want to make an impression there. Also if your logo is creative, a person might remember it easily.
If you try to look for custom logo you will find the professional services are costing way more and it may not be in your budget to start with, so here is 5 easy way to create your custom logos.
Photoshop will cost you some money, but if you have the access to this tool it can be used to create custom logo. GIMP is a free photo editing tool available on Linux platform. The only requirements are an idea about basic photo editing utilities and color combination.
These tools may not be that easy to handle, but can be easy for this specific work and you should be able to create transparent text logos with some practice.
If you are not comfortable with editing you can . It is a great place to generate text logos. Cooltext allows you to create a text logo with your choice of font, colors and effect. They have a nice selection of text effects.
This service is free and you can get your logo instantly. They also allow creating transparent logo, if thats what you need.
This is another place to get a free custom logo.Urban Fontsoffer a wide verity of free font selection and you can define your own color. This can be used to create a custom logo.
You can download a choice of font and you can use a simple paint program to do the work, create a text using the downloaded font and change the colors accordingly. This is an easy way to do generate a text logo with minimal work.
This is what I usually do when I start a blog or a niche sites. There are many people onFiverrwho will create a custom logo at $5. They may not be as professional as you can get with $150 but it will be still better than the simple text which you were planning to use. This is one of the cheapest ways you can get a logo designed.
If you use this service make sure to check the reviews before order. Also there are people who provide a glimpse of their work, check that. Once you finalize the seller, you can order the service.
I prefer text logos from this service as you can give an idea about the colors and font and they will do the work for you.
This is one of the best professional services you can find with a very reasonable price. Their response time is good and you will get a specialist working with you.LogoNerdscharge $27 for a logo which is a very nominal price considering their service.
They offered unlimited reversions, which is great (I have tried until 8 revisions and they have done that without expressing any issues). They have done the logo for Makewebworld too.
Have I mentioned about their affiliate services, they have a great affiliate program where they offer 25% commission on every sale and they track the referral for lifetime. So if you refer somebody and he will end up purchasing again something from them (doesnt have to be from your site) you will get the commission. If you want to check their Affiliate program you cancheck here.

Thanks for microjobs sites like Fiverr. You can find a professional and skilled people whom are ready to provide you with your blog design for a cheap price. That is how I got my blog logos. Thanks for sharing this article.
I agree, we can get real good design very cheap from Fiverr. I prefer Fiverr for text logos and other small design work.
I am looking to have a new logo for my blog , this is a very useful post for me
Thanks Abhishek! Glad I am able to help
Another excellent tip Sanjeev! Its funny though that when I was designing the logo for my blog it is described by my friends as ancient design. Well, I could use your tips to design a better one! Thanks again.
I checked the cooltxt site and it really looks very cool to those who are looking for some stylish buttons for their blogs. Though there are other items available, but I find the buttons much interesting than the others offer like font, etc.
There are some good buttons available, I like their text logo services also. They give transparent PNGs, only thing is that you need to know the font and color you want to use
Thanks for sharing these really useful sites. They really helped me to get my logo for my own blog. Keep on the good work!
Thanks Peter, I am glad that you like the post and able to use it. Thanks for reading.
Fiverr is my favorite destination not only for logo design but many other tedious tasks. I do some selling on fiverr as well and it worth the time put into the service.
Fiver is a great place to get some cheap things done, though some caution is required as there are some below par services available (but well worth of a risk as its only 5 bucks). Good for fun and work both..
As not everybody has the right tools and skills for logo design, Fiverr is a great and cheap starting place to search for a custom logo.
But if you are looking for a more professional looking logo and you dont want to take the risk of gambling with fiverr then you should opt for LogoNerds. I think its the best option for a not so expensive but still professional looking logo.
I must say that I have tried creating a logo and a package design once, and although I enjoy drawing, I was a total amateur in design. It turned out decent, nothing fancy, but for the time and energy Ive put in the project I would have happily chose a $27 service from LogoNerds. The thing with creating the logo even if you know you have the right skills is that the customer has all these ideas and demands that will most likely drain you out.
Yes Dan, LogoNerds is really a great place, I have also tried many things before settling for them and its really a great price to save all the energy and effort, which can be utilized on creating content or promoting your blog.
new reader of your blog and found it very interesting and useful. these services are great addition into my knowledge. will try these services whenever i need thanks for sharing it with us.
Welcome to the community, hope you will fine many helpful tips around here.
I almost read your four posts and every post gives me new thing to add into my knowledge and hoping that you will keep on writing new and updated posts for us.
I checked their site, their price range may not be suitable at the start but I like the idea to get multiple design from many designers.
I love Fiverr, you can get people to do almost anything for 5 bucks.hehe.
Yes, its great and you can get many services there. The only thing is you need to go with little caution as there are many below average services also.
