Having a logo on your travel blog is an important way to brand your site and to make your blog more memorable.
I have set up numerous websites and blogs and creating a logo is one of the first things I do now. As so many social media sites use avatars it is good to have something to use from the start.
Once you have a logo you can create an avatar. An avatar is a small square image typically used to identify a user on social networking sites and forums.

Creating a logo
If you are graphically gifted then you will enjoy this part of setting up your travel blog. As for me, I have trouble drawing a stickman, and I have spent whole days just browsing fonts, so I prefer to get outside help.
There are countless logo design options online, varying from free to thousands of dollars.
Forums like elance.com you can list your requirements and designers will bid on your offer.
Fiverr is cheap ($5 cheap) but really hard to find quality.
