So, after about 11 months of blogging, I finally made a logo.
Keep in mind that since bicycle commuting blogs are quite prevalent, there's not a lot of room for making money on them unless you've garnered a huge amount of authority on the subject (like Paul Dorn). This isn't unique to this niche. It's blogging for money in general.
Hence the lollygagging in creating a "brand" for my blog.
Anyhow, about an hour in GIMP and I have something that is cycling related but shows my geek side.
