When you’re first starting out with your blog, paying a designer to create a logo is probably out of reach.
There are already expenses like your hosting plan, a domain, a sweet-ass blog theme, and maybe some things like Tailwind to grow your social media accounts.
But, having a professional-looking logo makes your blog look like a BUSINESS.
That’s really important if you’re trying to make money blogging or turn your blog into your job. #goals
I’m still in the “lean startup” stage over here, so I haven’t spent a lot on design for this blog (#spoileralert I know 🙄).
In this post, I’m gonna walk you through creating a pro looking logo online, with no tools other than just your web browser, with LogoJoy!
Mmkay, so for this post, I’m going to create a logo right alongside you… I’m gonna make a logo for my first Really Big Thing: a course called Blog SEO Bootcamp.
I’m working on it now, so it won’t be out for a few more months, but I’m super excited about it, and about teaching more of my SEO skillz, yo.
Anyway. Let’s make some logo magic.

Step 1: Go to LogoJoy
Head over to LogoJoy . You’ll see this message. Type in your blog name and hit the blue button.
Step 2: Pick Logos You Like
LogoJoy asks you to pick at least 5 logos you like so it can get a sense of your style.
Just scroll down and click on the ones you like, even if they’re not exactly what you want your logo to look like. It’s just to get an idea of your overall likes/dislikes.
Step 3: Pick Some Colours
Choose as many colours as you like for your new logo!
If you hover over each colour, LogoJoy will tell you a bit about what each colour means when it comes to branding and design.
Certain colours are associated with certain moods or feelings. For example, blue inspires trust, loyalty and stability. Think IBM or Microsoft, right? There’s a reason people pick blue…
Click “Continue” when you’re done.
Step 4: Name & Tagline
Add a slogan to go with your biz name if you like.
You don’t have to, but if you want something included in your logo, now’s the time to add it.
For example, instead of just “Blog SEO Bootcamp” for my logo, I could add a tagline of, “SEO 101 for bloggers, all in one place.”
Or something better than that, whatev.
