    NY has to have several business chambers and BNIs. Might be worth it to contact them or even join. Try AIGA too and hit up one of their networking events. Between those options your bound to run into...

    Okay, thanks very much for that. The past little while I'd halted working on design until I could figure this out since I was worried that I'd have to completely redesign everything starting at a different...

    Points per inch are irrelevant when designing for electronic displays. PPI is a print term that's necessary because things print to fixed sizes, and you need a certain amount of pixels for every halftone...

    Well I dunno, but when I think of simple, I think of less. Two letters vs 1 that incorporates both elements together. I think the logo is actually more simplistic. BUT, I do realize that the logo does need a lot of work. I don't deny that.

    To the others that have been critiquing, I feel that I have not fully explained myself and you guys seem to be assuming things. First of all, I am NOT a professional designer. I am not close to one and I won't be for a while. Second, I fear that I have mislabeled myself. When I refer to "graphic design", I mean anything related to digital visual creation. I am sorry for this, that is most entirely my fault.

    What my blog IS for, is for the wide variety of things I do: wallpapers, some logos possibly and things like that. I just want to share my content, I'm not really looking to sell anything or services (Not like anyone would want them anyway). What I DID want to do is design a logo for my blog so that it can look more complete. And no I would really rather not have someone else create one.

    Now that I got that out of the way, these are some things I think will have to happen for my design:

    -Most definitely rework the logo.
    -I think one thing that could POSSIBLY be a problem is the name. Perhaps I should consider something else so I don't seem like a branding design website?

    Lastly, I would just like to say, while I appreciate all of your criticism, could you please lighten up on some thing when you act as if I should know everything. I am just starting out, and I'm learning new things, so I won't know everything about typefaces and such, so please don't be hard on me for things like that.

    Thanks guys (And girls if there are any)

      "less" comes in many forms, you appear to be thinking less quantity, but less complexity is what you should be after
      Design is not decoration.

        I know what you're saying, but if you think about the concept itself, I would think it wouldn't be that complex.

        Anyway, I think I'm just going to restart the whole process. I'll be able to at least know which way I should go about my design, and think about all of the different ways my logo could be perceived. I think that's what you're all trying to get at, correct?
