If you’ve already got a blog and you’ve been searching for a cool modern logo to make it unique, I’ve got a great site for you. Logo Instant provides some great free logos in Photoshop format (.psd) which you can easily edit and modify to your liking. Every day they provide a brand new custom Web 2.0 logo

The motto posted on their website is,”You don’t have to spend big bucks anymore for designer, because this service is 100% free”. That’s something most of you can appreciate I’m sure!

For those of you who don’t know how to use Adobe Photoshop (or own it for that matter) then you can either download a free photo editor like Paint.net or Gimp (my personal favorite) to modify the logos. You’ll have to download, install, and spend a few hours getting ramped up before you’d be able to cusomize the logos. It’s not a quick easy thing to do but if you’ve got the time and are ready to learn a new useful skill, then it’s worth doing.

How To Easily Make Your Own Web 2.0 Blog Logo

It’s a question I get asked quite often and I figured it’s easier just to write a post about it. Many people who download Blogger templates or WordPress themes from our site would like to replace the default header image with one more personal and professional-looking. Some templates come with header logo or some with just plain text so it would be nice if you could spice up your blog with a cool Web 2.0 logo wouldn’t it?

There are a couple great free sites out there that allow you to instantly create a Web 2.0 header logo for your website. You don’t need any photo editing software experience or technical knowledge — just type in the text you want, select the style, font size, color, etc and voila — you’ve got a brand new Web 2.0 logo!

Two of the free sites I would recommend are http://cooltext.com and http://web2.0stylr.com which is actually how I first created the logo for this site. Here’s one I recently built in less than two shakes of a lambs tail.

Try making some logos for your blog. It’s fun, free, and simple to use for even the most basic blogger!
