The name of my blog is Techussion. Why the name? Since we will promote discussions on the comments section, and it will be about technology: tech + discussion = techussion.com.
Perhaps the logo can promote discussion with some icon, such as a comment bubble, etc. HOWEVER...I am open to all ideas and concepts, so don't base the entire design off this one comment.
I would also like to incorporate the following slogan: "Making Tech Simple".
Please check my site ( http://techussion.com/ ) to see the color scheme of the blog. Obviously, I would like my logo to coordinate.
The space allocated for a logo on my current theme is 340px × 118px, so be sure that your concept will be able to work in this area.
Message me with any questions! I look forward to working with you and seeing what you all have to offer.
UPDATE: As I'm reviewing each of your submissions I'm noticing that I'm leaning more toward modern, simplistic logos with light typography. I don't necessarily want a bold logo, yet a logo that will make a bold statement.
A good logo is unique and memorable. It should express something about the company it represents. It should take into account the technical considerations and the feel for the site. A good logo should express a strong message.
The symbolism should be immediately clear, without it being too clichéd.
The logo should look friendly, and something that is memorable and will create an online brand.
