The Blog Icon

Today I found myself in need of a blog icon and to my dismay I dont have a standardized blog icon in my art portfolio and to my surprise no such official blog icon exists. Well this just won't do, I thought. So I sat down, well in fact I was already sitting but that's not the point... *cough* OK. so I'm sitting down and thinking.. well here I will just explain the thought process in creating the icon:

Have a main focal point, it should be green to represent the fact that blogs do not require cutting down trees for paper, such as newspapers and magazines. It is estimated that 15 billion trees are cut down for paper each and every year.

Representation of bloggers, It should represent the many viewpoints, colors and cultures of bloggers around the planet. It is estimated that the number of blogs in existence as I write this article is around 320 Million and the number of posts written per day are in excess of 4.5 Million.

b for blog, what holds us together is communication. Blogs provide a great way to express yourself, communicate, give examples and share what matters with the world.

Here is the blog icon for anyone and everyone to use:

Notes:

  • The b in the icon is "Century Gothic" lower case b
  • The image shape was inspired by the national park service scenic viewpoint icon registered under the creative commons license.
