New Square Logo

No, not THAT one…

Not THAT one, either…

I have wanted a square logo for my blog for a while, for various sites, blog link-ups, etc.  So I did a square variation on the header at the top of the page. 

new blog logo WHITE

For anyone who’s wondering what the symbols mean, it’s actually pretty self-explanatory.  I just opened up the symbol/webdings/wingdings fonts and picked out a bunch that seemed to represent what goes on around here on a typical “day in the life.”  I ended up with: a family, shouting, parking = shlepping around by car, bicycle (we love bikes), late nights, eating and Jewy-Jewishness.

That said, Fiverr is my new obsession this weekend.  I am on desperate to pay somebody $5 to do something… anything!

Oh – I made a red version, but I don’t like it as much…

Feedback, anyone???

UPDATE:  Based on the single piece of feedback I’ve received, I also created a full-colour version of the “stark” (I like it!) white logo above… I was thinking colourful, but not a rainbow, and I found this lovely background colourway, of which I used only a small section.  Hmm… I like the colour, but the bicycle and moon are a little faded-out in this version. FIXED!

More feedback?  Other than from people sitting behind me on the sofa as I type this…???

  1. Hmm... you're right, I don't like the red one either, but the white one is kind of stark. What if you used some colour in the text?

    You can pay me $5 to, um, sew something? Does NR need a pair of bicycle shorts? A bandana with giraffes on it?

  2. I like it, especially the rainbow one. The hyphenated "Adven-tures" is a little confusing for the first second, but I'm guessing that's how it has to be because of length. Otherwise, I like it!

    Where will you use this - like a button? I've been trying to get it together and get a button. But I have no photo manipulation software (in addition to having devoted very little time to it), so trying is as far as it has gone for me. So far.

  3. @Amital - button, yes, for linkies and I also needed a logo for my new facebook page. :-)

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
