We have a logo!

You’ll be seeing some changes around here.

I know what you’re thinking: What? You’ve only been up and running for a couple of weeks!

Yep, that’s true. However, I’m attending a conference called Bloggers and Brands at the end of April and I’m learning about ways to monetize my blog.

Maybe I’ll find a dog-food supplier who wants me to pump their wares.

Maybe I’ll hook up with a car dealership who wants to learn more about how blogging can spread their message and help customer service.

Or maybe Shep and I will just keep wandering around on our own, looking for cool and old things to write about.

There will be some tweaks coming to the website. In the meantime, I want to tell you about Nate Schmold. Nate owns and operates 80bit.com.

I put out a word on Twitter, asking if anyone knew a cartoonist. My pal, James Callsen, turned me over to Nate.

In an email, I wrote something like: me and Shep on the road in my truck, me holding my camera. Within an hour, Nate had a next-to-perfect mockup. We mashed over a few details and late last night, Nate sent me the final product.

I couldn’t be happier. It’s like he read my mind. Nate is an incredible talent, plus he’s open to suggestions and is very responsive and communicative. I highly recommend using Nate if you have a cartoon logo in mind.

And now, without further adieu, I give you the new logo for Our Great Escape:
