Many bloggers are reluctant to spend any money on blogging. There is often a notion that bloggers should be able to do everything and there is no need to spend money. However, if we try to specialise in everything, we spend too long learning how to do things. Yes, a blogger needs to be a jack of all trades, but, there are some things which are better to pay other people to do.
In the beginning of my blogging I designed a lot of my own logos; they weren’t bad, but, they weren’t great. Then I started paying professionals to design a logo. For a relatively modest investment you get a good return.
