It is said that you cannot judge a book by its cover. How many times have you looked at a book cover and put it down without looking at the content inside?
Websites and blogs are like books.
The first thing that a person sees on your blog is your logo. If you make your logo appealing, they will continue to engage with your content.
If the logo is less than desirable, the reader will leave to a different site.
