I have been working on a new blog - 'Tweet-sized advice for designers and design clients by seasoned professionals collected from questions posted on Twitter' - http://design-survival.com/ - I would gladly accept any advice for the site from Dribbble members.
The logo has a few different things going on to cover the various topics I plan to post.
Crossed pencils - This conveys the battle that is freelancing, when I started I felt that it was a real struggle and the crossed pencils represent this. It also covers the written aspect of the content.
Wireless mouse - Communication, networking and the control over individual projects.
Computer - The actual work aspect.
The Book - Learning and personal development/ Time out to relax
101 - Getting to grips with the basics, both design and business.
It has been mentioned the monitor and mouse are a bit too curvy so would be interested to get a few more opinions.

I love this logo.
Thanks Jan! I'm still up for changing bits and pieces of this not sure I'm quite there yet.
I welcome this project buddy, with an emphasis on tips for clients if possible ;)
Thanks Alen - Maybe you could add one from experience? - http://design-survival.com/advice-for-clients/
Fantastic logo, Richard.
I like the concept too.
Contributed to "Advice for Clients". Hope you find it useful enough to add :)
Thanks Emir really appreciate it, I have added your advice to the site.
I will ad something when I start using Twitter :) Yeah, yeah, booooo, booooooo :)
Haha, it's really just a distraction!
Badass, just really badass.
Nice logo Rich. I think that you're doing really big things for design community. This is small step for you but paramount for all of us. I guess this will lead me one step closer to go absolutely freelance :)
Hey Andrej thanks for the comment, I got the impression you were a full time freelancer, planning on making the jump soon?
I work at ad agency and I am a part time freelancer for now.
I definitely want to be my own boss someday but how soon it will be...we'll see...
An ad agency, always fancied a stint in one of those, nothing like Mad Men?
Not really, but anyway being nine to five guy is not a good thing no matter what.
Never tried it myself, the ability to occasionally say no thank you is a real bonus. thanks for your contribution to the blog, I will add it today.
Now this is a great logo, checking out your blog too.
Thanks Stefan, if you would like to contribute something to either topic pls feel free to add it in the comment section and I will place it into the article.
Richard the Incredible.
