Blog for Mental Health 2013 Badge Voting

The new year of 2013 is coming upon us, and quickly.  Last year, I started Blog for Mental Health 2012.  For those that are unaware of what Blog for Mental Health 2012 was, I’ll fill you in quickly:
Many people who suffer from mental health disorders do so in silence.  And prior to many of our own blogs, we may have done just the same.  By taking the pledge to Blog for Mental Health in the year of 2012, we celebrate our own voices that speak up in our own unique ways.  We pledge that not only do we blog about mental health topics for ourselves, but for the inspiration of others to raise their voices and tell their own stories of their own personal experiences with mental health disorders.

For more information about Blog for Mental Health 2012, visit the page.

I fully intend on continuing this pledge and tradition into the new year of 2013.  Therefore, I’ve gotten started early on the design for the Blog for Mental Health 2013 badge.  Last year, it was created solely on my own.  But this year, I’d like others to participate in selecting the official badge to represent the pledge.

The nominees are:







If you have any suggestions for combining badges, they are quite welcome.  Let the voting begin!

PS:  Please visit the comments section for additional badges that were created after the first run.

  1. I’m going with number three. They are all wonderful, but for me that one has the best touch of you in it, and while you’re being sweet to include everyone, I think it wouldn’t have the same feel without something personal to you in it.

  2. I like #1 best myself. I find the fonts on #3 and #5 a little hard to read, and #2 is so close to Comic Sans it hurts to look at it.

    But I’m a font snob, so you know, inordinately picky about that kind of thing.

  3. I like number 1!

    Could you take the lettering from number one and use the background of number 3 or 4? I like those backgrounds…I like the background of number 1 too…..I hope this hasn’t been confusing 😛

  4. I love #2! Love the jar and the blue sky! Karen x

  6. I have an idea..they are all so cool why not offer them all and let the blogger pick the one that fits their blog best?

  7. My vote is for #3

  8. I didn’t participate in this year’s pledge ( because I didn’t start blogging until March) but am keen to for 2013. And I like the last one. 🙂

  9. 1 or 4. I like 1 the best for the font and the background. I’m not for keeping the marbles in the jar as it seems like thats symbolic of containing the mental health issues or “bottling them up” and not expressing them. Of course I read things into a lot of stuff, so it could just be my opinion.

  12. They are all wonderful, but personally I love the second one in the comments section. Great font and colours on the marbles.

    Looking forward to taking the pledge next year 🙂

  15. I really like number 3! It’s neat but creative too. Good luck 🙂

  16. I like number 1 – will be easy to read when resized, and (silly) I like those color marbles best 🙂

  17. I think I like #3 the best!

  18. Hi! I’m just starting another blog on mental health on tumblr (not done editing it yet so it’s still a mess) Do you mind is I use the winning badge? I think it’s just lovely
