I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the blue background because I think RecruitingBlogs.com is strong enough by itself....I REALLY like the font you chose, and think the guy w/ the tie is a little too stuffy for this audience...and I think we should come up w/ something to add to the comment bubble...A tagline? Think this will offer integrity to the site in a fun, playful way...Is there a graphic to resemble network of people? I've attached one but may be too cliche... Happy 4th to everyone!
I really like the top right logo from RercruiterGuy. The message is subtle, yet strong. It has staying power and says a lot without having to say alot! There will always be conversations so it will support the evolution of the site as it might explore new directions over time. Maybe Jason's hat could sit off-center on the top of the caption bubble...sort of like the Cat in the Hat!
