Do yourself a favor like I did.
Pay somebody else to do it. I used Logoinn.com, but there are many other sites, along with local graphic artists, print shops, etc. I had an idea of what I wanted, gave them info about my company, and they had 3 proofs for me in a few days. Good company to deal with, but there may be a cheaper option out there. For less than $70, you can have a professionally designed logo that you'll actually enjoy looking at.
