The Western Online ™

The Western Online ™ (www.thewesternonline.com)™ was started by editor-in-chief Matthew Pizzolato as a short story Western site on September 4, 2009. The below image, a flaming steer logo in orange flames with blue lettering that is overlaid with the words, "thewesternonline.com," has been used regularly and continuously since The Western Online's inception in artwork, banners, YouTube videos and social media to represent the trademark for The Western Online™. Michael T. Pizzolato, associate editor and art director, created the flaming steer image for the opening of the site.
