Trademark filing - which USPTO package is best?

Hi

I'm going to file my blog trademark again. Lame, but I neglected to do the final step one time, because I was so annoyed with the seeming endless ( unstoppable) billings. It felt like a Nigerian scam. Truly, I was suspicious and concerned.

Anyway, forget about it. I'm going to file again and there are 3 options. Does it matter which one I use? - for a blog name trademark? Also, would a logo filing be done later? The costs are complicated?  What will they be?

This is the initial page - notice the feeling-to-be-never-ending fees,      here

Thanks

Since I am neither, and since there is no information beyond your declaration, it is hard to answer.
