Tips for Better Blogging: Fonts

One of my favorite college courses was a typography class. We got to work with ads, typography, fonts, and attempt to figure out why a certain font was used in ads/magazines/etc. It was so informational and really prompted my interest in fonts and typography.  As a blogger I have found a new love for design, typography, type faces, quotes, and the like.

Often times I come across a great quote (on Pinterest of course), however I don’t like the background or font used. Luckily, that’s an easy fix! I like fonts. But even more so, I like free fonts.When I discovered the concept of “free fonts” I think I was in typography heaven! I suddenly realized I could make my own graphics using the *free* fronts and graphics I wanted on my blog design, my photos, and for my content!

Since this realization I have downloaded more fonts than I would like to admit! Creating my own graphics and adding font to my photos makes everything a little more personal, which I love! It’s great to put my own spin on my blog and quotes I like! 

So, I compiled a list of my favorite fonts to share with you!

One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven 

I find most of my fonts on Dafont.comfont space, and 1001 free fonts. It is so easy to download fonts to your computer’s font book and use them any way you please!

Enjoy.

    Also, it's helpful to stick to 3 fonts for your blog design – one sans serif, one serif and one calligraphic. 🙂 http://www.styleoyster.blogspot.com

    I'm obsessed with fonts too. I have wayyyyy too many but when you're creating cutesy blog things or things for the classroom a cute font is mandatory. I absolutely hate when people use comic sans for things, maybe this will open their eyes to MUCH better fonts!
