Fonts for Bloggers

January 13, 2015 / by Liz

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with fonts. Just recently, I asked my husband for a font for Christmas…. but he thought it was a bit ridiculous to buy me a font for Christmas. (And I can’t say I disagree). But weird or not, I love them. I’m constantly looking at cards or signs or menus, in search of new fonts. I love how they can be used to entirely change the look of a picture or graphic, and how they can be everything from professional to playful. I can’t be the only person like this? Can I?! Anyway, I thought I’d post some fun fonts for bloggers today, as well as some great font resources (yes, you can download TONS of fonts online). Well, not just bloggers really – these could be used for tons of things – but probably not report writing. So without further ado…

As you can see, dafont is a great resource – thousands and thousands of free fonts. My other favourite place to go for great, free fonts (albeit a smaller selection) is lost type. And then there’s Font Squirrel, and MyFonts.

And if you’re looking for fonts to use on your actual site (rather than for photo editing, etc.), there’s always Google Fonts. I’ve wanted to change my blog fonts for ages, but had been avoiding it because it required some actual html coding. But I finally figured it out this past weekend, and I love the new look!
