New Font

I felt that my previous font was too small and boring.
I switched to the one that you see now. 
I had to switch it back because I realized that when I change the font
then it messes up the line/paragraph formats. Help!! 
Any advice on how to change the font without causing that?

  1. I definitely like it better. It does seem a bit narrow though. Other than that, I think the size is just right. :)

  2. I like the font.... but if you had long paragraphs I probably would be uncomfortable reading it.

    I agree-- most fonts for blogs are BOOOOORING. But there are so few really nice fonts that are readable.

  3. I like this new font but wish it wasn't so narrow...hmmmm. I will fiddle around some more to see if there is something better.

    P.S. I am not good at making little decisions like this, so any recommendations are appreciated. :)

  4. Well, Blogger does have a habit of scrunching together paragraphs and photos with any changes made (even when the settings are altered). What I do is apply the html <p> tag to the beginning of every paragraph/photo, and apply the end-tag <p/> to the end of each. That way it spaces it like paragraphs. The only disadvantage is the slight spacing-out of lines of text, though it is very small. Another thing is that if you use the html for paragraphs, Blogger removes them every time you edit your post, so a backup text file is the best idea. Yes, a bit to do each time, but it is so worth it. I've been doing that almost since day 1 with my site and I never have any spacing trouble. Hope that helps. :)

  5. I like your new font too, but I would find it a little more readable if it were bigger. I'm sorry I don't have any recommendations...I try to mess with my blog as little as possible so I don't know much about other fonts, LOL!!

  6. To adjust line height and spacing, look for things such as "font-size," "line-height," and "line spacing" in your template. Templates differ a lot from blog to blog. You may need to experiment a bit. Be sure to download the XML template file before you make any major changes, just in case you accidentally do something! I wrote a tutorial on how to backup your Blogger XML template on my tech how-to blog: http://theoldergeek.com/blogging-how-to/bloggerht/how-to-back-up-your-blogger-template.

    If you have questions, feel free to ask me. I try to write tutorials based on reader input.
