Not too long ago, we got a few more fonts to choose from, here in WordPress dot com. Free of charge, even! It’s very nice.
There are times I wish all fonts were web-fonts. In case you didn’t know, Google has something called Google Fonts … take a peek, there are hundreds of them [708 to be precise]. They’re free to use, but in order to do so, you have to have a web site of your own — not a WordPress like this. Even if you have the paid upgrade, you don’t have access to the < head > code. No matter what fancy font you use in your email … if the other person doesn’t have it installed on his or her computer … it doesn’t matter, it won’t show.
Or perhaps it’s a blessing — with people’s different taste in stuff, remembering animated backgrounds, that would probably render many pages more or less unreadable.
My blog title, right now, is the font Cinzel … provided by WordPress, obviously. I could download a font from Google, type up the word Tassitus and make an image of it. However … I’ve heard that isn’t so good for SEO [who the heck would search for tassitus anyway?! 🙂]
