Ways to Customize your Blog, Part 2
5 Google font resources that will help add your personality to your blog
Now that you’ve picked a color palette and created a logo the next step is to find some fonts that compliment your style and each other.
You don’t have to stick with the styles that come with your new template. You can change it up with some Google Fonts to make it your own. For most premium themes updating the fonts can easily be done through the template interface like the ones below.
In other cases you may have to make edits to the CSS. But before that you need to pick your fonts. You will need to decide what you are going to use for blog titles, your copy text and don’t forget your navigation. For me selecting complimentary fonts is like trying to find something to match that blue shirt in your closet that doesn’t quite match your jeans.
Luckily there are “designers” out there that have taken out the guess work and I’ve collected some great Google web font combinations for your next blog project.

It so easy to swap them out you can try different combinations until you find the one that suits your site. *Just remember if you have a caching plug-in installed you’ll won’t to disable it while you are testing.
