“Backgrounds and Fonts” Challenge
Time for two more free tweaks that add a lot of texture to your blog — backgrounds and fonts.
Today, preview three different background colors or patterns, and three different fonts. Notice what they do to the feel of your blog. Visit the resource page to explore:
- How to add and edit backgrounds
- Color relationships, and how to use them
- How to choose and update fonts
Every edit-able part of your theme lets you put your stamp on your blog, so leave no tweakable element un-tweaked! A background grounds your blog — it’s one of the largest elements of your theme, and has the potential for lots of impact. Fonts also add tremendous personality, and a range of free Google fonts is available to every WordPress.com blogger.
