How Font Choices Can Make or Break Your Blog

How Font Choices Can Make or Break Your Blog

Ever wondered why your blog doesn't quite hit the mark? Well, let’s talk about something that might be flying under your radar – fonts! Yep, those little letter buddies that make your words look good (or not).

I used to be all about the content, thinking, "Who cares about fonts, right?" But guess what? Fonts matter more than you think. They’re like the fashion of your blog - set the wrong tone, and it’s like wearing socks with sandals. Yikes! 

I’ll be straight with you—I’m a bit of a font geek. It might sound strange, but I’m low-key obsessed with typography. I get a kick out of fonts that have this classy vibe. Trust me, it can totally elevate your blog game! I’m guilty of judging a blog based on its font choices #SorryNotSorry. The readability factor is huge for me!

First off, your font sets the vibe. It’s like the outfit your blog wears every day. Fonts set the mood and the vibes, and vibe matters in this day and age.

Readability is key, people! If your readers can’t breeze through your content like it’s a cool Instagram caption, you might be losing them. That’s where fonts swoop in to save the day. Choosing the right ones can turn your blog into a smooth reading experience.

Size matters! No one likes to squint at a screen, right? Make sure your font size is just right – not too big, not too small. You want your readers to nod along, not squirm.

Now, I’m not a font expert, but I’ve been around the blogging block enough times to know what works. Drumroll, please! Here are some font faves that’ll have your blog looking fire:

  1. Playfair Display: If your blog is all about class and sophistication, this font is your BFF. Playfair is that classy friend who always dresses to impress – perfect for headings.
  2. Work Sans: This one is sleek and modern, perfect for those clean, minimalist vibes. Think of it as the Marie Kondo of fonts – it sparks joy! Work Sans is the cool, laid-back buddy you can always count on – ideal for body text.
  3. Karla: Sleek, modern, and easy on the eyes – a triple threat!
  4. Montserrat: A versatile babe that works for pretty much any blog theme.
  5. Lora: Classy yet readable, Lora is like the girl-next-door of fonts. Friendly, approachable, and always down for a good read.
  6. Jost: It’s like the new kid on the block, fresh and modern, adding that extra flair to your blog. Need something versatile? Jost is your go-to. It’s like the chameleon of fonts, fitting in wherever you need it to.

What font are you using on your blog? What are your favorite go-to fonts?


  1. My favourite font always be Raleway too. I find it so comfortable to read on the big or small screen. Would love to check out the others fonts too 😊

  2. my fav is Montserrat, sebab mudah baca dan nampak bold :D

    1. Betul tu BV, Montserrat memang nampak bold and bulat bulat je hehehe

  3. Me too! I always judge a blog based on the choice of the font. I don't like fancy and colorful fonts. I've came across a blog that use yellow as the body font color 😅

    I love Playfair Display and Raleway! But currently I'm using Karla for my blog.

  4. I love didact gothic & muli, tapi ramai sangat pakai sekarang rasa macam tak best, ahahaha. Btw, you got really got taste in choosing font. Mai pun sejenis yang pentingkan typography dalam design blog.
