  • Kristi, liked these fonts and the possibilities they bring. I know I can use them with my website but I was wondering how i could use them with my wordpress.com blog. Do they work in that platform?
    By the way, first time at your blog; very well done.

    • Hmm, just saw Christine’s comment below when my comment posted. She answered my wordpress question. Anyway thanks for all your insights and great information.

  • Christine says:

    I was so excited to find out about fonts until I discovered “they are only applicable to self-hosted blogs and web sites using the WordPress.org software. Plugins are not permitted here at WordPress.com for various security reasons.” Bummer.

  • Kathy says:

    I have been wondering how to do this! Thank you!

  • Thanks for this. I love it! And thank you for keeping it simple. Is there a way to automatically change the font in the blog title to ALL my posts at once? I realize this probably involves working w/ CSS and I don’t know much…but I’m willing to learn.

  • cole says:

    IF you don’t know how to work with CSS, you really shouldn’t have a blog.

  • Hope says:

    This is great help, thank you! I have really enjoyed styling my blog and changing the font can definitely change the whole feel/presentation.

  • Danylle says:

    I am having a hard time navigating the Google API option too. Could you offer some assistance?

    • Danylle says:

      I figured it out, if you stay in the old version and not the “Cloud” version it is much easier to find.

      • Thanks for the suggestion to switch to the old version. However, I’m still not seeing what I need. I clicked Create Project b/c that seemed to be the only option. What next? I don’t see key similar to the one on Kristi’s tutorial.

        • Danylle says:

          Hi Stephanie,
          I found it after you create a new project click “My Project” (or whatever you named your project) then “APIs” then “Credentials”, where it says “Create New Key”. It is really not easy to navigate that website.
          Hope it helps!

          • Thank you so much for the help. That site is NOT user friendly. After “create new key” a box came up and wanted me to chose which type of key “server key” “browser key” “android key” iOS key” ??? I feel like this is multiple choice test and I’m doing a process of elimination here. aaakkkk!

          • Kelli says:

            I created new browser key and didn’t know what to write in the box. The API key it gave me does not work 🙁 I’ve been at this for days. And today I’ve been trying for about two hours.

          • DrJulieAnn says:

            If you are in the plug-in, click on the question mark and you will see a video that walks you through it step by step. I couldn’t get it to work, either, and then discovered that I had forgotten a step. I regenerated a key and now it works!

  • Sierra says:

    I’ve always loved seeing the fonts and images on others blogs. Yet, I get all nervous at trying this on mine.

  • Great tutoria…but I’m also have difficulty in getting an API code-any hints?

  • Wow- great tutorial! Love the video instructions! Can’t wait to try!

  • thanks so much for this.. I hate figuring out the html and all that crap lol

  • {Kathy} Oh how timely! Thank you for this!

  • Adrian says:

    Does anyone know if this is an option for blogger blogs? I literally have about 8 fonts to choose from and I’m not wild about any of them.

    • Danylle says:

      Hi Adrian,
      You can access more Blogger fonts by going into to your Blogger Dashboard and click on the TEMPLATE option, from there CUSTOMIZE this will open the Blogger Template Designer click ADVANCED, Under PAGE TEXT you will have a list of fonts to choose from. Hope it helps. I doing a series of Blogger tutorials lately but haven’t gotten to the Fonts yet.

  • Thank you! Totally need tutorials!

  • Thanks for the tutorial, it looks so simple to do.

  • I wasn’t able to get an api key. There’s no developer option there. There’s all other choices but not one for a Developer API. Any other suggestions?
