Spunky Junky got some plastic surgery. Obviously. And I was the doc. Really, no joke. hahahaha. Anyway, Hunk talked me into revamping my blog by myself. Don't get me wrong there are some fan-tabulous designers out there, he just thought that it would be a good learning experience for me. Sooo, after a crying session in my closet and lots and lots of 7Up I finally have a new look, and a new appreciation for those that design blogs for a living. If you are reading this--you are my hero. I am sending a big hug your way!
Disclaimer: I am king of computer illiterate.
So when I began to revamp my blog I wanted to create a new design with vibrant colors and awesome fonts. Unfortunately, I needed to search out and download new fonts to help me fulfill my vision. I am here today to show you how I downloaded mine.
Once you have found your lovely font save it to your computer. I made a folder on my desktop called "new fonts" and downloaded all my "new" fonts into this folder.
compressed (zipped) folder. Basically a zipped folder means that the document has been compressed to a much smaller size. You will need to unzip it. hahaha.
How to unzip a folder:
1. right click on the folder
2. Click "extract all"
true type font files are just digital copies of the fonts. These are the files that you will save with the original fonts on your computer.
How to save "new" fonts with the already existant fonts on your computer:
1. Press the "Start" in the lower left corner
2. Go to "Control Panel"
3. Click on the folder labeled "Fonts"
Once you do this your screen may go dark for a second. Don't panic...I am a professional. hahaha. In no time at all a box will pop open and it will say, "Windows needs permission to continue," click>continue.
Start>Control Panel>Font Folder.
Tadah! New Fonts that are all free! Next week I will be showing you how I used my new fonts to create my header, buttons, and signature!
