  1. This is a really easy guide for using Google fonts on Blogger and a self hosted WordPress site, but would you also know the steps to doing the same for Tumblr?

    Is it also possible to host the fonts directly on my website without needing to fetch them from Google first? Am I able to download the font type directly and upload through ftp?

    1. To use Google webfonts in Tumblr, I assume you would head to the theme editing section in Tumblr and put in the relevant code from above in the same sections (so the tag that tells the webpage to fetch the font from Google in the <head> section, and the name of the font wherever you want it)

      With regards to self hosting web fonts, it is possible, but it is probably a lot easier for most people to make sure that if the font isn’t available that their site is still readable – it’s better that your site isn’t looking as perfect as it should than it not work at all!

    1. Hi Emma!
      It’s something I’m working on at the moment, but as you can imagine, it’s a huge topic :) Are you looking to move over your current blog, or start a new one?

      1. Thanks for your reply! I am looking to move my current blog to being Self Hosted, but I don’t really know where to start. What to look for with a hosting provider, how much you should expect to pay, is this monthly or yearly, what widgets etc I can get? It’s a bit of a mine field of information out there!
