I'm a total newbie, so I'd love specific instructions.

Here is my blog:
http://pregnancybaby411.com/

I'm want to make the category bar more "girlie" or feminine to fit the tone of my blog. I have several fonts on my computer that I'd love to use. Is it possible to customize the fonts in this theme?

Where do I upload the fonts, so that I can use the font that I want on my blog? I think that the traditional Arial, Courier New, etc. are too "blah" for what I'm trying to go for.

Is it possible? Please help!

To get into fancier fonts you would have to use a plugin like Google Fonts or TypeKit since the only fonts that will show if you don't are those that the person viewing the site has on there computer. Remember though that for websites "pretty" or "girly" fonts are sometimes less readable. Comic Sans is one font you could use that is generally "web safe" though.

Thanks. I downloaded the plugin for Google Fonts, but I want to change the font for the category bar under the header... I don't see anywhere I can do that?

Any suggestions?

The plugin only allows me to change the font for h1, h2, etc. (which are all confusing to me).. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are other plugins such as Any Font that may do what you want. Some have a cost associated with them depending on your usage though. I would do a search on wordpress.com, install a few of the font plugins and see what they offer and how difficult they are to implement.

The easiest for me, so far, is Typekit. I'm making a blog for a friend using it, because she wants a pretty font in various places on the site. Please ignore the header graphic; that's her idea. :-)

I think I've given up on how to change the Font Face in the Category Bar. I can't figure it out.
I also can't figure out how to change the Font Typeface on anything...

Here's my newest font/size related question.

I want to change the size of the font on my post body... I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I went to ATO-->Overall style and config --> body, text and links..

In the first box with the padding, font family, font size, color and background info, I changed the font size to 0.95em, but now ... (as you can see on my homepage), the first paragraph has smaller text than the other two paragraphs. I'd like all of the text to be the same size.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Instead of using 'em's use a fixed size with 'px'
