It’s no secret that Anne from Love the Here and Now loves fonts. She’s shared bunches of her favorite paid and free fonts for a while now and continues to share the love. I’ve definitely followed her lead and downloaded a few of my favorites that I use for my blog graphics. So today, we’re teaming up to share with you our favorite fonts to use for our blogs.
For me, anything free is better. Can you believe I still don’t have my credit card linked to my iTunes account? Seriously. I rarely buy anything if I can find it free elsewhere. So I’ve rounded up my top free fonts that I love to use as much as I can.
1. Sail, by Font Squirrel
2. Shorelines, by DaFont
3. Learning Curve, by Blue Vinyl Fonts
4. Italic C, by Fontsner
There are other web fonts that I use pretty frequently which you don’t even need to download because they are almost always already available. These are Raleway, Playfair Display, and Satisfy. I almost always use these when I develop my images, and these fonts are all available on Canva (which I primarily use to make blog graphics!).
Hi there! I’m Anne and I am thrilled to be working with Alanna today. When Alanna proposed the idea of sharing my favorite 4 fonts I was excited. The panic snuck in. Asking me to choose 4 favorite fonts is tough. I am a font addict. I love finding new fonts and adding them to my ever-growing collection. I do think that everyone should have their go to fonts and use them as their main fonts. For me this is Bombshell Pro and Source Sans Pro. They are everywhere on my blog, Love the Here and Now. That doesn’t stop me from loving other fonts though. Today I am sharing with you my top fonts in 4 different font styles: a script font, a mixed font, a sans serif font, and a brush script font.
I love script fonts but some tend to be overbearing and too decorative. Cantoni Basic is light and feminine with just enough of a decorative look for me.
This is the font I labeled as a mixed font. It has a script like feel but also a brushed stroke look. It is the font taking the blogging world by storm recently…you see it in tons of blog designs and graphics. I can’t blame people for using it…I’m a huge fan!
Every blog needs a decent sans serif font that they can use to anchor their decorative fonts. Print Clearly fits the bill nicely.
I love brushed script fonts as they tend to look more artistic and handwritten. Manhattan Darling is my go-to when I want to use a brushed script font.
