So you may think, fonts are only important to web designers, well I’m here to tell you-you’re wrong. As a blogger, I see that when people enter your blogs, they don’t only pay attention to what’s actually written in your post. They find much interest in the overall design and, as the vital part of that design, beautiful fonts. Why is it important to use the appropriate fonts on your website? Like an ugly front door and porch will make you NOT want to go in the house, unsuitable and ill-favored headline will not motivate website visitors to actually read your article.

Choosing the correct font is not easy. Some might even consider it to be challenging, while others think that it doesn’t really matter what font is used. For the texts with small characters that are dragged somewhere in the corners, they are right, but choosing the correct font for headlines and other titles is crucial for maintaining your readers. There is a variety of Google Fonts. You just have to browse through them and find the one you like, the one that suits your design, something bold, with a little detail, but clean and easy to read. If for some reason you are not able to do so, just read through this list of 5 most popular fonts of 2016.
