top-5-fonts-for-your-blog-titleKnow what’s worse than a bad blog title? A bad blog title with a bad blog font. After you start a blog, choose a strong blog title, and make it stand out with a bold font. Something that encompasses what your blog is about but is also legible.  When you choose a font, keep in mind that it should embody whatever your blog is about.  Whether it’s a humor blog or a blog about business, your font should stand for that essence.

These five fonts are great tried and true oldies but goodies.

Arial

Ahhhh Ariel. That good old familiar sans serif favorite. If you have a computer, then chances are you have definitely seen Arial. You see it everywhere because of its versatility and simplistic beauty.  It makes a strong blog title because it’s curves and lines are concise and clean.  Particularly in bold, it punches the eye in a matter of fact and direct way.  Some people may argue it’s ubiquitous, but that may work in your favor.  People like what they know.

Myriad Pro

Adobe says of this font: “Myriad has a warmth and readability that result from the humanistic treatment of letter proportions and design detail. Myriad Pro’s clean open shapes, precise letterfit, and extensive kerning pairs make this unified family…comfortable to read, while the wide variety of weights and widths in the family provide a generous creative palette for even the most demanding display typography.” Multiple companies have made this their font choice, from Wells Fargo to Walmart.

League Gothic

Conservative. Classic. Distinct. To the point.  If you have a business blog, this may be a great option for you as it screams sophistication. It has a certain femininity which appeals to women but can also work great for a male blog. This font is also an excellent choice for subheaders and the body of your blog.  It looks great in italic as well.

Corbel

This font was originally designed for Microsoft by a British font designer named Jeremy Tankard, who also designed custom fonts for Adobe and Fontshop. Jeremy says of his design approach, “Having not been taught calligraphy, I feel free to approach a character’s form without the logic of how a stroke would move and be created. The letters are more carved than drawn.” This explains perfectly what is so beautiful about this font and why it makes a strongly carved title font.

Avante Garde

The original version of this font was uppercase.  Nowadays, there are multiple versions not limited to uppercase.  It is a tight and clean typeface which is used by many large businesses that you see every day.  Ever heard of that little company Adidas? Avante Garde.  How about Justin Bieber, have you heard of that singer? His logo is none other than Avante Garde. This sans serif font is a favorite across the board.  Consider using this font for your blog title if you like a classic favorite that gets its point across in a concise style.

There is no flair or fanfare here. Just an all around honest font that gets its point across.
