Hmph thought I’ll be able to edit the default font type and size for the WordPress theme I’m using, but nooooo. Not unless I’m willing to pay for the CSS upgrade, and to do that I need a good command of CSS. (What is CSS?) Looks like WordPress doesn’t offer people much control over their blogs after all, save for those IT pros who are willing to fork out money to make their blogs pretty :-(

Actually I’ve checked out the forums that teach users how to change the fonts for individual posts, and have tried it successfully, BUT after doing that, all the breaks in between separate paragraphs just mysteriously disappeared. WHY?!?! I’ve inserted <p>s and <br>s frantically to no avail. So I looked up the official WordPress support page, and it essentially says, “It’s a hassle. Don’t bother changing your font.

Guess they’re right. I gave up! So you readers (presuming that there’s any) will have to struggle with this tiny Arial font. Will train your eyesight!  Then next time you’ll be able to see all the way down to the last row of this:

Eye Chart

I’m nervous! ADM tea party tomorrow! But after that I’ll be meeting old friends, for a combined 3-in-1 celebration :-D

ROFL. Anyway, i get what u mean abt the paragraphs and breaks thing. Sometimes it irritates me too, but i generally manage to fumble my way thru until i get what i want, lol.
Maybe blogger is a better host if u wanna personalise yr blog but dun have the technical skills to do them(like me).. lol.. But i wouldn’t know since i hvnt tried wordpress before.. haha

nvm i’m sort of used to wordpress alr, and i prefer the name wordpress over blogspot. (haha actually that was my primary concern!) plus the creators of wordpress are rich so they won’t have to resort to putting ads on everyone’s blogs someday, like livejournal.
