Using Typekit

So I can add new fonts if I use one of the 10 or so themes that they have integrated with one WordPress. My theme, “Simpla”, which I am loving, is not one of those themes, of course. I looked at the ones that I COULD use, because I love FONTS and the one I use is important because I need to like the way it looks on the screen – but alas – I do not like those themes like I like my “Simpla” (funny how you have to have something you didn’t know about 30 minutes ago).

From continued reading on the Typekit website, I think I can do this in a sort of manual way. They make sly reference to the idea I have to know HTML and CSS (don’t) – but it looks like just a lot of cutting and pasting to me, so let’s get it on!!! (This is going to get ugly, I know it).


So first things first (hate this saying) – need to figure out how to change the FONT to something nicer to read in WordPress. Might as well make a to do list:

1. Fix this FONT.

2. Post some interesting things.

3. Get a cool graphic for the top right of the page.

4. Possible learn to do this myself in TYPEFACE or in Drupal (the whole blog creation – CSS thing. I guess these might be separate).

5. I think it’s important to just start writing though, like Merlin Mann says. I am finding he is right, where I have wanted to just research everything and do all this myself and start looking for images to make the front page look cool before I even, you know, actually write anything. Because really, the writing is the hard part.

6. I really really hate and don’t understand why people post a comment with FIRST!. I get it, but I mean, that’s like the lowest form of celebrity or acknowledgment ever conceived. I mean, if being standing up behind the guy on the Fan-a-Vision at baseball game and waving is a 2 – then the FIRST! guy is like what negative number…

It’ll get better. We hope.
