I'm a new blogger, just learning the ropes

  1. Help would be appreciated. Thank you.
    How do I change my font and size when leaving a post? SImple question, huh?
    I really want to customize my blog, any suggestions? Plus, I'm not familiar with the terminology. Is there a dictionary or glossary somewhere?

    Thanks so much!

  2. Welcome to wordpress. Here's a link to a Beginner's Guide that you may find helpful http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=11280

    There is no automatic setting changes for fonts on wordpress.com blogs. If you don't get the css upgrade then here's the link for font changes which have to be made manually on each post/page. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/06/12/can-i-change-my-font-font-size/

    If you have experience with css editing then you may want to purchase the upgrade and deal with the font changes throughout the blog. The upgrade is not recommended to bloggers who have no css experience. There is no staff support for learning css.
