Your Questions About Blog Theme Ideas

Mark asks…

How can I change the font on my tumblr blog theme?

I’m looking to change the header/title font on my tumblr (the really blocky one), but I have no idea how. I’ve scoured the HTML for a font name to change or something, but I really don’t know how to do it!
My tumblr is http://babyruthlesss.tumblr.com/ and the theme I use is ‘Themocrity’ by http://anthaglio.tumblr.com.
Any help is greatly appreciated, it’s been bugging me for days ;)
Theme is actually by http://anthagio.tumblr.com, the link to his tumblr is on the bottom of my page. :)
I tried that but with no success :( I’ve taken out every mention of arial/helvetica in the HTML and replaced it with times new roman to see the effects, and all it changes is the main text.
So frustrating…!

Find the following in your Dashboard:

body {
background: #000 url(“http://static.tumblr.com/3driglx/i3Jl2tjfs/themocritybodybackground.png”) fixed;
color: #fff;
text-transform: lowercase;
font: normal 11px/14px Helvetica, Arial;
-webkit-text-stroke: 1px transparent;
word-wrap: break-word;
etc…

Change these to the fonts you want to use in order of preference:

font: normal 11px/14px Helvetica, Arial;

Be sure to pick fonts that are on all computers. Since “baby ruthless is a link:

baby ruthless*</a

You may have to find the link styling and change the fonts used.

Michael asks…

What should I do to make my harry potter blog interesting?

I have started a new blog on Harry Potter. I know its a very common theme but I want to make it a success. Please give me some ideas as to make it good, fresh and engaging. I am not very experienced at blogging either, so I seek your support. Please help.

Fun facts and information :)  How about speculating on things we are not told about the characters or Harry Potter’s world in the novels? What happens to various characters between books or after the series ends? You could ask for comments from your readers and get a discussion going.

Remember to write some link-bait posts like “6 Most Annoying Things About Hermione” or “5 Most Interesting Magic Spells in [name of book].” (That would give you several posts right there—one for each book.) There is really a lot of material to work with if you start thinking that way. Good luck!
