Today, I want to talk about fonts. I don’t know much about fonts. I know the default option is probably not the most artistic choice. I am familiar with the word kerning and that it has something to do with letter spacing but I have no idea what it does. I have no formal training in graphic design. I tend to go with my gut. When searching the list of fonts, I use the one that reminds me the most of my favorite flannel shirt. I compliment that font with the choice that reminds me of drinking coffee. Hopefully, it translates on the screen.

I installed a new application on my website. It is supposed to allow me to tweak and fine-tune every aspect of the font. That level of control feels like an awesome power. Unfortunately, it prevented the text from showing up in emails. I can write a post and tweak it all night long but when the email is sent there is no text. You may have noticed on Thursday. All of this power is worthless if I can’t connect with anybody. This is a great metaphor for everything that is wrong with the world. Maybe I should grab a pencil and some envelopes and start sending letters. No one would be able to read my terrible penmanship.
