Serif font for blogging

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a good/beautiful serif font to use in my personal blog www.natts.me. As big header, I used Proxima Nova Condensed black and subheading is Adobe Caslon - which is quite nice in my opinion. But I am still not sure about the body font. Right now, I am using PT Serif. Should I use Adobe Caslon as well? I am afraid that it would be difficult to read.

Thanks for your help.

It would help knowing what is your budget, or which typefaces you already have access to.

That said, I see that the blog uses Typekit/Adobe Fonts. Since Adobe Caslon’s thin strokes could look a bit too thin for comfortable screen reading at text sizes, if it’s included in your plan, for the body copy you could use a cut of Caslon optimised for it, like Williams Caslon Text.

Thank you for your help - I'm going to try that out. For now I am using Adobe Typekit and I would also stay there. I was thinking about using Georgia, but it's a non-profit personal blog and using Adobe Typekit with my Wordpress Theme is not complicated as using Georgia. I also found a font "Calluna". Doesn't look that bad.

Hello guys, I want to thank you for your help. I've decided to use Myriad Pro of Typekit first, with the reason that somehow a sans serif font looks more friendlier to "me" and I don't want my blog to be like a newspaper and such. It seems that serif fonts and I haven't become good friends until today.

However, I got in love with TT Commons of Typetype and I am planning to buy them for my website soon or later. Yes, it's expensive for a personal use, but I love them. For now I am happy about how my website is and I'm going to focus on the content (finally).

Thank you again!
