Happy NFD

I kind of got thrown into the world of blogging and websiting against my will, which quickly became a "sink or swim" situation. I immediatly started to sink.

Confession #7:  Generally speaking .... I am easily overwhelmed.

With help from my kids, I got my website going on WIX.  With patience on their part and work on mine I got more comfortable with designing it.

At the beginning of day two I found myself in serious need of more font choices on WIX.

Confession #8:  I am addicted to fonts.

Hi my name is Jeanne and I am a fontaholic.  All together now..... Hi Jeanne.

While some people go fishing for fun, I go "fonting".  Yes, I made up a name for it.

I've been known to "font" for long periods of time, too many hours for me to admit to.

So I did some research, and found that I was just one fish (sticking with the fishing parallel) in a sea of font seekers in reguards to WIX.

The challenge was before me. The game was on. The gauntlet had been thrown down.

In order to satisfy my addiction I had to figure out a way to be able to use my own personal fonts in WIX.

And.... after several grueling hours.....I did it.

It takes a bit more time and some creative powerpoint manipulation, but it can be done.

Mr. Spear was impressed.

I officially declare this "National Font Day".

Bye for now.


p.s. happy "fonting"



Lesson I learned today:

Don't leave a pot boiling on the stove when you're fonting.
