Font Slut

I have a confession: I am a font slut. I love fonts. I have a hard time not downloading a ton of fonts when I go to a font site. I want to download everything I see for the most part. I don’t want the really sloppy fonts that look like someone just scribbled in the worst handwriting ever, but I want pretty scripts and bold graffiti or a mix of the two.

Normally I will go to fontyukle or dafont for them. I got an email the other day about Google Fonts. I didn’t even know they HAD a font database! I’m sure you can imagine just how excited I was when I started going through the site.  (If you can’t, just think of like the 2nd or 3rd thing that you’ve always wanted to happen come true.)

I started downloading fonts at work and had to force myself off the website because they don’t pay me to download fonts. I zipped and emailed myself the fonts I downloaded so I could add them on my laptop here at home. I haven’t been back yet but I plan to definitely go through the database and download everything that catches my eye. Here’s a link so you can do the same: Google Fonts. Have fun!
