    What are some of your favorite fonts? Especially ones to use on websites that are cute but readable. I am playing around with some fonts on my blog and can't find one that I love!! Thanks!!

    My signature font is Tahoma. I use it on most of my documents.

    I like Comic Sans. It gets a lot of hate which I can understand if you're a graphic designer or typographist. But I find it perfectly suitable in an elementary setting.

    Comic Sans. J/K. Really I am fine with it for the classroom. If it is personal, I typically choose others only because comic sans I use constantly.

    The font we have to teach handwriting in or Century Gothic because the /a/ is how we write it and Arial. They seem clean and neat to me.

    Yes, you want something readable, that ALSO shows #s well too. Some show cute letters, but the #s aren't readable. I used to use Comic Sans, on discussion posts, but nowadays, I like bold Century Gothic. It's very clear, but you may want something more cutesy.

    Papyrus may be OK, but make it bold & larger than usual.

    I have an incredible collection of fonts—love, love, love fonts. Even as a more "artsy" person, I see nothing wrong with Comic Sans...just another font one can choose to take or leave.

    Have you ever visited the website, dafonts.com? They have oodles and oodles of fonts.

    Personally, I like Ariel. Clean, plain, and easy to read.

    I like Tahoma and Verdana. But those wouldn't be that exciting for a blog... I used to work with a teacher who had a fantastic program that she purchased for fonts... I forget what it was called :-( Sorry!

    I'm a Tahoma person ... sometimes making it italics.

    I use it for so much of my stuff that my coworkers know something of mine even if my name is not on it.
