Headings of blogs post or article play a major role in the survival of a website or a web blog. The first thing most web visitors read on web page is the heading. And if you write good heading and apply elegant fonts to your content headings most of yours visitors are likely to read your piece of content.
In the past web designers faced a whole lot of challenges when choosing an appropriate font for their content headings. They made to choose from the limited number of font family web browsers provided and some of these same default fonts don’t display on some Operating Systems.
This issue made designers seek the help of graphic designing software to create elegant fonts as images and then apply them to their contents. This same solution generated other problem. The images increased the size of their websites and resulted in making their website to load slowly and also reduce their ranking in search engines.
The default Times New Roman font family looks very good in prints but somehow awkward on web pages. Fonts like Verdana, Helvetica, Sans-Serif, Arial can be a preferred choice for a heading but as designer you should make your web pages and contents stand out. Using fonts like the hand writing style can really make your contents look gorgeous and great to your visitor. A lot people become attracted to things when those items look great.
