How to Incorporate an Effective Color Scheme into Your Blog: Part Two

This post was originally published on my old blog on 5/3/14.

Now that you’ve decided on the different colors for your blog based on Part 1 of this series, it’s time to change the color of the typography on your blog. This guide is mainly for Weebly users so the instructions will be for the Weebly platform.

Changing the Typography Colors

When you open the Weebly Editor, you should see five different tabs at the top. Select the Design tab. When you’re in that tab, select the “Change Fonts” option.
When you choose that, you’ll see a bunch of buttons for all the different types of text that you can change. Refer to the color layout that you made before and select one type of lettering to edit for now. When you select that you will see a screen like this:
You can fiddle around with size, style, etc. but I’m just going to explain how to change the color. When you open the drop-down menu, you’ll see the image below. You can choose one of the colors that are already available, but in order to get the perfect color based on your color scheme, you will have to hit the arrow circled in the picture below.
Now it will bring you to a screen like the one pictured below. Delete the hexadecimal before the hashtag (yes, I am calling that a hastag) and type in the hexadecimal of your planned color.
So there you have it! Stay tuned for one more part to this series.
By the way, I got a fish tank for my blog. Have you fed the fish yet?
