The Psychology Of Fonts (Human Behavior To Fonts)

According to an experiment done by Norbert Schwarz and Hyunjin Sang proof that fonts are actually mattered to boost readability.

To understand this psychology you have to do a small task i.e. read the text in both of the images.

The physocolgy of font- best fonts for blogs

Have you read the text in the images? If yes, then what is difference

I am sure the text written in Arial font is much easier to read at first glance but at the same time, the text written in brush font is actually very difficult to read at the first glace.

This same experiment is done by Norbert Schwarz and Hyunjin Sang on two groups..

What do we conclude for this small task?

As a blogger we should make our content more readable and attractive.

Hence using the best fonts for blogs is very important.

What Is Perfect Size For The Blog Fonts?

Now we know that the best fonts for the blog are actually very important but what should the best font size?

Well, I have seen many sites with a font size of just 11-12 px, which is actually very difficult to read.

So I always prefer you to keep your content font size 15-18 px honestly, I know it little bit bigger but usually people feel easy to read at this size.

Hence, Keep your font size 15-18 px.
