Font Magic

I've been redoing my site in my spare time, and I'm kind of stuck on the font I want to use for the sidebar headings. The problem in a nutshell: I love fonts. Love them. Because I am a font whore, I have hundreds on my machine. Some are obviously not going to cut it on a blog. My copious amounts of Hebrew fonts, for example, aren't going to be the right choice for this blog.

My many different fonts present a problem with I'm designing for myself. I can't decide what fonts look like me. I know what I like, but I don't really know what represents me the best. Do I go with a modern look? Something fuddy duddy? Something with high impact? Something conservative? I have no clue. What I do know is that I want something that represents my content as well as my personality.

It's funny. When I design for other people, I don't have any problems deciding what fonts to use. But for me, I'm always stuck. It's taken me hours with the color blender just to decide what colors I want to use. I don't know what my deal is. Anyhow... here are some of the choices.

I've given you a few choices. Which one do you think best matches my blog? These aren't my only choices, not by a longshot. But they will give me an idea of what you think most looks like me. Click to enlarge the .jpg. The name or abbreviation come directly after "recent rants & raves." Just write down the font name in the comments, and maybe tell me why you chose the font you did?

I like Gloucester. I think wackier fonts have their place but here I envision something clean and classic looking.

I really like echelon for you. But even better? Would be a nice typewriter font. I can't even explain why, though. I just think that would suit you. Nothing too rounded or schwanky or complicated.

I think "enviro" and "gloucester" work best with your blog.

But that's just my opinion...

OOH. I'm a font whore also. But alas, I had to change from the visually interesting Papyrus to the much more sedate Georgia because of readability issues.

I like Echelon as well.

Those are my top three. They're all pretty cool, though.
