Making the first letter large

So, this is how I made the first letter always be large (without having to do something special every single time.)

  1. Click on Customize (or get to the Layout section of your blog)
  2. Click on the “Edit HTML” link
  3. In the mess of HTML code (actually, CSS code), search for “.post p”. (or just .post)
  4. Find an open space and copy the text below into it
.post p:first-letter {
font-family:Garamond, Georgia, serif;

I’m not sure what all fonts you can use in font-family. If you use a special font and it works on your computer, it may not work on everyone’s computer.

Have fun with it!

  1. Hi, I am Tammy Bateman’s cousin, and happened upon your blog through hers while blurking. (blog lurking) So, I tried to do this to my blog, but nothing is showing up any different. What to do…

  2. Just want to say what a great blog you got here!
    I've been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work!

    Thumbs up, and keep it going!
