    Hi there! How do I change the font sizes on:

    1. the blog posts
    2. pages

    The blog post font size in particular is really small, so much so that I’m afraid people will be turned off by the potential for eye strain. Here’s the site: http://www.bluevolcanomedia.com. The blog is here: http://www.bluevolcanomedia.com/blog/. I think the page font is the same size as the blog font, but I can’t be sure.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Cheers,
    Marjorie

    Whew that is tiny! It looks like you can set the font size on line 18 of the CSS if you want all the body content to increase. For the “p” tags only in the content add a font size to #content .post p on line 984 of style.css

    That worked! Thanks so much!

    One more question, if you don’t mind. I hate that the lines are so bunched up together. How can I add a line space or two between all of the content so that it’s not so tightly spaced?

    Just change the line height:

    body {
    background: #002838 url(images/bg.png) repeat-x;
    color: #444444;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Verdana;
    margin: 0 auto 0;
    padding: 0;
    line-height: 20px;
    }
