How To Change Font Colour for WordPress.com Blog Posts

I decided a while ago, when I wrote a book review blog post and wanted to hide some spoilers by turning my text white, that I needed to learn the html code to change the font colour of my blog post as you can’t do it otherwise.

Go to a new blog post and click the HTML tab and paste in the following.

<span style=”color:#FF0000;”>texttexttext</span>

texttexttext

Whatever you type in the text section will be coloured.  You could therefore colour the whole post or just one word:

This post is really <span style=”color:#FF0000;”>AWESOME</span> thanks for reading!

This post is really AWESOME thanks for reading!

There are lots of colour codes to pick from but here are a few of the basic colours:

Black- #000000
Navy- #000080
Turquoise-#43C6DB
Apple Green- #4CC417
Yellow- #FFFF00
Red- #FF0000
Pink- #FAAFBE
Purple- #8E35FF
White- #FFFFFF
Orange- #FFA500

So you could do different colours for each word.
Although it takes about a year to write a sentence! The code is below:

<span style=”color: #ff0000;”>So </span><span style=”color: #000000;”>you </span><span style=”color: #43c6db;”>could </span><span style=”color: #faafbe;”>do </span><span style=”color: #000080;”>different </span><span style=”color: #4cc417;”>colours </span><span style=”color: #ffff00;”>for </span><span style=”color: #8e35ff;”>each </span><span style=”color: #ffa500;”>word.</span>

Hope that made sense!
