Pretty insightful post. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a good deal of my time looking for someone to explain this subject clearly and you’re the only one that ever did that. Keep it up.

I’m definitely going to bookmark your blog, I just love your post, thanks for such a nice sharing..Hope to get some info on your blog in future.

I liked a few of the fonts but Legion Slab is my favorite. Thanks for sharing and letting us download for free. You are right a lot of time is wasted searching for fresh and new fonts. Not to mention often money.

Really nice collection of free fonts.

Due to this article I have found a few useful font specialized websites that I had no idea that they existed.

I am really glad I got this post in my email.

Thanks.

Thanks for pointing these out. Some of the fonts are indeed quite nice.
Did I miss the link(s)? I have looked and I cannot find a link to either the font(s) or another website from which they might be downloaded.
If the purpose of this article was to make your users want some of the fonts, it did so. If the purpose was to provide a resource where they could be found, it failed.

I kept trying and SOME (but not all) pictures opened to the download site. With the previous post, I had only clicked on a couple of the pictures.
Thanks. I apologize for my previous error.
