    I was thrilled to see Comic sans fighting back … I very often wish I could use it on certain
    blogs where I want to convey a friendly tone!

    A few years ago it wasn’t unusual to run into blogs using Comic sans and when I had my
    giftbasket website: Alki Giftbaskets I told the webmaster I wanted Comic sans
    “because it was a friendly font”.

    What would happen if I did start posting encouraging and supportive messages on my
    health and fitness blog? Does Google care?
