    I'm only able to see the CSS and no text and can't change the font. Is there a way to change that? Thanks!

    Everything seems to be working fine. Can you clarify what's not working correctly?

    The site is ok. The behind the scenes is giving me trouble. I would like to change the font of the blog titles, and it was suggested that the style sheet should be accessible in a different format to do so. Is that true? Should there be an edit button next to the fonts?

    You can do it the way the article specifies (edit the style.css file of your theme by going to Appearance > Editor), but I would suggest not editing it. Instead, take a look at what rules are in effect for the element that you want to change by using a web debugging tool like Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools, then add your own CSS rules to override the existing rules using JetPack's Custom CSS option (I see you have JetPack installed).

    For example, using Chrome DevTools, I can see that your blog titles are styled using this rule:

    h2, h2 a, h2 a:visited {
    color: rgb(251, 85, 99);
    font-family: 'Alex Brush';
    font-size: 34px;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    The blog titles also have a class of entry-title, so to modify the styling of your blog titles, you can add this rule to JetPack's Custom CSS option:

    h2.entry-title {
    color: rgb(251, 85, 99);
    font-family: 'Tahoma';
    font-size: 30px;
    }

    Change the value for font-family to whatever font you want.
