Blogger's default html font size for posts is a bit small. To increase the size of the body of your posts, the most intuitive way for many is to change the text size in the tool bar when writing a post. This comes with many inconveniences. A better approach is to add a CSS rule.

Inconveniences with tool bar edit:

  • Blogger adds a span tag around everything in order to change font size. This is messy and error-prone
  • You will need to do it for every post

Better approach to add CSS rule:

Go to Settings > Customize > Advanced > Add CSS and add the following:

  font-size: large;

You can of course further customize it however you want
