Geocities Is Closing!

Important Update for those who changed their blog fonts and used Geocities! I just found (a little over a week after I wrote my tutorial, what timing, huh? :p) that Geocities is closing and will be terminating all of their accounts later this year.

2. Save the sifr.css, sifr.js, blogger-sifr.js and any SWF files that are currently in your Geocities account and upload them to your Webs.com account

3. Upload a new file, index.htm to your Webs.com account (right click and chose Save As to download the file)

4. Go to the Edit HTML section of your Blogger Dashboard and find the previous Geocities code you pasted. Delete all that and replace it with this:
