Is it possible to change the font size? The posts seem to use bbcode but the size and style commands don't seem to work.

I ask as many of the viewers of my output use phones to read the posts and the size is tiny and expanding the screen with the fingers mean shuffling left ot right to read the lines...

For your blog? You can change the font size in there by editing the CSS of the template. Each template was set up by a different designer, back when, so uses a completely different CSS setup, but the following instructions work for the Watercolour template which you use on "The Devall Travel Blog".

Go to your blog management area
Click on the "Template" tab
Click on "Customise this template". That'll give you a large text area.
Scroll down roughly one screen in there, to the "BODY" section. In there, you will see a line:

font: 12px "Lucida Grande",Helvetica,sans-serif;

Change that 12px to something larger. 16px is a pretty common size these days, given increasing screen resolutions, and still works well with the Watercolour template, so it'd become:

font: 16px "Lucida Grande",Helvetica,sans-serif;

Then click on the blue "Update Custom Template" button to save.
You can immediately see the results live on your blog.
