Hey everyone, I just wanted to share that I found a way to add a dropcap to only the first letter of a full blog post. Here is the article I referenced: https://blog.hubspot.com/website/css-drop-cap#:~:text=There are two ways you,use the type selector span.

1 - Add a code block for the first paragraph of text for the page. Put a <span> tag around the first letter of the paragraph and give it a unique class. I chose "dropcap". 

<p><span class="dropcap">I</span>first came across the practice of smoke baths when I was doing research in Indonesia. The women were really into smoking themselves as a natural perfume. Indonesians also love clove, and they also love to smoke cigarettes.</p>

Then, in the custom css tab, I added the following styles to the dropcap letter. You may need to adjust accordingly.:

.dropcap {
  float: left;
  line-height: 85%;
  width: .4em;
  font-size: 400%;

If anyone has any questions, comments or ways I can improve this let me know!
