Lorem Ipsum is Dead

For most folks, they’ve only seen the phrase ‘Lorem Ipsum’ when using a PowerPoint template for the first time.

Lorem Ipsum is a term to describe dummy text inserted to show what a printed page will look like when real text is there. There are lots of Lorem Ipsum generators out there. Some are ordinary, and some are… entertaining.

Since I’ve been looking at Lorem Ipsum generators today, as a means for those who’ve hand-written their NaNoWriMo novels (50k words, one month!) to get an electronic version for verification on the official NaNoWriMo website, I thought I’d share my favorites.

Dullsville Lorem Ipsum generator

If all you want is some innocuous filler text, this will do the job.

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.”

Boooorrriiiing!

But here’s a website to check out 56 other dummy text generators on Mashable.

Here are some of my favorites. (Not all are G-rated, sorry.)
