Another New Page

 

So here’s a new blog post! Mostly to get rid of the standard filler content that WordPress likes to throw in placeholders. Placeholder content usually consists of one of two things.

Instructional text as if to say;

Wow! Look at this great (name of thing or element here). You can TOTALLY use this space to do AMAZING things that would be impossible to do any better in any other way! Because we said so!

People who make WordPress themes do this…a lot. Even though more than half the “innovations” of new WordPress themes or updates are pretty much just derivative of what someone else has already done but repackaged to look original. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining or trying to belittle the work that these developers do (because I couldn’t do it myself), it’s just the phone marketing nonsense that gets to me.

Lorem Ipsum test text. Lorem Ipsum text is pretty amazing on the face of it. In the print world from what I’ve read, it’s been around since the 1500’s for typesetters and at a glance actually looks like readable text. Until you try to read it then it comes across as the gobbledegook it is. Example:

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. 

At first glance it almost looks like Latin until you ask someone who actually knows Latin to translate it and they laugh at you. It’s OK though, don’t get mad. Because they took the time the time to learn Latin and therefore don’t get out much. Give them this one.
