Tool Tuesday: Lorem Ipsum Generator

If you’re familiar with free templates, or have been working in the printing industry you would have come across this text often:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing 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.

Lorem Ipsum or Lipsum, as it is more popularly known as, is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. The text can crossed over from the print world and has landed into the electronic world and is now used by several designers for layout purposes.

The purpose of Lipsum is to distract the reader from the text and focus on the layout. It also helps to fill the layout with content instead of generating your content from scratch.

There are several lipsum generators available, but the most popular of this is the one at Lipsum.org

The generator uses over 200 Latin words to generate content. It can generate paragraphs, words, bytes or lists of content to save you from doing the manual labor.

And if you do use the generator often, do consider a donation to the Webmaster.
