Treat Your Lawn Better



This is just some dummy place holder text and is only intended to show what this page would look like with text on it.  I've found that in order to satisfy everybody and avoid constantly explaining myself, I should not use traditional dummy text as a place holder!

In the past, I've used the traditional "Lorem Ipsum" text on pages. Typesetters have used the Latin "Lorem Ipsum" since the 1500's to hold the place of missing content. Today, printers and web professionals still use it when the clients' actual text is not available so that we can show what a page would look like with text on it. I, on the other hand, grew tired of explaining to clients what it is for and that I do not have "strange Spanish words on their pages".

Since clients rarely have the words for their pages in the beginning, however, I still needed some sort of dummy text. Next, I changed to the "Far Far Away" dummy text which starts out "Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts." The confusion continued even though my clients could actually read the words. They couldn't seem to grasp that the text was just there for demonstration purposes and that I had not made a mistake on their website!

From there I tried the more entertaining "Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe."  You guessed it...I still needed to explain. I finally gave up and decided on my own explanation dummy text! Problem solved!

Incidentally, this cleverly crafted text is precisely 350 words which does represent the ideal amount of text a web page should have for both search engines and human readers.
