Ted Demopoulos “officially” #1 Dullest Person on the Internet!

Google, source of all wisdom online, has recently granted Ted Demopoulos the ‘honour’ of #1 status as ‘dull person.’ Yes, a Google of “dull person”, returns Ted’s blog as the #1 hit.

Maybe there is a market for dull? Maybe Ted’s next book should be “Dullness for Business” or “What No One Ever Tells You About Why Dullness Rocks”?

Or what about a coaching program to make the ‘dull’ duller, and the ‘interesting’ less so? After all, if the mind-numbingly boring Edward de Bono can have a best-seller with ‘How to be more interesting’ why can’t Ted (who I find faaaaar more interesting) find equal success with ‘How to be more dull’?

For those who don’t know, Ted is the author of “What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting” and co-author of “Blogging for Business.” Both mighty fine books, both worth having in your library. And now Ted has released an excellent little booklet, “Secrets of Successful Blogging”, a copy of which I keep firmly in front of me as I blog. In the booklet there are over 101 tips on how to blog more efficiently, effectively and profitably.

A brilliant little booklet that you can carry around with you in your jacket pocket or handbag, pull out and dip into to garner great ideas and insights during those dull, between-flights or between-meeting moments.

For example, this from Ted:

“Don’t try and make your writing perfect — writing never is. An occasionally typo {grin – nice one, Ted!} or other error may make it through and is not a problem. Conversely, too many errors look unprofessional.”

Nip over to Ted’s site and nab yourself a copy (hint: if you are quick and clever, you can grab a freebie copy) — you won’t regret it, trust me. And tell him, “Lee sent me”.

    Thanks Lee.

    I honestly can’t remember if I made that typo on purpose. Then again, my head is filled with such exciting things as the history of double ledger accounting, the complete set of sunrise/sunset tables for Durham New Hampshire, and what I’ve had for breakfast each morning the last few decades that I sometimes forget less stimulating details.

    Ted – of COURSE you made that tpyo on purpose! (even if unconsciously) in order to prove that you can make typos and get away with it {grin}
