Who is Dumb Little Man?

It is not often these days that I find a site that has extremely useful information for me. I have been reading this site for a couple months now and I am constantly amazed at all the useful tips.

Some of their recent topics:
  • 40+ Tips to Improve your Grammar and Punctuation
  • 20 tips that got me an IT promotion
  • 250 Free Microsoft Office Templates
  • 50 Tools that can Improve your Writing Skills
  • 50+ Ways a Manager can get Employees to Quit
  • A Lawyer's Advice: How to deal with Cops

I am here now to share this with the world. Below is a little bit about them, in their own words:

"Who is Dumb Little Man?
So what is Dumb Little Man, who is behind it and where the hell did that name come from?My name is Jay White and I own Dumb Little Man. Perhaps the better phrase is that I own the content because yes, this is a Blogger blog that has been very heavily tweaked. I have 2 co-anchors on my little site, Frank and Mark. We are all based in Chicago.I will be completely honest when I say that the name Dumb Little Man was picked for absolutely no reason. In fact, the site basically sat unused for 6 months after I first chose the name. Then in March of 2006 we began posting.......decided Dumb Little Man and it's content would focus on all of our skills; however, we don't get ridiculously deep on any single topic.

Think about it, how could I post about ways of depreciating assets and then 5 minutes later have Mark give a tutorial on php? It couldn't happen.So here we are with a lot of varying knowledge and a weird sounding name. ....To set your expectation, on average we post 10-20 items per week.All three of us hope you'll stick around, enjoy the content and learn something. If you think we are hitting a topic to hard, let's us know. If you want to see something else, recommend it. While we do enjoy Dumb Little Man, it makes our efforts worthwhile if you do too. Thanks.Jay, Frank, Mark"
