Dyslexics have all the fun 

Earlier this week, my good friend and spiritual brother Stefan Engeseth addressed his dyslexia in a blog post. For those who wonder why an author and blogger has typos, here’s the reason.
   I have known for many years about Stefan’s condition. But it has not prevented him from creating great books, with novel and brave thoughts about . Naturally, the books themselves are proofread and presented with perfect English (or ).
   But he sees advantages, which ties in well to my earlier discussion with Ryan Benson about . is not a disability—it is almost an extrability, if I may invent a word. Stefan wrote:

But I find [dyslexia] fun and it helps my spelling it also makes me more creative. When I go to different blogs ore websites I often end up in another place because I spell it wrong. So dyslectic do find more new thinks on the (and have more fun surfing)!

   Consequently, Stefan has been able to incorporate into his work, his books often drawing from these accidents. He even advocated it in his first book, Detective Marketing, where he suggested people get off at the wrong floor in a building, to broaden their experiences. I agree these are great ways of creating , connections, and a where one can never complain of being in a rut!

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
