If you’re a homeschool parent looking for quality, user-friendly typing lessons for kids, you’ve got to check out Typesy!
I took typing class in high school. Way back in the dark ages. On an actual typewriter, y’all. I’m talking Stone Age. I didn’t care for the teacher too much. She was kind of grumpy and was always harping on us not to look at the keys when we typed.
Okay, okay. I know you’re not supposed to look at the keys, but it was so hard not to. I guess that’s why I only got up to 30-35 wpm while my best friend, who didn’t look at the keys, won an award for fastest typing skills. She typed 60+ wpm. Show off.
Fast forward a decade or three and guess what I do for a living? I’m a blogger and a writer.
That means I’m on the keyboard every day. And, guess what. I’m still a painfully slow, moderately accurate typist. Although my skills have improved since high school, typing more quickly and accurately would help me accomplish more each day.
