Touch Typing: Another benefit of blogging.

October 9, 2008

I realized in the past few months that I’m a touch typist. I took typing in high school so many years ago and “cheated” my way through looking at the keys. I was pretty quick as I knew where everything was, but had no confidence. I type for hours every day now and at some point the switch flipped.

My friend Robert used to say back at BigCharts, if this web thing didn’t work out, he could get a job as a secretary. He could type like the wind. I type like a stiff breeze now. So maybe some data-entry wouldn’t be out of the question if things got extreme.

New Site:

August 23, 2008

Gave birth to a new site/blog today. It’s a site that I’ve been considering doing for well over a year. The glassyeyes site gets a lot of traffic and a small, but growing, percentage of the viewers have asked about my thoughts on contact lens retailers.

I only wear contacts for sports, but I needed some with the cold months coming — hockey anyone?

So the research began, the grid started to come to life and so did the site. I took a clean WordPress template and started beating on it to bend it to my will.

It’s called Take a look.

Glassyeyes got BoingBoing’d yesterday afternoon!

So funny how this keeps bubling up.

I wonder if this is how the buggy-whip blogger felt like right before the automobile became what the automobile became.
