How To Create A Blog Post Faster

Last Update: April 16, 2018

There are already many blog posts here in WA as well as outside WA on how to create blog post fast. As WA community, I believe this is important as we depend a lot on content creation for our business.

Unfortunately, this post is not going to share all the tips on how to create blog post fast.

What I am going to share with you today is only one of those factors that could contribute to your content creation with speed.

Typing Speed Improves your blog post creation

Like it or not you need to type to produce your blog post. How fast you can type would somehow contribute to your capability to produce your blog post in the speed you desire.

You are not going to make it if you are still typing with two (2) fingers. You need to use all your fingers or at least 8 of them to get you move forward faster and at the same time avoid frustration of typo errors during the creation of the post.

So how you can improve your typing speed?

Practice Makes Perfect! ✌(-‿-)✌

Yes, practice makes perfect. If you have taken typing course before, you are already in great advantage. But how about if you have not attended any typing course? Or you seldom type before you come to WA?

I never meet Kyle in person but I know he can type perfectly just by looking at how he typed through the video training in the classroom we attended. I can tell that he can type fast and accurate. So I don't surprise when he posted a blog saying he created content of 11k words in that one particular day.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying if you don't have this skill you are not going to succeed in your business. No!. What I am proposing here is that if you have this skill of typing fast, it is definitely a great advantage to you to create your blog post much faster.

Get typing training online

In case you buy these ideas, there are many sites that provide typing training online. It's free and you can take the training at your pace and time frame. I don't think you want to spend long hours on this training - 10 minutes per day is enough to see how your progress.

There are many sites offering typing training online - you can search them on G by typing "typing training online" and should be able to find a few you can check.

I prefer this site called...

Speed Typing Online

Once you think you have improved your typing speed you can visit this site (there are many other similar sites) to test your speed.

Test Your Typing Speed

So, if you find this make sense, go ahead and enroll to one of the typing class online and maybe you can update your progress after say 3 weeks from enrollment date. :)

What is your typing speed currently?

Came out to 69 wpm with 1 error, not the 90 I could do years ago. Taking typing classes in school definitely are a benefit to this line of work!

Good advice Joe.. I learned to type years ago and I remember we had to have stickers on the keys so that we couldn’t see what they were ..it worked quite well actually. However my issue is the same as Beate.. it’s thinking faster I have to combat lol

Your welcome, I find the faster I type, my late mum taught me as best she could, because she was a typist) the more mistakes I make : ) so catch 22

I actually took Kyle's advice and got my computer to type for me. It's not always precise and I do have to watch what it types but it is a lot faster than the two-three finger typing I'm used to...

Rae-1965 Premium
What do you mean? Are you talking about a voice recognition program?

Cheers!
Reply
DBlanchard Premium
Yes Rae. It's part of windows if you use a PC. I assume there must be the same kind of software with MAC.

Once it's trained to recognize your voice, it's quite convenient.

There are also some 3rd party software like Dragon Naturally speaking.which are very efficient.

I guess Dragon Naturally is a paid software, Denis?
Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts.

Hi Joe, Too true. Thank heavens I learned to type at school. That was the only skill I could bring to the table at WA as was terrified of the computer and that I would somehow break it.

That's something you can leverage Jill.
Thanks.

I used to have over 90 words a minute but no doubt nowhere near that now. However, I do type almost every single day so I am getting LOTS of practice :)
Reply
newmarketpro Premium
90wpm is decent.
Why is it slowing down?
Reply
Wealth2018 Premium
lol. I haven't been tested in a long time but that's ok. As long as I can type, that's the main thing!

Very informative post, Joe.
But I have to say, I'm not so concerned about my typing speed. However, should my thinking speed improve one day, I may have to think about my typing speed again.

I'm around 70 wpm which is enough for me. I once learnt typing in a designated course where we needed to type in the dark. Was a good exercise.

I made 44 with 4 errors :(
I think I need more practice :)

Good morning Joe,

What a great post. This online typing course which you speak about looks like it would be great fun.

Although I am working from an Apple I-Pad. Trust me. I can definitely relate to the speed factor issues. I may just have to invest in a regular desktop computer - which I really would like to have.

When I went to high school and beyond I use to have a 80-90 WPM count. I so miss having a real keyboard.

This was a fun read.

Thanks for posting.

Kindly,

Becky

P.S. Tap, tap, tap, and not click, click, click. :)

Thank you. I need to tap tap, tap, not click, click, click

WoW...so if you create a blog post of 1k words that already enough researched, you only need less than 10 minutes...
Any particular tips you can share?

Typing speed is crucial if you want to write a blog faster. I was taught at an early age to gain typing speed by typing my name and my family’s names over and over and then to just type a letter to a friend. Your right, practice is key. Thanks for this.

I believe you can type with decent speed...
I am left handed and my right hand fingers are not as aggressive....:)

Hi Joe, I do pretty good typing. If it’s somethimg coming straight out of my head I can get up to 90wpm but I usually stick around 60-70 range. I can usually feel my mistakes so I don’t make many.
My left pointer finger (I’m right handed) has a problem with the cvb’s and no matter what I do it’s still a struggle.

Hi Jennifer

Try to let the left hand middle finger do the e,d,c run and let the left pointer finger do the r,f,v and t,g,b runs.

Yes, I also (most of the time) know immediately when I've made a typing error.

Wishing you much success!

I am not a typing genius. Mine is not that bad. I learned to type by myself at home and there was no internet access like we have here. Typing should not be a hurdle as we have so many resources available online to learn. I did these a while ago and that is helping me at WA.
A great tip.
Thanks for reminding.

Many thanks for this Joe.
I believe that Kyle said somewhere that he uses dictation for his posts, have you tried that? :)

My typing speed was 34 wpm on my third try!! Average!! :)

I must have missed it.
Will check it out.
Thanks for the info Chrissie.

p/s - You are looking for Amazon plugin that customize to the visitor's country - I have tried Woozone and it does that.

Diction is good but you will have to learn how to talk so that it gets exactly what you’re saying every time. To begin with you have to go back and re read it very carefully until you learn your diction program/utility well. The only bad part to me is that when you begin and you haven’t figured it out exactly, it can be hard to remember what you meant to say. Whereas when you’re typing and you mess up you always see where you were going. If that makes sense.
