A test

I have to admit, I love to type. It is one my most favorite things to do. In fact, sometimes when I'm not typing, my fingers spell out the words that I am saying. Is that weird? No, don't answer that because I think I already know the answer.



90 words




Emily at Chatting at the Sky had it on her post yesterday and so now I am hooked. You don't really want to know how many times I've taken the test....


Take the test and see how you do....let me know!

I haven't taken the test yet, but I can already tell you - I and
S L O W!!! I took a class in college and I think my best was 40 wph. How embarrasing! I need to practice so I don't have to keep looking at the keyboard. I'll take the test and see if I have improved!

I hate it when I make mistakes so I have to correct myself. I meant to say I am slow, not I and slow. And I don't know why there's that big space on the second line. O.K., I feel better now and can go on with my day. Have a good one!

Angie said...

O.K. Don't think I am a crazy girl, but I looked again at my first comment and I spelled embarrassing wrong. Can you tell I am a former teacher?

I took this test back in March and scored 85 wpm. I thought I was fast but you are super fast!!

Hey! I'm checking out new cameras and always love your pictures. What kind of camera do you have?

I took the test and it was so tempting to keep trying. My score was 60 with no errors, so I am not near as fast as you.

Blissful Nikki said...

In my best whiney voice...I only did 61 words per minute. I discovered that site couple weeks ago on somebodies blog and it took a good hour of my time away from me! It is a little addicting. I get nervous for some reason rofl. Sarah thank-you sooo much for your sweet comments...made my week. cherry

Katie said...

I took this a few months ago... I did it like thrity times, I'm sure! It's so addictive! haha! I do the same thing sometimes with typing stuff out when I'm not even at a keyboard. So weird! hehe

Christy said...

I sat and did this I don't know how many times. My score didn't improve much with each try. I stopped because I was getting stressed and not having fun. I type too S-L-O-W!

I even got Jessica hooked on it:) She did pretty well!

Nikki said...

OMG. I love typing test, but I will have to do this later when I'm not on the laptop. I have to get my position just right, ya know?

When I substitute at the high school in the word processing room, the kids are always so impressed with my typing skills. They are like 8th graders just getting into the swing of things. It's funny.

Carolina Mama said...

Too fun! I did it a while back and it seems my highest (after many 'tests' ;) was 85. So you win! :)

Love, the wicker chair! The black turned out well. We have a white wicker chair on our porch. I considered the black b/c it is so pretty. However, the white goes better with our white and red brick.

Nicole said...

Wow, you did good. Mine was liek 67 words per minute with two mistakes. I love your wicker chair. Isn't black spray paint the best. How did I live without it for so long?

Carolyn (sea mystery) said...

Sarah,
I typed 75 words per minute. Not bad for a 55 year old spinster lady. :) Thanks for sharing that with me. I'm sure I'll go back many more times to try it out. xxoo

Davene said...

I just took it and did 100. I must have been inspired by the friendly competition with you because that's the best I've done. :) I saw it a while back on somebody else's blog and had to try it a "few" times then.

I do the same thing you do with typing even when I'm not typing, you know. Sometimes even lying in bed at night, I'm imagining typing words. Sometimes even when listening to someone talk, I'm imagining typing their words. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has this particular strange characteristic. ;)

I think I'm a fast typist, but I'm only 84 words/min. You BEAT me!!
