I Owe These Skills to Instant Messenger

I saw a link to a typing test on my friend Carolyn’s blog, and just had to try it out. Recently I’ve had several people comment on the quickness of my typing, and I always give credit to AOL Instant Messenger. I believe my sister and I started using AIM when I was in high school, and I honestly think that is what helped us learn to type so well. Anyhow…all that to say, I tested myself on this nifty site and it says I can type 77 words per minute!

See how well you do…try it! 

Thanks, AOL!
