Curses on thee, typeracer!

Oh, my.

Like I needed another addictive website.

But this is so fun.

Check out typeracer, a website where you can hone your typing skills by racing against random opponents. You can even set up races with your friends. By doing progressively better, you can watch your words per minute number go higher. Of course, if you stay up way too late doing race after race after race, your brain probably isn't at its best, and that number will go down. Not that I'd do that or anything.

I can't tell you why this crazy site is so addictive. You'll just have to try it yourself.

And when you feel guilty because you and your kids haven't bathed in weeks, at least you know you were bettering yourself by improving your typing ability.

Thanks to BzzAgent for turning me on to typeracer, and thanks to Sasha for turning me on to BzzAgent.

By the way, Sasha has a giveaway on her blog right now. Check it out.

Be sure to come back here tomorrow to find out who won the lip gloss.

Just spent time on this. Max was 86 words per minute, with 98.3% accuracy. I did three races. REALLY fun and addictive! Thanks for the link!

Sasha said...

Isn't BzzAgent cool? I found typeracer last week and loved it. Reminded me of learning to type on Mastertype!

Shame on you! You should have kept quiet about this site. Now my kids aren't going to get bathed either! The world is going to be full of dirty kids now.
