I am trying out blogging from my phone in bed. This will probably be a lot of random thoughts. So far, it’s not the beat.
I am using an iPhone 11, it has a good-sized screen, but in my case, two-handed tap typing isn’t that easy. Then lying down, I have to hold it up above me, and that is problematic.
After changing positions, it’s a little better. It does seem to take much more time to type on the phone than with a keyboard. This is mostly because I can use nine fingers almost all at once. No, I’m not missing one. Your thumb uses the same key on a keyboard.
I also use the Grammarly keyboard with premium checking to make sure I am spelling words and fixing other problems I make. I also do a full check of each paragraph before moving on.
Recently I have been putting more details into comments I leave online, and most of them are using my phone. So I feel I am getting better at having more thought out sentences that don’t get jumbled because you have to think about every location of every letter used. On a keyboard, I have muscle memory for each letter, and keyboard skills helped improve my spelling.
So can you blog on the phone, yes. Is it more difficult, yes. Will I do it again, only if I have to because I don’t have a keyboard or want to share something quickly on the go.
PS: At the end, when I read through this post, I had a Deja Vu moment, like what I was talking about was part of something bigger I will be part of. It could be something from an old dream too, but it’s something about keyboard skills and selling that triggered a memory.
