Colemak Layout - Beginning

I write a lot. On average I write a few kilobytes of text per day. This has been adding up and is taking a huge toll on my hands, especially considering the Covid situation. Something needs to change. I've been working on learning a new keyboard layout: Colemak.

This post will be shorter than most of my posts because I'm writing it with Colemak enabled on my iPad. Writing this is painfully slow at the moment. My sentences are short and choppy because those are easier to type.

I also have a ZSA Moonlander on the way, it should be here in October or November. I will also be sure to write about that once I get it in the mail.

So far, I have about 30 words per minute on the homerow, but once I go off the homerow the speed tanks to less than about five.

However, I am making progress!

Be well all, don't stress your hands out.
