As long as it works for you, there isnt a problem.
ya, i agree. theres no need to type a certain way just because its right. i mean,. i type using two fingers and i typed this thing in about 10 seconds lol.

I actually use the home row method. Just got use to it over the years taking keyboarding classes. Now I type pretty fast with darn good accuracy.

Once you get the hang of tpying without looking at your keyboard, such as me , you can type really really fast - I can get 70 WPM, easily..

I can get around 70 adjusted words per minute (with the million errors I make) and probably 75-80 real WPM...

I suck... see:

Yeah, and it doesn't work with your grammar like when I accidentaly (are half asleep) and type some random word in that starts with the same letter or something and don't proofread.
