Writing blog post via voice input

This past Saturday Brian and I had to transcribe some copy for a website that we were building. We had to get a copy from a flat image and retype it out. We are talking about 20 pages worth.

Brian had an idea "why don't we just use the voice to text input on the iPhone?”. I thought it was a great idea and we ran with it. Brian read the copy and pasted it in. It must have saved us hours. I thought about it a little more and I was thinking why don't I just try to write some blog post by voice to text. Seth Godin says you should write like you talk. So here I am talking into my iPhone writing this post. I am quite interested to see how this turns out and if I can start producing better quality post and more of them.

Notes

I am sure I will get better at this. The copy above was slightly edited but pretty true to how I spoke it.
