Blogging about what you're learning is certainly a handy metric for measuring what (and to what degree) you have learned certain subjects, but I'm not sure blogging daily before bed is the best method of doing so.

If it's like testing one refreshes the other you should test them at the same time, but grade them separately. This is perhaps not so easy in practise.

Have a look at the keyboard, learn where are some character group like nm, fgh + jkl(with 'i' being really close to j), az(alpha-omega), yuio(vowels).

It is possible, and the best option would be to spend hours and hours, playing typing tutorials and typing games. You could search for "touch typing tutor" etc. As you play games and start competing with your own records or with online people, places of the keys will burn into your brain. 10 days is a lot of time, and it can be done.
