Excuse the terrible, terrible, headline, but I’m tired and punchy while writing this post. This is something I found while checking out Heather’s blog: Age 30 – A Year of Books. Basically the site calculates the readability of your blog, determining the requisite level of education for comprehension. I had a great deal of fun sticking everyone’s urls in to see what everyone else’s readability level is. Unfortunately the site doesn’t give any information on how they calculate, average readabilities, or anything else that is fun. Based on the fact that many of the blogs I checked were listed as being ‘Elementary School’ or ‘Junior High’ I’ve come to two conclusions:
- There are some stinkin’ smart grade school kids out there!
- I’m probably a bit pretentious in my writing, as I certainly wouldn’t label as ‘juvenile’ the blogs that came up “Elementary’ or ‘Junior High.’ In fact, those are some of my favorite blogs!
What is YOUR blog’s readability, and what conclusions did you draw from that?
