Sometimes I Even Amaze Myself

There is a site that rates the reading level of blogs. (Of course, this is absolutely meaningless and yet important enough for me to mention since I got a fairly high reading level.) I have no idea what criteria they use to determine that, but here is what they say for mine.

blog readability test

Yeah, it's a little disappointing. Back when I first started I was at genius level. But, hey, this doesn't really mean anything, right?

I suppose I should thesaurus and dictionary reference and increase more bigger words to make my level go upper.

You probably don't need to be a genius to understand what I just expectorated.

So I guess using my more colloquial writing style is kinda junior high. Just sayin'. So much for all that time in grad school.

I forgot all about that one! I did submit my site some time ago (and again now) and it said it was 54% sure it was written by a woman. But they were wrong. I checked.
