Well whadya know !

blog readability test

My blog readability score apparently is "High School". Of course being of high school standard I have given this a lot of thought, and Carolyn at laughing alone in the dark is scoring lower (and there is no way I could be considered anywhere near as philosphical or intellectual). it is just that she has been blogging far longer than I. It's gotta be that as more blog entries are scanned the average "readability" gets lowered. (Come on - high school - do you remember what you were reading in high school !!)
Hence I am a recent blogger, so I have a smarter set of blog readers - no comment! :) It's obvious that you just haven't noticed yet - so maybe I should stop while I am ahead? Nah - I don't think so.
I know, I know I have GOT to get a life!

I'm beginning to think this whole readability think is a crock of sh!t. After adding all of those "big words" to my blog, my score actually went down. I wonder if it somehow measures not just the big words, but also sentence length and other things that might imply complexity. I tend to write many one or two word sentences (for emphasis, of course), which may bring my score down.

And here's the pathetic part - the fact that I've actually taken the time to analyse this. I'm the one who needs to get a life!

Oh. And please stop spreading rumours about my blog being philosophical or intellectual. I pride myself on the number of times I use the word "crap" in a post! ;-)

Wowah, I think I'd struggle to make the reception class, well done you for making it to High School.

milla, carolyn, debs - I really think it is a load of crap - it is just the law of averages - more "verbosity" makes your average fall. Anyway who cares - we will still all read each other - right?
