In case you wondered about this or any other blog’s readability, this link will tell you the level required to read the entered blog. I tested a few well known and personal interest blogs for fun. [HT Rebecca Writes who is Junior High School]
Beyond the rim – High School
William.Meisheid.com – Elementary School
The Anchoress – Junior High School
Belmont Club – High School
Evangelical Outpost – College Undergraduate
JollyBlogger – High School
LaShawn Barber – High School
Mark D. Roberts – Junior High School
Miss O’Hara – High School
Parableman – College Undergraduate
Random Observations – High School
Reasoned Audacity – High School
Vox Day – College Undergraduate
I am not surprised to see Parableman and Vox Day as college level. They both deal in philosophy and jargon, though in different contexts. I was surprised that Evangelical Outpost was that high. I never thought Rebecca would be so junior, since her hymns and theological postings use a lot of terms not in modern common usage.

*sigh* I need to begin reading bigger books, I suppose… 😉
Why? It is better to write simply and clearly. The classic newspaper goal was to write at a sixth grade level, at the cusp between elementary and junior high school. 😉
My blog ranked as genius which is very discouraging. I’d like to bring it down to the High School level.
