A blog even 8-year-olds can read

  1. i’ve been thinking about this (since i commented 30 minutes ago…)

    but it’s funny because my mom and your mother-in-law have both made comments about how your blog is “above their head.”

    so reading level maybe elementary…but topicly…you are very intellegent.

    Plus, I think this “readability test” should also be based on whether or not your blog uses pictures.

    Swerve never has any pictures….so I don’t know what elementary level this test is talking about, but without pictures it’s not very fun for kids, even if the writing level is simple 🙂

  2. my apologies, but this is my real-time enjoyment of this rating tool. It works on other sites other than blogs. MSNBC is considered junior high, while CNN and FoxNews are both High School. Surprisingly the New York Times is Junior High also.

    Anyways, with so many comments, I should probably just write my own post…but i’m having so much fun now, so you’re getting all the comments. I will try to make this my last one.

  3. mine is elementary school level too if it makes you feel better. but i seem to remember that being the goal of journalism. we are amazing journalist…we can explain the graduate level stuff at a level anyone can understand. that takes talent.

  4. Ok…so I see you are still feeling the need to justify your readability level. Now that you have declared so publicly that elementary is better…I am going to have to run this test over time to see if you purposefully KEEP it that way or if it sneaks up to the higher echelons of my JUNIOR HIGH level! 🙂 Oh, Ryan…my blog is mostly pictures and I still made junior high. Hmmm.
