Time to start embiggening my words

There’s a widget going around Blogistan that tests your blog’s readability level. So I plugged my own URL in to see, and here’s what happened:

Not that there’s anything wrong with this, mind you — Lloyd Alexander wrote at an elementary school level a lot of time, and it served him rather well — but I wouldn’t mind having some notion of methodology here.

Anyhow, moving on….

    I can’t believe that’s the outcome for your blog. Mine, which is usually nothing but pure silliness, with my own made-up words, came out as “College Grad”.

    Maybe you should take it again; I think it should be a Ph.D. level![

    Yeah, it makes no sense to me. I have all this physics jargon on mine right now, and mine came out at “high school”…?????

    My friends and I have a blog where we post excerpts from our novels, and it got Elementary School Level as well, despite all of the cuss words and my predilection for very long, complex sentences. LOL about “embiggening”!

    I need to use bigger words. Mine came up Elementary School too. I tried a few of the other blogs in my links. Even Pharyngula is only Jr. High level.

    Hmmm. I have a hard time believing your blog is at Elementary School lever, or that mine is College Level, as the tool says. I’m guessing that the “methodology” involves a Wheel of Fortune. Kinda fun to do though.

    Very weird. Mine came up as “college, post-grad.” wtf? I don’t gets it. I’d post the widget, but I’m not boosting predatory payday lenders…

    Mine came up “post grad” too. I figured it must be some copy & paste quotes that heightened it’s readability. Personally though, I don’t see it.

    Wow. creativebflo 9my blog) got elementary school, but Kevin (buffaloroots) got high school. I think it just reads too fast…
