Run, Blog, Run

I couldn’t resist trying this out. If only I was as erudite as BBC News, then you would all be reading at a Genius level. However, my readers are as smart as those of Fox News Online.

Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the intricate writing and large vocabulary here. However, CNN News Online only has a readability level of Junior High School.

Mama’s Got Moxie where I found this test proclaims that her Elementary readability level really makes her a better writer. As a whole, I think I agree. Simpler is better.

See Blog run. Run Blog run.

Maybe I shouldn’t go that simple;>

  • Kym, I deal regularly with a gentleman whose speaking makes him sound like a legal disclaimer wannabe. My eyes glaze over and my mind goes blank whenever he opens his mouth (or emails me). Less is more.

  • I’m sure that my speaking and writing has far too many caveats, addendums, sidebars, parentheticals, meanderings, uhhhhhh…what was I talking about?

    Oh yeah…my blog’s rating was High School, too. I guess all that college and stuff was lost on me.

  • No Chris, Heather and Mama’s Got Moxie are right! We are better for being simpler. Although, I have to say BBC ain’t hard for a hillbilly like me so what’s with that Genius label!

  • Erudite: Homely, intellectual sister of the Greek Goddess, Aphrodite. She spends weekends creating Latin word games for an obscure corner of BBC news while glamorous sis surfs naked on a halfshell.

  • I truly think the “reading labels” are arbitrary because I did it twice for my site and got “undergraduate” the first time, and “post graduate” the second time. And I never did figure out how to get that picture on my page instead of just the html code. Maybe they should have an “inserting html code into your web page” rating…I’d get “newborn” I’m sure.

  • You may be right. I just did it again and got Junior High Level. Or it may run off post titles and Run, Blog, Run may have thrown me to the simpler side.

  • Well I tried it three times and am still elementary school.

  • Well, I’m solidly stuck in High School…kind of ironic since I was a terrible student then. Guess I’ve got some karmic payback to do for those four years of academic laziness and focusing undue attention on the artful particulars of social life.
