Blog Readability Test

As a writer willing to consider an objective evaluation of your skills, could you benefit from a computerized assessment of your command of the English language? Go here to find out what an internet widget says is the level of education required to understand your blog.

I'll wait.

Cue theme from Jeopardy.

Well? What it did it say? High School? Junior High? College?

According to that widget, no cap and gown are necessary to read my hallowed words but you had better at least be in college. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. In screenwriting, we want to keep things simple but that doesn't mean to dumb down for anyone. Of course, I don't know how reliable these things actually are either. This widget says my blog is rated PG-13.

You need parental guidance if you're under the age of 13 to come to my blog? Well, maybe that's because they need somebody who has been to college to read it to them!

Stupid widgets. Oh wait. I said "stupid". Can I use the S-word without getting rated R?

Cool site! Your site has a lot of potential! I can help you add a few things to it. Here is just a couple of things that I know how to do:
-Add Paypal (so you can accept credit cards through your blogger)
-Remove the bar at the top of your site
-Add an image next to the URL
instead of having the "B".
-Add links to your posts
-Help you start working with affiliates so you can make CASH!
-Have www.fencingwiththefor.com for a URL
-Much more

Take a look at my site so you can see what I am talking about.

Not sure what it means, but mine was only rated for Jr. High!

Guess I be stupid or something.

Joel, you and I can both wear dunce caps in the presence of Annabel! We tip out caps to you, Annabel.

Ha! Elementary school here. Aim low! Hmm...maybe because of the word 'boobs'? Hee...boobies.

Well, at least I'm DOWN with the kiddies! :)
