Blog Fog

BLOG FOG….Speaking of readability scores (as I was in passing in the previous post), I was curious to see how readable this blog is. So I copied out all the posts on the front page and fed them into this site.

Results are on the right. The Flesch-Kincaid test indicates that the blog is written at about an 8th-9th grade level, while the Fog index indicates that it’s written at about the same level as the Wall Street Journal. Isn’t that fun?
