Keeping up with the Bloggers

Many other blogs have been checking out their readability statistics recently. I decided to jump on the bandwagon and figure out what kind of writer I am . . . and what kind of reader you are.

We are quite simple, you and I. We're basically middle schoolers.

Readability Results for

Total sentences368
Total words3,962
Average words per Sentence10.77
Words with 1 Syllable2,617
Words with 2 Syllables846
Words with 3 Syllables370
Words with 4 or more Syllables129
Percentage of word with three or more syllables12.59%
Average Syllables per Word1.50
Gunning Fog Index9.34
Flesch Reading Ease69.18
Flesch-Kincaid Grade6.29

It's those last few numbers we should be worried about. According to one index, you are reading and I am writing at a ninth grade level. According to another, that's really the sixth grade.

At any rate, we're a little more sophisticated than Reader's Digest, but less than Time Magazine. Which reminds me:

There. I'm officially the last blog in America to post that image. Am I serious or just having fun?
