Are you smarter than a (fill in the blank)?

blog readability test

Oh, dear. I suppose I should dumb it down to increase my readership. Oh, no, readership: a three syllable word! Must. Stop. Doing. Crosswords. And watching Jeopardy...oh, that was a sentence fragment. Would you prefer a run-on?

Well I don't know that insinuating that your readers need the content "dumb downed" is the solution.
Do you suppose?

I think the problem might be that I have so few readers because I use too many big words and run-on sentences.

Hey, I love your blog. It's nice to read one that makes sense : ) Well, mostly. I have a hard time getting through the ones that use abbreviations (ooo, 5 syllables) and texting code. My mind can only spell words one way....the correct way : ) And it makes sense. I say don't change!

Hmmmm, mine claims to be 'college, undergrad', but with all my crappy run-on sentences, and not even full sentences, over-use of ellipses, and sentences that start with 'anyway...', I have to admit, I'm really surprised. I would have thought third grade maybe....

See what I'm talking about? ;-)
