Is your blog smarter than a 5th grader?

That's the question being asked by this site: http://www.giftrocket.com/q/test-your-blogs-reading-level

It's just a bit of fun really but the idea is that they'll work out what reading level your blog is at.

My blog at http://www.aluxurytravelblog.com came out as a '12th grader', and our UK travel blog at http://www.ukseries.com/blog came out as 'college'.

With the latter...

Hmmmm!

Bah!

I was reasonably pleased that the home page of my foodie blog's score was 11th grade.
"You write like you just aced your AP literature class. Your writing is up there with USA Today and other national publications. You're showing signs of promise to be a professional blogger! "

Well, it's not so bad as most of my recent postings have been a bit slap dash as I've been so busy. I can do a lot better than those recent ones.

Then I tried the URL of a restaurant review I wrote for someone else. I put a lot of time and effort into that one so I expected a good score. Result - 5th grade. "Your writing is simple and to the point. No one is impressed by your words, but everyone gets your message. Have you considered writing children's books?"

What a cheek! Shocked

Well, bully for you Dr Paul.

I thought that some of my stuff wasn't bad. Am I not better than a 5th grader? Actually, I've no idea what that means because I'm British.

Haha, my amateur night blog is at grade 10. Let me just find out if the local papers are hiring.
