NO one feels especially smart and/or clever on Monday mornings. Well, no one who’s currently in the process of writing this post, anyway. So one of us was only mildly alarmed when we perused an excellent blog* one of us really enjoys reading, and were linked to A “JUICY” SITE that provides a way to actually measure a few interesting things related to content, including, but not limited to, the overall level of intelligence contained within any given blog. We’re not sure if this means anything, but we thought it would be fun to “do the math” on the Snark Park, nonetheless. Here’s what we learned:
Thus far we’ve managed to crank out a total of
2465 2686 words.**
8.96 8.89 words per sentence.
Of those words:
16901824 have 1 syllable 521571 have 2 178202 have 3
7689 have 4 or more!
That last one really impressed us, because we didn’t even know we knew 4 syllable words! Ultimately, we average
1.45 1.46 syllables per word. Hey, we may be chatty, but we use the big guns sparingly.
Furthermore, we garnered a score in something called a “Flesch Reading Ease” of
75.21 74.09, (ideal is around 60-70) and a “Flesch-Kincaid Grade” of 5 5.13, which means, basically, we’re writing at a 5th Grade level. That’s right. Fifth Grade. You’d think we’d be embarrassed, but you would be wrong grossly underestimating our response to the situation.
Now it’s your turn to find out where your blogs fit into all of this and/or tell us what you scored. Go on… just type your URL HERE, and see what you come up with. Oh, and while you’re over there? Would you mind reading up on these “tests”? And then, could we prevail upon you to come back and explain to the rest of us what the hell they mean? Because we really are fascinated, just not enough to actually find out for ourselves. Oh, and for godssake, when you do tell us about it, be sure to use
small words as many monosyllabic descriptive terms as you’re qualified to incorporate into your explanation. Otherwise… you’ll lose us there’s a distinct possiblity we won’t be capable of processing the information properly.
*many thanks to MOM-101, from whom we totally ripped off this idea. Someone should go over there and try to get her to come over here… for she is an amazing blogger, and a lot of fun to read. We’d try, but she already knows what we look like, and we’re afraid she might slam her imposing blog-door in our face
earnestly plan to update throughout the day to see if we can in a passionately fervent desire to enhance our scores aggregate tallies.
