Leveling up December 18, 2010

Posted by mareserinitatis in Uncategorized.

Jen over at Blag Hag posted about Google reading levels. The gist of it is that, if you go to the advanced option on the google search page, you can indicate results by reading levels.

Initially I searched for “FCIWYPSC” and got a reasonable result: 19% basic, 57% intermediate and 23% advanced. After looking at the results, I realized that this meant that the results listed some articles in my blog, but most of them were links to the blog. I realized I should have been searching for my own site: that is, “site:cherishthescientist.net”.

This resulted in:

Cool! Congratulations to my readers. Obviously, if you’ve stuck with me this long, you must have at least an intermediate to advanced reading level.

Hmm… SonlightBlog.com: 95% basic, 5% intermediate.

On the one hand, that’s good. The writing coach I read regularly recommends making sure that writing is easy to read if you want a bunch of people to read it.

On the other hand, I feel a little lame being so completely “basic” in my writing style. [smile] Reminds me that my delusions of grandeur and brilliance were not in keeping with my abilities.

Congratulations on your score. I’m trying to keep my jealousy in check [smile].

I think we cater to different crowds, so I don’t know that jealousy is in order.

My older postings under the blogspot.com domain was:
intermediate 90%
advanced 10%

My newer postings under the flyingflux.com domain is:
intermediate 95%
advanced 5%

I guess I’m dumbing things down. 😉

You’ve been talking politics a lot lately.
