Demoted

A while back, when I checked my blog's reading level, I was rated as "post-college." I didn't rank as "genius," but I was happy nonetheless. Maybe I was feeling a bit prideful, too. Today I came back to reality. When I checked this morning, my blog had plummeted to "high school." Ouch. I'm not sure of the scientific nature (or lack thereof) of this scale, but it has knocked me down a few notches on the pride-o-meter. That's probably a good thing.

Eric,

I wouldn't take it so bad. It probably means that your writing is becoming more accessible and understandable to a wider audience. Which is a good thing.

I myself am working on not making my sentences too long, and using vocabulary that nobody (or at least not a whole lot of people) understands.

David,

Thanks for making me feel better (ha ha).

You do make a good point. We probably should be aiming at about a high school level in order for more people to want to read what we have posted.

Actually, I'm surprised. I think most high schoolers today can only read text-messagese.
