Chamber Readability

November 18, 2007

cash advance

I’m not sure what formula the site was using, but this isn’t too far from where someone would want to be when trying to reach a fairly broad audience.  The NY Times’ website, for example, gets the same rating.  For more info on readability, just google “readability”.


  1. I got the same result for my blog.
    This however, I found funny:

    http://www.littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog – COLLEGE (postgrad)

    http://lgfwatch.blogspot.com/ – GENIUS

  2. I’ve seen different results show up for other sites. One day it’s college and the next it’s high school. So, unless we know what readability criteria the thing is using it’s kinda worthless IMO.

  3. What else do you expect from a pile of buggy algorithms? 🙂

  4. LOL….agreed with Sphinx. I got High School level, but then I did delete all of my older posts when I realized what the hell I was doing. I guess bashing bigots gets a lower rating than being one, eh? This site is a breath of fresh air to me. I’m thinking that programming genius Charles Johnson came up with this one.

    Well, I’m off to see who my “celebrity crush” is on MySpace, or whatever that one was.

  5. It’s been theorized that the algorithm is simply based on sentence length. My blog got postgrad, & I’m the King of Run-On Sentences. Atlas Shrugs got genius when I submitted it. That’s gotta be wrong!!

  6. P. S.: I’ve heard that TIME is written for a person w/ ninth grade reading ability, as are most major metropolitan newspapers. So, yeah.

  7. Blogs 4 Brownback got High School Level, although I think that’s mostly due to the commenters.

    Blogs 4 Conservatives got the same rating you did. I guess I have to get out my thesaurus. It must be Sisyphus’ scientific acumen that B4C is sadly lacking.

    And if M. Buffont is correct, I find it absurd that B4C is not getting rated genius or super genius, because I do often tend to write really long sentences, as is my wont, since I often have a rather long thought or important point to make which I don’t want to interrupt with a period, since that particular item of punctuation seems to be a mark of finality and being the kind of person that I am, I really can’t seem to complete a coherent thought without going on at length and writing really long sentences that would make someone trying to diagram them go crazy and run out of room on the blackboard, whiteboard or piece of paper that they’re using to diagram said sentence; too bad for them.

    Oh well.
