Blog Readability Test

Got tagged by Cam (whom I tagged in the first place so I can't really complain)

Here are the rules:
1. Check out your blog Readability Test here then post it.
2. (OPTIONAL) Stop asking yourself regarding the results of the test (LOL!)
Now since this one's optional, I've decided to ask myself some questions regarding the test and the subsequent results with the hope of providing answers for future test takers. This test purports to determine the requisite level of education necessary to understand one's blog entries. Now while it doesn't really matter what level your blog turns out to be, I imagine you would want to at least get a readability result that approximates the level of your target audience (or a notch below that level to accommodate the mediocre members of that particular subgroup). Otherwise it can be assumed that your target audience will not understand most of your entries or at least only pretend to do so.

Thus it is with great pleasure that I announce the result of my blog's readability.

I find it quite strange that even non-blog websites get ratings (e.g. www.inquirer.net got Genius rating).

@JC: Don't worry, I can do the tag from the other end :p

@tipidmeals: Hehe... your target market are budget eaters anyway, kids don't have the need to worry about budgeting, only us Junior High levels (or thereabouts :p) do hehe

@lester: I find it quite odd that you decided to tried to have all these sites rated
