…and blogstice for all

It’s come to my attention that this site is written at an elementary school level. That’s right. Through the magic of the internet you can plug your url into a web page that will tell you what grade level you’re writing at. It works for MySpaces as well. I’m all about full disclosure, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew this. You can put that dictionary away when reading miabifilms.com. Furthermore, there will be no, I repeat, NO use of coherence, allegory, or logic whatsoever. (I do reserve the right to break this promise at anytime.)

The web page only seems to inspect your most recent post so I assume your “readability level” would vary from post to post. But as of right now, I’m a fourth grader. I would love to say that I have done this on purpose. That I’m writing a populous blog so as many people can enjoy it as possible. But the truth of the matter is… I don’t know how to write any more good.

Now, some of you may remember a post I made about a year ago entitled I Write Like a Girl. Again through the magic of the internet, here: the Gender Genie, it was determined that my writing has a distinct feminine quality. While I don’t necessarily agree with that, it does have its benefits. (For starters… and enders… I write for a women’s TV network) So, using deductive reasoning and a little faith in frivolous websites, it can be said that I write like a 4th grade girl.

I would like to thank my dear friend Ben for pointing all of this out. I love ya guy.

I just ran this puppy through the blog readability test again. We’re up to a Junior High clip. And it doesn’t even detect sarcasm. Woohoo!

Whelp! Since I added that update comment above, miabifilms is back to being for elementary school kids.

    Greg – this is by far my favorite blog post title. Not only did you cleverly reference a fine Metallica album, you coined a wonderful new word. We could all use a little blogstice.

    I guess that website couldn’t rate the synergistic quality of the blog and its highly effervescent aftertaste.
