You might want to run your blog through this test. I thought my results were interesting. I score high on readability and low on the "fog" index. You know what I thought was my BEST score? You need only 3.3 years of education to understand my blog.

Yeah, if you want something deep and profound, go elsewhere. Here are my scores:

MS Word grammer check will do just about the same thing, but it does not tell if the stuff you have written is worth reading or not. Your stuff is Rob.
