Want to assess your blog, website or twitter posts? The following three websites will help you.
First, test the reading level of your blog or website. Juicy Studio will provide you with some seemingly meaningless numbers such as those displayed below:
|Average words per Sentence||9.76|
|Words with 1 Syllable||3859|
|Words with 2 Syllables||1107|
|Words with 3 Syllables||617|
|Words with 4 or more Syllables||235|
|Percentage of word with three or more syllables||14.64%|
|Average Syllables per Word||1.52|
|Gunning Fog Index||9.76|
|Flesch Reading Ease||68.03|
It explains the numbers below the results. According to the website, this blog is easy to read (Flesch reading ease) if you have about 6-9 years’ worth of education (Gunning Fog Index and Flesch-Kincaid Grade). How.. interesting. There used to be another website which displayed your blog’s reading level in terms of junior high school/university education. That website seems to have gone by the wayside (the link is now dead).
Perhaps you’d rather make a piece of art out of your blog posts? Try Wordle. Here’s the result for diligent room:
It looks rather like a subject cloud but I don’t think it has anything to do with frequency of words in posts. You can change the look and colours according to your preference. Fun….
If you’d rather analyse your ‘tweets’ on Twitter, try the psychological analysis of Tweetpsych. Enter your Twitter username and it will give you a score based on your tweets for things like cognitive processes, occupation and work, positive feelings, as well as “primordial, conceptual and emotional content”. According to my tweets I had high scores for Time, Sensations, Abstract Thought and Temporal References. Useful? Hmm… I guess you have to be a psychologist to appreciate the significance (if any).
I’m sure there are many more such mindless websites with which to pass the time. Do you know of any that you wish to share?
