Readability

Well, this is fun! My blog tests out to a high school reading level. I think this is a good thing. We read blogs in our spare time, and too hard to too much like work. You can check out the reading level of any file on the web, so I checked out a few sermons from the church's website.
Mine run to Jr. High level. I think I should be pleased about this, too, after all, its an oral medium, but it's a bit harder...

At first glance, I wasn't sure how blog readability related to fellowship growth.

Last week, some of us at UUFSD had a discussion about the recent UU World article on UU and the working class. The upshot is that despite our often-stated desire to be welcoming, accepting and open, there's a subtle expectation that only the well-educated need apply.

I put our fellowship site to the test and it showed one of the least-accessible levels: "Genius".

Since we're in search for a minister, it didn't seem to make sense to see the readibility index of our interim minister's sermons.

I suggest anyone interested in growth of their fellowship try out the readibility test on their own site, sermons, and minister's blog.

Could be revealing!
