CrunchGear posts at an elementary school reading level


Using the Blog Readability Test tool shows that the articles contained herein are accessible to people with at least an elementary school reading level. Go ahead and plug in your own blog and some of the sites you read on a regular basis. It’s strangely addictive.

I was hard-pressed to find another site that was written at the same level as ours. Most of the ones I plugged in were at least at the junior high level, many were high school level, and a few were "genius" level.

While some might be quick to conclude that our low level reading requirements could possibly be the result of shoddy journalistic workmanship, we’d prefer to think of our little corner of the web as a place that’s warm and welcoming to even the littlest readers around. Actually, the thought of an elementary school-aged child reading anything here is horrifying.
