There are six readability stats for each site, and they are stated in this order: (1) number of sentences per paragraph; (2) number of words per sentence, (3) number of characters per word; (4) number of passive sentences; (5) Flesch reading ease; and (6) the Flesch-Kincaid grade level.*
|Not So Soft||1.6||14||4.7||0%||61.3%||8.1|
*Flesch reading ease: the higher the number, the more readable the text.
Flesch-Kincaid grade level: the US school grade level a reader would need to be to understand the text. Seventh grade means twelve years old, I think.
Methodology: I chose bloggers known for writing large chunks rather than simple links, but - typically - Ian and Meg are currently writing untypically short paragraphs. I deleted stuff like the date and the 'comments' link, etc [and quotes from the London Review Of Books].
This last result makes me realise just how statistics can lie, as Peter's writing contains many brilliant stylistic quirks, such as his ear for local dialect, ignored by automatic analysis.
