## Allow Me A Moment of Geekery

So Blog Grader is a website that, as the name suggests, grades your blog. And I scored a 51%.

What does this mean? I have no idea, because I can’t find *anything* on their website that tells me what the score actually means^{1}. What I did find quite interesting was that: (a) there are ** 3,651** inbound links to my blog (which seems like a fair bit to me, as that’s more than 3 links per posting) and (b) my blog is written at a

**grade 12**level. Serioulsy, grade 12?? I didn’t realize that vocabulary such as “hotties” and “big ole” and “mofo” was held in such high esteem.

In related geek news, Wired magazine published a list of “100 Essential Skills for Geeks.” I posses a pathetic 14 of the 100 skills. If only I’d *documented* my plan for what to do in the event of a zombie uprising, I’d have had 15.

^{1}Perhaps if I knew where to look, I’d get a better grade. Assuming that 51% is a bad grade.
