Helene Blowers in her blog, LibraryBytes has posted a couple of blog analyzers that purport to give some insights into your blog and writing style.

Helene, and now me, provides these analysers with the caveat that the scientific integrity of any of these tools is not known and they are presented here for your amusement only (except where the results are fantastic - see Readability Test below):

1. Typealyzer – provides a Myers-Briggs type analysis of your blog and shows you the area of the brain that your writing style reflects most.


Readers in the Mist : The analysis indicates that the author is of the type: ISTP - The Mechanics ~ The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generelly prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts. The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

Blue Mountains Library Manager : The analysis indicates that the author of http://bmlmanager.blogspot.com/ is of the type: ESTP - The Doers ~ The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities. The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

2. Genderanalyzer – determines what sex you write like.


Readers in the Mist : We think http://readersinthemist.blogspot.com/ is written by a woman (74%).

Blue Mountains Library Manager : We have strong indicators that http://bmlmanager.blogspot.com/ is written by a man (94%).

Rubbish - obviously!

3. Readability Test - Determine what grade level your blog is written at.


Readers in the Mist and Blue Mountains Library Manager : blog readability test

Of course!

4. What is your blog worth - Determines your blog worth based upon Technorati ranking and advertising potential.


Readers in the Mist : $1,129.08 (love the .08!)

Blue Mountains Library Manager : $0.00

I think they mean priceless!
