    I often find that when writing my own blog posts, it seems that my posts always hover around the 75 range. My highest was 77.3, though I've only been keeping track since October 12th of this year. How about you?

    I don't pay much attention to that Flesch score, but what my posts score depend on the target audience of the site. For example, on my home page (business) site, my articles have a Flesch Reading Ease Score between 50 and 70. On my personal site, the posts score between 30 and 60, but I write those more for myself than for anyone else to read.

    My biggest problem is with using "passive voice". I can often clear it up, but I'm not 100% certain why so many things are considered to be passive. I clearly say what I mean. I also sometimes lack the transitions at the beginning.
