Reading level of newspapers in U.S.

I was told that most articles in U.S. newspapers are written at the 8th grade reading level. I didn’t believe that until I saw my son’s writing; I knew then that I could never be a writer, neither in English nor in Chinese.
 
What I am trying to say is my English writing is not difficult to understand. So, if you have trouble with a particular sentence I wrote, please let me know so that I can re-write it.  When I write, I usually draft it and then revise it 2-3 times to make it as clear as possible before sending it off.  If you cannot understand my Blog, I would like to try harder because I do want to communicate with you.
