Wordle



I found this Wordle gadget through McKoala's blog. It makes a word cloud of any text you input, or of a web page. The image above is of this blog, if you click on it you can see it at the original size.

It's useful for seeing which words you use most. Do I really write "will" and "just" so often? Oh dear.

Funnily enough, yesterday I was looking at this:

I think it's clever in that it uses the tag cloud to tell a story (or at least, I try to find the story through the words and their emphasis)

Fired from the Bar

I was being lazy. Here's the wordle as a proper link.

That's a good one Sylvia.

Oh, and I like your picture!

Oh yes, I love that thing. I could procrastinate a long time-but I could figure out how to copy it onto my blog.

By the way, just is a word I use way too often too. Ugh.

Mapelba: I didn't copy it into the blog, I had to use the link it provided. It is fun, isn't it?

Maybe it'll help me to pare down my writing to exclude all those unnecessary words.

Sooooooooooooo Cool! I'm going to play with that later after the baby goes down for his nap and I am looking for some brain candy.

Hi Sophie! Hope you had fun with it.
