Wordle

Jenn told me about this cool little website that creates beautiful word clouds for you. You can either type in a bunch of random words or you can use a blog feed to create the art. If you provide a blog feed, it’ll try to use words that appear in the feed frequently and make them larger so that they stand out.

Here’s the results that Wordle generated for me.

  1. We learned about this in teachers college actually. It works really well when you paste in a WHOLE article. You almost instantly get to see the main points of the article…. ALMOST. Haha

    1. I told Wordle to use the content of my recent blog posts and that’s what it came up with. I guess it make sense as a tool to generalize the main ideas of something. Now that you’ve mentioned it, I can see that I do talk about those big words often… but then again, it’s the ten most recent blog posts. Maybe I can try using more than ten.
