What’s your Wordle look like?

Posted by denglishbi on August 9, 2009

Came across this recently browsing around through some blog postings and I saw a posting on Jeff Jone’s site http://spstring.jeffthink.com/ that said What’s your Wordle?  I was intrigued so I had to check it out and I ran my blog URL through it to see what it came up with.  Here is what I ended up with (after a few randomizations):

Wordle

So what is Wordle?  According to the site it is the following:

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

I thought it was interesting to see what it came up with and it has lots of different options for the layout designs too.  Check it out for yourself and see what your Wordle looks like – http://www.wordle.net/create.
