Wordle me this, wordle me that

Today, I'm obsessed with Wordle.

" 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."

You can change the font, colors, and layout. You can enter a website address, or specific text. The images created by the Wordle application are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license, meaning you can use them on business cards, t shirts, websites, or even make money on them.

This is what my and some friends blogs like like as wordles. I didn't edit them. You can click to enlarge, and go create your own as well.

Mine (http://stephbrownthinks.blogspot.com/) :

Beth (http://bethmcdermott.blogspot.com/): Melinda (http://aimlessnotions.blogspot.com/) :

Lucinda (http://lucicarter.blogspot.com/) :


Jill (http://jillianpaisano.blogspot.com/) :So thats pretty fun! I guess you can see the tone of your blog, plus they are Pretty with a capital "P."

Hopefully now mine will sop having so much to do with construction. It says that it gives greater prominence to the words that appear more frequently...

So my list goes like this:

1. Room
2. Bathroom
3. House
4. Jerad (hey, at least he made the list right?)

but that makes since because like I have been saying, construction has CONSUMED our lives this year and I only started this blog in January.

**

Beth is "New" followed by "Like." I can't figure that one out at all.

**

Melinda's #1 by far (that word is HUGE) is Larry who is her hubby. So you might think "aweeee how sweet." Then you go read her blog, Ha!

**

Lucinda was "looking" and "gazebo" which makes sense because her blog is all about planning her wedding.

**

Jill was "pictures" "pairs" "Carter" and "two." Her blog is about her son Carter and twin girls so that one also makes sense.

**

Now I'm going to have to start seeing how much Beth says "like" and apparently she is either always getting or wanting "new" things. Hmm

I am SO glad you found that website! I just think those little "wordles" are the funniest thing. And it freakin' cracks me up how big Larry's name out, and in kinda creepier font than the rest of the words. Oh man, this made my morning.
