Wordle hurdle

Kate at Kate5kiwis posted a link to this totally cool "word cloud" generator on her blog today and I swiped it right quick! I have spent the better part of the evening playing with it instead of doing something more productive. Fun times!

Wordle takes the words from your blog, or any other source, and arranges them by size according to how often they are used. I was worried that I would end up with some nasty word that that illustrates poor writing... like "like"... as the biggest word in my cloud but it wasn't as bad as I feared. Go try it out!

Kate, The Princess Bride is one of my all time favorites. I had a lot of fun with my wordle. Thanks for the link.

It's pretty, too. Like, you should frame it. Totally. :)

I am still a little afraid that Wordle will reveal me to be a cronic whiner. Sigh. Yeah, like that. Love that yours and Kate's both feature the kids -- or her "lads" -- prominently.

Gina, when I saw "dogs" I actually looked for "hair" nearby!

Laura/CenterDownHome said...

Um, I meant "chronic", but I guess "crone-ic" works. L

Laura, the fun/cheater thing about wordle is you can remove words you don't like and it will reallocate.

Chronically cronic is a good description of how I'm feeling lately.

Okay, it is totally cool and I want to do it. But I don't understand HOW! How do I get it to do the words from my blog?

Help me! lol

I love Wordle!! I'll go there and just play sometimes...either using the words it pulls up off my blog, or adding my own..."dirty wordle" was pretty fun...but I didn't save that one!! :-D
JennatJugglingLife did one for her son and had if framed and he (maybe Jenn?) hung it on his dorm room wall....vrrrrry nice!!!
