Wordlin' / by Michelle Cowan

Since I feel all a'jumble lately, I thought I'd tell you about www.wordle.net, a great site that creates word clouds based on text you cut and paste or a specific web page that you specify. The more times a word is used, the larger it appears in the cloud. Wordle also allows you to customize the colors, look, and orientation of the word cloud.

Seriously, as someone who loves collages and words, it can be a real time consumer for me. It's fun to see different things I or others have written broken down this way. Key themes (or overused expressions) pop out immediately.

Anyway, here's the Wordle created from the text of all of my blog entries for this year (since January 1, 2009).

Perty, ain't it? Have fun making your own!
