Word Nerd on the Prowl

I shamelessly lifted this from my blog friend Rachel, and am utterly addicted. I am frantically thinking of ways to use this…


Wordle is a tool for generating word clouds (much like the word cloud in the left-hand column of this page that lists my categories). A word cloud gives greater prominence to words that appear more frequently, and Wordle lets you play with fonts and colors and layouts.

I tried it out. The first one was created from my About page, the second one was created from Tom's bio, and the last one is the chorus to my favorite George Strait song. I am in love.

If you go to the site and make your own, please please send it to me – I want to see them! (The site uses Java and can't directly make a jpg, so you have to do a screen capture.) I may have to start a Wordle Gallery! sarah.martin.hood@gmail.com

  1. This is TOO cool! I tried to create a wordle, but obviously I am technically challenged. :(

  2. Ooo- pretty! That top one seems like something you should frame and put on display. I like it a lot!
