Head in the clouds


I saw this on Pip's Blog, who saw it on Linzie Hunter's site.

Wordle is an online toy that generates “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. So I thought I'd put the entire text of the last blog post in and see what came up.

Really, it sums up this blog (and me) quite well (except for the word 'power', which was quite prominent. That had me stumped, until I realised I'd said "flower power" twice...that'll do it!!!)

Also, if you squint your eyes, it looks a bit like a guinea pig! Or is that just me?.....

Bec - I was OK until you mentioned guinea pig. It brought back horrible memories of Snowball and Truffles, the Guinea Pig Bullies of the Eighties. They took over our backyard and our lives. I still live in fear of them, even though they have long gone to Piggie Hell.

But I do like your cloud of words and prefer to visualise a sleeping golden retriever.

I made one of these myself and it looks pretty cool. Now I'm thinking about all the different texts I can use to make them.

What a great idea - I'll have to go and have a look too! I love copy and numbers, so this is my 'type' (ha ha) of thing!
Cheers.

That looks like so much fun. I must give it a try.

I can't see the guinea pig though.

Hey, it looks like you have a great new bag in your Etsy shop. I'm off to check it out.

Hey Bec. How did you make your wordle appear so large in your post? I made one but it is really small and hard to see.
