Whew!

Have you guys heard about Wordle? (Thanks, Kayla, for mentioning it so I could spend my evening tinkering with it instead of, you know, writing a paper).

You plug in your URL and it generates a cloud of the words you use most frequently on your blog with the size of the word being equivalent to how much you use it. I was a bit worried that "SHOES" would be huge and "books" and "reading" and such would be leetle tiny specks, invisible to the human eye. Imagine my relief when instead it looked like this:


Quite the cool little party trick, yes? And I'm ridiculously thrilled that "Meh" is on there.

Also, this is clearly giving precedence to newer posts because I certainly do not talk about Creme Brulee as much as this chart would have you think. I wish I did, though.

  3. Ya, I wish it took into account the whole history of your blog, but alas. It seems to just take the most recent entries. Which is why GRASSHOPPER and flail are really prominently displayed on mine.

  7. That is so cool . . .and I'm really mad at my work computer for not letting me do one for my own blog. I'm really curious as to which words will be the largest.
