Wordle- 'Beautiful Word Clouds"
Now I know that I'm not the first person to sing the praises of Wordle, but a site purely made for making "beautiful word clouds" is, in my mind, genius.
Wordle is a toy where you can create word clouds from a piece of text that you copy onto the site. It gives more prominence to words that are used frequently in the text. You can make your own masterpiece by selecting different layouts, fonts, colors, and word formations. It's pretty awesome.
I created a word cloud from my blog, and while I wouldn't necessarily call it a beautiful word cloud, it's interesting to see which words are most prominent. I had no idea I was so happy!
Check it out and create your own.
