Have you heard of Wordle? I’ve used it a few times, and it’s really fun to play with. You enter in a bunch of words, choose your font, colors, etc., then submit, and it creates a “word cloud”. For example:
I just found out about Tagxedo. It is similar to Wordle, but, seems to be a bit more versatile. You get to choose your options before you create the “word cloud”, rather than after, as Wordle allows. They also offer shapes into which the words will go. Fun stuff! So, I tried it out, and this is what I (it) created:
I haven’t played with it enough to find out if you are allowed to add your own words. The above image was made by entering the URL to my blog, and it took words from there. I was allowed to edit it, to delete words I did not want added. And, I did have the option, after the “word cloud” was created to make changes to the font, the shape, the colors, etc. Did I mention this is fun stuff? 🙂 Give them a try!
The Internet is an exciting, and amazing, place, isn’t it?
