Tell me all the wordles that I wanna hear

And that’s what I like . . . That’s what I like about you . . .

I’ve seen this before but most recently on Jerry Jones’ blog, Shadowhouse Creations. Wordle is a toy that creates word paintings from text it either finds on your blog or that you provide directly. There are several different color and layout variations and it kept me amused for a while.

You can save your creations in the gallery at Wordle which is what I did here. Then I did a screen capture of the page and created a jpeg from it using Photoshop.

Wordle takes the words you use more often and makes them stand out. From this wordle, it appears that I say the word ‘just’ quite a bit. Maybe I need to work on that.

Play with it here.

Lots of chores Saturday morning with a grocery run to Amish country to stock up on supplies. Until later, my friends . . .

I looked at that but didn't try it. So you think the more you use a word the bigger is shows up in the mosaic?

Betty said...

That was fun!!!!! I tried to save it but it didn't work yet. I will figure it out.

You're stocking up! You all getting the next round of snow storms? We have one coming in Monday night and then Wednesday night. Possibly a 2 week winter break. And I'm not sure I like that! Off to wordle!

What a cool idea! My kids told me today that I can't bold and enlarge random words on my blog anymore, they said it's annoying lol! So maybe I'll just do one of these pictures every so often.

Thanks so much for the info on doing the screen capture for my giveaway. I hope you have a good weekend and get all of your errands done so that you have a little time to relax too!

So if these are words off your blog, what I need to know is...where are the "George" and "hubby" words?

;-)

Sorry I missed seeing you last weekend...hope you had a grand time. Maybe one day we'll catch up. Home to Australia it is for me this weekend!

beth said...

just what I need....something else to eat up all my time that should be spent on closet cleaning and organizing....

Julie Harward said...

That is very cool...fun! Are you getting more snow? We are, I'm staying planted here all weekend! Come say hi :D

JackDaddy said...

I've seen something similar, but this is the first time I've seen it for blogs! Thanks!

Amy said...

Hey Kate! I've been out of the loop awhile now but I'm back and it was great to read your blog as usual, at first I thought you spelled words wrong- but then I got it...really was going to wonder if you couldnt spell words! Oh I want to go to the Amish country and go shopping too!!!!! Have fun!!!

Karen said...

this is fun, never heard of it!..and how I wish I could go for a grocery run in Amish country.. just once! Actually, I love one of their old wagons for my front yard, I want to place buckets of flowers in it, pumpkins in fall, etc....

If you ever come across an old one, I mean rickity, while you're in that area..that's for sale? Let me know!

I love these, and have created both a t-shirt and a sweatshirt of a Word Cloud from my blog at SnapShirts.

They allow you to alter or omit words you don't want in your creation.

Can't wait to try this! Thank you for the info...I may have to share with my readers as well!

Mary said...

That's fun! And I think it is so sweet that "husband" is one of the bigger words in your wordle...

Have fun in Amish country. You're gonna take pictures, right?
xoxo

Kathy said...

What fun! I discovered you can delete a word if you want by right-clicking on it.

My Farmhouse Kitchen said...

just jill said...

Daryl said...

I just love Wordles .. they are just so fun

LizB said...

Okay, not sure what it means, but my biggest word for my blog was "Just" also.... lol. Thanks for sharing!

Oz Girl said...

Very cool! I'll check it out later today. Fershur. :)

BUSH BABE said...

That's what I like about you! (this song is now stuck in my head).

I did this once with twitter and a tweet cloud - I talked way too much about Robbie Williams. Embarrassing!

haha Apparently I say the word "chocolate" a lot on my blog. I wouldn't have thought that I said it that much, but it was pretty huge in all those other words. lol

The Japanese Redneck said...

I've played with this a little bit. I didn't have time to type in all the words I wanted to use.....

I adore this Wordle Site. Thanks for the link. It's unique and fresh. When I entered my blog, I was trepidatious to say the least. I can get kinda political. But the excitement and anxiety ended when I saw my wordle cloud. I love it. It's Me. It's all about Me and I love it.

Thanks again.

Now I'm gonna share it with the rest of the bloggers.
