Word Cloud

image

 Wordle is a site where you can construct word clouds.  The one here simply linked to this blog and automatically generated a word cloud from much of the text found here.  You can make your own word cloud like this one of a few of the words that bug me.

  • Once the word cloud is created, select Open in Window.
  • Make a screen shot of your cloud (Ctrl + Print Screen).
  • If you’re using Windows Live Writer, paste your screen shot into the post you’re working on.
  • Select the cloud and crop using the option in the Advanced tab.
  • Do not use a border.

I leave these instructions for myself because I will forget in no time.  These remedial steps are in no way meant to insult any savvy technos that are rolling their eyes in wonder and disgust.

Some of the greens are too pale to see all of the words. Whatever.

It looked good when I selected the colors. Guess some were washed out in the translation.

You get the idea though.

It would be a good way for a writer to cure herself of habitual verbal tics. I'm afraid to try it.
