Fun with Wordle

The other day, I was playing around with Wordle, a program that scans a website and then produces an image that displays the most common words on the site. Words that appear more often are larger on the screen. Here's the image Wordle spat out for this blog:

Hmmm.

I can't say I'm surprised. And here's the Wordle for Steve's videoblogging account:
And the blogs my family members write:



And a sample of my friends:





The best part is that they are all immediately identifiable.

Hmmm...Glen, check. Failed mommy, check. Someone who's been to Belgium recently to see Avril Lavigne, check. And yet, no ranting Serious Midnight. I fear I have fallen off the friends list. Or, my wordle was not instantly identifiable. I'm not sure which is more upsetting...

Ooor... tell me how I can do my own!

Talk about a really cool header to a blog.....

Jackie's Wordle

It will change over time as you add new content to your blog, so you can go to wordle.net to change it. I did mine a few days ago and "Hasselhoff" was the largest word. It's still there today, but in much smaller text.

Karen: Sorry, I didn't Wordle you. This wasn't intended to be a complete list of my friends: I was only trying to include a representative sample. However, I just did yours and it BEGS to be added. I will upload it immediately.

In breaking news, my new site is being messed with RIGHT NOW. How exciting!

Hey, mine is rather obvious: it's the only one with the word "breastfeeding" in it.

I love it. I'm going to load a wordle onto my page!

That's pretty cool, but what the heck is "yellowknife"??

Megan said...

That would be Name of Town Withheld. :)

Karen said...

Excellent! I love my wordle. I wonder if I can make it high res enough to print off really big, llke word art. Things to think about....thank you!

I like how there's a big fat "dude" for Nate's Wordle.

And Sarah's is very characteristic.

What fun!

THIS could be your new header. Those silly mountains and coffee stains in the latest rendition and that gun toting sheila (that was me)have gotta go. I LOVE this. Do it in black with blue letters or black and white if you want the serious journalist rant look. THIS is so off the grid for bloggers headers and yet SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO your blog.

Wait... which one was mine again? *grins*
