the art of wordle-ing

Whilst doing a bit of blog hopping this afternoon I came across this blog - rooftops-rapture ,which referred to wordle-ing (anything with a fab name like that is worth investigating!).  Just look what it does :)


You can put your own words into the program at http://www.wordle.net/, or pick a website, or your blog, and it will pick the words out for you.  The larger the word, the higher its frequency in the text!  How cool would this be as a journal page :)

Let me know if you have a go, it looks a bit addictive to me, but then I love text and lettering!

Isn't this fun? I tripped onto this site about a year ago and had lots of fun creating different word combinations. Cheers!

That site is great Sarah! I've made one too, using the first two lines of a Rutter carol (feeling Christmassy...)

I will get myself over there, but like you, I may find it a bit addicting!

Great find!

Dear Sarah

occasionally I landed on your blog and didn't want to go without writing you a word. I very like the artwork you do and am sure to take a look again from time to time.

By the way, right now I have a Christmas Candy to give away, if you like try your luck; http://creawitch.blogspot.com/2009/11/weihnachts-candy.html

Love from Karina
