This is a Wordle tag cloud that gives an overview of the general zeitgeist of Betchablog. It analyses the words used in my blog posts and presents them in various sizes according to their frequency of use – the more often the word occurs, the bigger it appears – giving a nice insight into the main ideas contained in the text. It’s a neat little tool, and I’ve used it to create word clouds for lots of text in the past, but oddly enough, I’d never actually used it to analyse this blog. Overall, I think it’s a pretty good reflection of what gets talked about here (although I think the word “amazing” may be just slightly over-represented thanks to a certain recent blog post that mentioned it once or twice!) I’m not sure exactly just how far back in time it goes… I’m sure it didn’t analyse all the way back to when I started this blog, but either way, I like it!
If you want to try something similar, just point your browser at www.wordle.net and give it the URL for your blog (or any other chunk of text) Thanks to a little bit of Java magic, in mere moments, you too can have a similarly beautiful typographic masterpiece!
Thanks for the suggestion @mrrobbo!
