I've got your Wordle right here, pal

I've got your Wordle right here, pal

 

Just read Kristal Kraft's post about AR camp in Denver. Spent an hour exploring the cool concepts and links provided in her post. One of them was Wordle.

 

Now, I confess to being a closet self-Googler....and today I added Wordling to my addictions.  So many words....such pretty colors! Check out my Wordle!



My Wordle!

If you would like to add self-Wordling to your self-Googling habit, check out http://wordle.net. You can cut/paste one of your blog posts onto the screen and Wordle that, or you can type in a website that has RSS or Atom feed.

I'd go into more detail but honestly I have no idea what I'm talking about. All I can say is CHECK IT OUT!!

Tres COOLIO!

I also "worlded" myself - but I couldn't figure out how to post it like you just did.

Colleen,

I checked out Wordle,too (from Kristle Kraft's Blog), but WHAT DO YOU DO WITH IT after you've created it?  Besides looking coolio, where would I use it ?

Hi Margaret - It took me quite a bit of time to figure out how to post it!  At the bottom of your wordle you can save it to your public file or something (click button on bottom right). Then a bit of HTML code comes up so you can post your wordle to your blog, but it comes out really small.

 

So.

 

When you make your wordle, at the bottom left there is a button to open up your wordle on a full screen. Click there.

Then you need to screen shot that image, save it as a png or jpg, and then you can post it on your blog.

 

Or something.

 

Good luck! :)

Hi Jeana - Have fun messing with it! You can change font, layout, color scheme, etc.....gave me lots of fun stuff to do as I procrastinate packing up our house yet again for a move on April 2.  :)

Hi Kathy - No clue. I only got as far as exploring the coolio aspects. I'm sure we can do SOMETHING with it but I'll have to save that exploration for another day.  I searced "wordle" on active rain and a bunch of posts popped up but I haven't gone thru them. It took me all afternoon to figure out how to post a decent pic of it on my AR blog.  If you figure it out (or if anyone else in AR Land figures it out) could you let us know?  Thanks!  Have a great day! :)

Coleen, oh boy, something else fun to do! I am still sickly here, so any source of entertainment is highly appreciated.

Years ago I found a fun website called the Dialectizer. I love to translate things into "Swedish Chef". Like this:

Culeee, ooh buy, sumetheeng ilse-a foon tu du! I em steell seeckly here-a, su uny suoorce-a ooff interteeenment is heeghly eppreceeeted. Bork bork bork!

Or Redneck:

Coleen, oh fella, sumpin else fun t'do! Fry mah hide! ah's still sickly hyar, so enny source of intertainment is highly appreesheeated, cuss it all t' tarnation.

Or Elmer Fudd talk:

Coween, oh boy, something ewse fun to do! I am stiww sickwy hewe, so any souwce of entewtainment is highwy appweciated.

Off to check your fun!

That is SUPER neat and very eye catching! It will look really good on a blog header and I've needed to replace mine. Hmmmm . . .

Hey Ms. Banana - Good for you keeping busy, girl! Share your wordle with us when you've got it done.

Carla - It IS fun!  And thanks for the reminder to add the link to my post....I'm in the middle of packing again so my brain isn't working at full strength these days.  I just added it, as .NET!  Enjoy wordling....it's lots of fun!  :)


Hi Carra! - It is SUCH a cool tool!  Enjoy!  I have to tell you, every time I see your booted cow I smile. :)

 

Hi Margaret - I hear you on the whole fiddling around thing. Hopefully the tips I gave above save you a little time. Have fun!
