How Cool is This!!!!
If you're a regular reader of Just Letter Rip , then you might recognize that all the words in the word cloud above are from previous blog posts.
I spent hours choosing the words, deciding which to emphasize, and setting up the layout in Photoshop. Whew, I'm tired.
Wordle did it all for me in about 2 seconds. All I did was type in the URL for my web page, hit Submit. And Whoomp, there it is.
You can also cut and paste text into Wordle or type your own list of words and phrases.
I use this little word generator all the time at school and my students love it. Wordle has been around for a couple of years now, but I'm still amazed that not many people seem to know about it. How can all this coolness be hidden?
Put in the lyrics of your favorite song, or a recipe, or a passage from the Bible, or your favorite quote. See what happens. You can tinker with different fonts, layouts, color combos. It's addictive and you can spend hours there before you know it. You've been warned!
