These are the "Wordle"s from my blog page and my Flickr page! Neat eh?! The bigger the font the more the word occurs. If you want to try out this cool toy, go to http://wordle.net/

This would be so cool for a background to an artwork or a journal page. It would be a cool starter tool for a writer or an artist. It would also be a brilliant tool for a school project (must show my highschool son!).

Enjoy!

Postscript: My son did use this for schoolwork! He was studying the Treaty of Waitangi (New Zealand History) and he chose two different articles written about the treaty and the land, one from a Maori point-of-view and one from a European point-of-view. He then did a wordle of each one to see what words had more emphasis in each article and how they differed. Very interesting exercise!
