A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well, this picture is actually 500 words, but they are all words from this blog website. The picture is called a Wordle, and you can create them on their website. I clicked on “Create” and pasted the URL to our blog in the appropriate box, and pressed “Submit.” The website then proceeded to take our blog and create this image. You can change the font, color, number of words used, and take out certain words.
What is fun about it is realizing just how Wordle creates these images. Can you figure it out? They take a word count of the site or text and use the most common words in the picture. Then, they show the quantity of each word by displaying it at an appropriated size.
I love this little fun tool, and it is interesting to be able to see just what you are writing. When you are typing you don’t really think about the actual words you write, you mainly think about the meaning you are trying to convey with those words.

Here are some links to other Wordles I did for each chapter of Alice in Wonderland. I took the text of each chapter and put it into the picture.
And here is the link for the Wordle I created for this post.
