Like, Really (words used on this blog)

I used Wordle to create a word cloud of the most-frequently used words on this blog. It's an amazing tool, and it makes me rethink the language I'm using in my posts. I mean, like, really.

  1. Wordle is pretty popular. I love the look of your word cloud. If you get a chance, stop by my blog and enter my one year anniversary blog contest.

  2. Hi Jen - Did you know that weight watchers has an on-the-go program that you can use on your phone off line? It's a software application that saves your information and uplinks it when you do connect straight into your database on their website. It also has databases of point values accessible completely off line! I think it was the reason I stayed with weight watchers as long as I did! You do still need the online subscription to use it, but with a monthly pass (around here anyway) its included.

  4. Hi, I have never ever heard of wordle but on your recommendation I just tried it and loved the image it generated, but how oh how oh how do you change it to an image that can be imbedded in a blog post such as yours????? How did you do it?
    Thanks for the tip off, it is great.
    Cheers, Liska x

  5. I worked out how to do it (finally scrolled down and saw that they do provide the html to be inserted on blogs)...... but even though I followed the instructions, it comes out over to the left, with a white blob to the right of it - DOH

  6. This was interesting! I did this for my blog, and my most common words were "just" and "like." "Surgery" was also pretty big, which is funny cause I just started talking about it on my blog!

  7. Liska, I just took a screenshot (print screen) and then pasted it into an image editor where I could cut out the parts I didn't want.

    Anne, I'm not sure how far back it analyzes -- it might just be the last few entries.

  8. Neat graphic and interesting blog. I saw your link on another site and clicked over. I wanted to tell you good job and keep with it! I lost 150 pounds twelve years ago and it's the best thing I ever did. Thanks for sharing your journey.
