Wordle

Where I found this, I don't know (it was on someone's blog today). It's called Wordle, and it's a free online tool to use to play with words. Here's what Wordle says about itself:
"Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text."

Of course, you can just make a list, and increase the frequency of words you want to appear larger. Then you can edit colors and more. Here is what I did:



And then this is what I created by plugging in the text from my most recent wordy post, "Sacred Sunday: Desperate for Joy":





What fun with words! To see what can be done, see other examples in the gallery or create your own...
