How To Use Your Words

by How To Mommy on 06.13.12

Three separate times in the last week people were talking about Wordles.

I had no clue what they were talking about, until they showed me one.

Have you ever heard of these?

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.

You can customize your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes.

The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

I thought it would be something fun to make as gifts, so I wanted to practice by making one for our room.  What do you think {I used fake names and places in this example}?

I thought it turned out pretty cool!

You can change fonts to something that is more your style and adjust the colors to fit whatever color scheme is in the room your going to hang it.

Once you create it, just print it on any type of paper and find a frame that works well.

What a simple and thoughtful gift!

That is so cool! I have seen those around, but I had no idea how they were made. I will have to check that out!
