Awful Cloud




*************

Thank you, Kymberli, for the link to Wordle!

I'm stunned that there are no profanities in this cloud, which leads me to believe there is a filter involved. Hmph.

I was also surprised to see no profanity on mine. Then I realized that Wordle only uses the words that are currently on the first page of your blog. If you put up a new post and do it again, it will give you a different selection of words.

I'm glad that managed to get yours up!

I just made mine. My large words were: chocolate, feeling and mother.

I think I'll try it again later.

I like how it has all your kids and dogs names in it.

mine had the f-bomb, because it was on the front page.

niobe said...

What Kym said. My front page is pretty unrepresentative of my blog as a whole, so one of my largest words was Iowa. Riiiight.

I can't seem to get mine to paste into my blog :(

Kathy said...

Very cool Tash! I tried it too. How did you get yours to be so big in your blog post? Mine keeps showing up small and with a hyperlink to the Wordle site. Any suggestions? Thanks! :)

Kathy and Mrs. Beth: I don't have your emails, so I hope you come back here to check --

The code they gave me on my wordle was really goofy. I copy/pasted, and then had to delete the hard returns, and then it showed up, but was teeny wee (see: Luna's). So: I took a screenshot instead, which on mac is shift-apple-4, and then it goes to desktop as a jpeg, and you can either put it in your blog from there or move it to photobucket or whatever the heck. My big mistake since I'm on autopilot when I load these things is that I put a frame around it, and I should have clicked "none."

Let me know if I can help more, I'm kinda a doofus when it comes to these things and needed some advice from Kymberli and my tech-savvy husband.

Thankyou Tash! I was able to put mine up and it's much MUCH better!! :)

Kathy said...

Yes, thank you Tash! Kymberli had to help me figure it out too and now mine is bigger in my post, that Kim sure is a smart one! :)

this is really, really cool.

Funny how it reflects what's on the first page of your blog now. It would be interesting to do one reflecting various weeks and see how it changes and shifts over time.

I like your cloud, even if without the f-bombs.
Took me a while to figure it out too. I had to google how to do a screenshot, can you imagine?! Duh. You won't find anyone more techno-retard...
