Wordle

Just a fun post today.  I just discovered Wordle.  Do you know about this site?  You can enter the URL for your blog or website and it makes a really neat bit of art using the frequently used words from that site.  I plugged in the URL for Riding and got this:  (Couldn't figure how to make image on this page bigger, but if you click on it, it takes you to the large image, and then you're at the site, so you can try with your own URL.)  Once you type in your URL and get a design, try the randomize button, and then adjust fonts and colors, and...well, it's fun!  If you have a color printer, you could print up a neat design for your office.


Wordle: Riding With The Top Down

This looks like fun. I'll do this with the kids...soon as I get a new color ink cartridge.

Speaking of which, I think I need a new printer. Elizabeth just got one that doesn't require her to take out a loan to replace cartridges. My Dell inkjet is about 4 years old.

Oh...I loved the first installment of the Ken Burns National Park series on Sunday. Anyone else see it?

Interesting!

I've seen Wordle but never applied it to a blog before.

This is a new one for me, Michele. I'll check it out!

How fun, Michele!

Tried my website, though, and it says I don't have some kind of a feed. Do you know what that's all about?

No, Kathy, I didn't see Ken Burns' show. Good, huh?

I just bought an Epson workforce 600. It's fast, but uses a LOT of ink. Miss the old one that I gave to my daughter.

Helen, I tried my website too and it said the same thing. I wonder if it works best with 'wordy' sites like blogs?

This was great fun. Glad I didn't see it yesterday or I might not have gotten any work done. I already spent enough time playing with jigsaw puzzles from another blog.
