Groovalicious Word Cloud Visualizes Essence of 400 Blog Posts

Botgirl Blog Wordle

I've displayed Word Clouds here before, depicting changes in the blog's direction over time and differences between avatar and human identities. Yesterday, I dumped the complete contents of all 400 posts into Wordle and created this beautiful (if I do say so myself) image. The only edits I made to the source file were to delete auto-generated words such as the month and date, and to combine "Second Life" into "SecondLife."

If you have a blog, electronic diary or other text-based record of your thoughts, try pasting the content into Wordle for a visualization of what words (and their associated ideas) have been predominant in your work.
