Hey genea-kids, it's Saturday Night - time for lots of Genealogy Fun!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
1) Go to the Wordle site - www.wordle.net and create your own unique Wordle - it's a word cloud. You can use either a clump of text, enter your own words (say, surnames, or given names), use a blog page address, or something else. Your choice! Be creative with the fonts, colors, backgrounds, and layout.
2) Save it as an image (I used Print Screen, pasted it to a Word document, used the Windows snipping tool to edit it, and saved it to a file). Tell us how you did it.
3) Show us your handiwork! Add the image to a blog post of your own or on a web page of your own. Tell me in a comment here where it is.
Note: If you want to email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), I'll put it up here on Genea-Musings for you as an update to this post.
Well, I did this once, a few months ago, not long after starting this blog. Maybe it's time to give it another whirl.

Well, as you can see (assuming you've been following my blog), Wordle takes a sampling of recent blog entries and uses the words found in them to create a word cloud. It even grabbed the rant on Commercials I just uploaded a few minutes prior, while leaving out a lot of material I've covered less recently. In fact, from this cloud, it looks like my blog is more of a tech blog than a genealogy blog!
