Wordles - do you know what they are?

A Wordle.  What a strange word which I didn't know what it meant until today.  I've seen them but didn't know their name.  Do you know what a Wordle is?

A Wordle is a word cloud.  Wordle, or weighted list in visual design, is a visual representation for text data, typically used to depict keyword metadata on websites or to visualize free form text. According to Wikipedia anyway.

So I went to a site which is suppose to help make them.  I got this information from my Graduate Assistant who had an Instructional Technology class.  She gave me her PDF lessons and some of them I can do without being in the class.  This was one that I did with putting around 30 quilting words down for it to it's thing.  I chose the rectangle design because I might have a use for it.


Then I did this one which I just plugged in my blog address and IT chose words from my blog to put into the Wordle and I chose a heart shape.
It was a fun thing to learn and I have a lot more to learn about it but it is past quitting time and I need to close up the office and start my weekend.  It's a gaming weekend so no quilting until Sunday.  I did, however work on a little bit of cross stitch last night.  The Angel is coming along.

I hope everybody has a wonderful night.

I'll catch up with you later.
