Wordle is beautiful. It is of course besides, the point that it makes beautiful word clouds. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. And why wouldn’t it be? Especially when it is made up of a thousand words. Well, maybe not a thousand, but a hundred perhaps.I’ve more or less been stuck to my computer screen all week – preparing my report for most parts of it, checking my mail, having fruitful and not-so-fruitful gtalk conversations, watching new House MD episodes and so on. While at the above mentioned, I did look into the updates my reader had to share with me – and found a few new blogs to follow. Notably, an unquiet mind showed me the world of wordle through his post.

What the website does is simple, you give it content, it would give you a weighted cloud of words in return. It gives you an opportunity to analyse what words you use most often (for those with a geeky touch in them) in a beautiful cloud form (for the lesser mortals). So I thought I’ll use the website to analyse what my blog’s about. It gave me this:

Wordle of my blog

Turns out I give a lot of importance to people in my blog and like football. And I didn’t feel like stopping with just figuring out how my blog looks. So I took the previlage of feeding the toy some of my friends’ blog feeds. Ashwin writes thus:

Ah, “good times around” it says – in coherence with his post on good ol’ days in college.

Nikhil (along with Vyaas of course) goes:

It almost looks like it’s a riddle. Or a jumbled set of words from which you’d have to make sense out of. The best part is that you can connect them as you like: “take chemistry and graduate actually, little students in ya favourite class” – doesn’t make sense? I don’t understand either.

My other blog with shashank appears like this:

Classic. Pure rubbish – totally unrelated, and nothing is prominant. It defines what the blog is about – pure gold plated shit!

You can of course go on all day playing around with wordle. Feel free to explore! Before I end this post, I’d like to attribute all the images in this post to wordle, respecting the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.
