another take on the adage "a picture’s worth a thousand words"

I just did a Wordle of the scatterbeams blog feed.  Wordle creates a graphic representation of a submitted block of text, with the most often used words showing up in the largest font.  This can be  interesting feedback for a writer.

The best part about this Wordle: the biggest scatterbeams word is BOOK, followed by GOOD. 

Wordle: scatterbeams 071109

Okay, cool is way too understated – picture Kermit the Frog throwing his head back and waving his arms in the air.  This is happy-making.

(Catherine, the biggest word on your blog is “bike”.)

  • Great way to start the day – you made me laugh out loud. (And George Carlin still does, too.) I really miss your humour. Thank you for the visit and comment!

  • BAHAHAHA i just saw a youtube of george the other day… i was in need of a laugh and typed in funniest comedy ever… and of course he had an appearance on that search.
    love you both. lots.

  • ps wordles are rad. but their name… i dunno… not nearly as rad as what it is. It is not like it is a word crossed with an effing poodle.
    but it does kind seem a bit like a long noodle – weaving throughout to create a textile (read text-style) that is more overt than in its rainbow of flowing paragraphs.

  • word-poodle… oh dear

    word-noodle? YES… i love this – words all over the screen like a plate of spaghettti

    and text-style – best word-combo there: i love the imagery in your comment – thank you!
