Wordle – Create your own word clouds

¬†Wordle is a quick and easy to use website that creates word clouds from blocks of text or from web page url’s

Although you cannot directly save them, you can do a screen grab, hit print screen on your keyboard and then paste and crop it in word or an image editing program.

For quick screen grabs I really like the small and quick program MWsnap which can be downloaded here for free!

    I saw a great example of this where they had printed out two copies and cut the second copy up, mounting various words on sticky tabs on the original copy. This gave a great 3D effect

    Sounds good. Do you have any examples you would like to post?
