Since I’ve been banging around doing almost nothing for the past few days, there might as well be something to show for all of it. Get yourself to Wordle.net immediately and make some of these. All you have to do is copy and paste a little text and voila.

I’m still playing round with it a bit, but you do have to know how to screencapture to turn these into .jpg or .pngs. They give you a sweet little piece of html so you can place these forever on your blog or site, but they are small.

No go make one and leave me a link so I can find your Wordle.
