Wordle magic

 When I saw the wordle on the I speak Melsh blog I remembered that I had meant to create a wordle of my journaling for Me:the abridged version to use as the back page. 
If you haven’t tried wordles then go and play.  You need some text and flashplayer loaded – then just play with changing colour, font and layout. 
I increased the number of words that is used to 400 (under layout ) because the default is 150 and I wanted more words to show.  I also kept some words together like ‘see also’ by putting ~  between them  see~also.  I then played - I customised a palette with my favourite colours and played with font and layout and these are some of the ones I liked.
pure luck that see also was separate – you cannot control where a word is placed
this one used the any which way layout choice
and for this next one I double clicked on the words to get the online font – it works on any of the fonts.
To save then I hit print and then choose cute pdf writer as my printer.

These look great! I made an artist book using wordles of some of the bard's sonnets. I haven't got a picture up yet, but I will do soon.
