Wordle

I saw this Wordle thingummy at Books Please, and it looked fun - and indeed it is! You can type in a blog address, or just paste in some text, and then customise further what arrives... This is what happened when I put my blog address in...


Have a go at making your own at Wordle.net! No real point to them, but fun, I think you'll agree?

    I loved the blog entry below about doctor's wives.
    If I may be so rude as to enquire: what is the main topic of your doctorate?
    I am an ancient bookoholic, displace to Manhattan.
    Came to you via my friend Bee's excellent blog.

  5. Hello ewix - thanks for your comment. Not at all rude to ask, of course! My topic is fantasy in interwar domestic novels... just starting, so exploring avenues at the moment...

  6. Oh, I like this a lot and can see it would be useful for analysing some of my writing, to see how many interesting words I've used, once the pronouns and conjunctions and other mortar-words have been removed.

  7. And I will just add, since the more often you use a word, the bigger it shows, you can see which words you've overused.

    I love this.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
