A couple of my Twitter pals (my handle: @bridgetteb) just showed me this fab website wordle.net where you can copy in any kind of text or a link from your blog and makes a tagcloud of your words. Aside from being fun, this is an interesting way to learn more about what you’re drawn to. Here’s how:
Take your resume, journal, blog or various cocktail napkins you’re always scribbling on, write it up, and dump the text here. Then, see what words pop out in your tag cloud. Some words may reveal less-than-stellar writing habits (in my case), others may be more profound. I also found that hitting the “randomize” button made different words pop, creating other insights. It’s an intruiging and cool way to see how what you write says about you.
