Cloudy Flower

Ever see those text clouds that take common words from a blog/site/etc. and smoosh them into a shape? I was bored, and  I saw a site, and now I'm going to make you look at the one that was generated for me:

Some of the word placements are interesting - how 'sewing things' is kind of front and center, and 'little time' is kind of prominent on the lower right. I don't know how these are generated but I'm wondering if its the most common words that are largest.... I'm also wondering when I've used the word 'don.'

There are a few different options you can play with - shape, font, color - but I went with something slightly Valentiney. Give it a try - and let me know if you do! I'd love to check out your clouds :)


  1. That is SO FUN!! I'm going to give it a try, but not today. Yawn. :)

  2. Love this! It's usually done on a frequency/prominence ratio, so it may be telling you something here lol

  3. I found this site yesterday too, it's pretty cool. Your cloud turned out great!
