Word clouds are a very creative way to show an overview of the main focus or what is discussed the most in a certain text. There are several different ways to create a word cloud. Three of the best are found at wordle.nettagxedo.com, and abcya.com/word_clouds. With many of these sites, you can copy and paste the text you want to draw from, eliminate common word like “and” or “but.” Some also let you assign a number ot each word to show its importance or times of occurrence. You can also customize the font, color, and layout. Some programs also form the words into specific shapes that you can change depending on the topic. The following word cloud shows what words are used most often in this blog. The bigger the word, the more times it occurs in this blog. https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/wordle%20(2).jpg?_subject_uid=379851753&w=AAANbKzhkJCw9VPw4_BvGqY8EmZdr8AwKH1BYEAVIXlZxw
