Tagxedo is so totally and completely cool… and I found it…. through my 8 year old – Mister Bee.
We were working on his weekly spelling homework tonight – he gets to choose from several options of Spelling Challenges and they just have to add up to the total numbers the teachers specified (different activities to choose from basically).
One of the activities was for the kids to get online and go to Tagxedo!
Here is what it is, in the words of Tagxedo.
Tagxedo turns words -- famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes, even your love letters -- into a visually stunning word cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.
Just sounds cool doesn’t it?
For a very long time I have had an idea marinating in my brain… I really wanted to use a sharpie and write the lyrics to the Elton John song “Your Song” on something – a canvas, a chair, something. This song was the song the Hubby and I danced to at our wedding.
Well…. guess what? I put the lyrics in to Tagxedo!
I think I L.O.V.E. this pic!
I think I may be ordering this one and framing it for a future Gallery Wall in my Living Room. That’s how much I love this!!
You can buy items with your words through the Tagxedo site – t-shirts, mugs and more.
It’s pure greatness. You can pick from many different themes (pictures for your words to fit into), colors, fonts, etc. You can also upload your own images too.
I could never just stop at one.
Here is our Family Words.
You can also type in a website and it will pull words directly from it for your “Word Cloud”. I typed in this here Blog and look what I got.
It’s a Lightning Cloud… because that’s how I feel when I come up with a Blog Post idea… like Lightning just struck.
In the shape of a Coffee Mug because a) it is my favorite morning beverage and b) we hope you enjoy us every single morning while you are drinking your favorite morning beverage!
See You Soon…..
