Wordle Word Cloud for Rick Short's B2B Marcom Blog
A Wordle Word Cloud of this posting
Wordle offers a neat and free tool that helps you see what your communications look like (in one unique way). Using their online tool, I submitted Rick Short's B2B Marcom blog and got this word cloud.
It got me wondering what my other forms of communication look like. I considered inputting the copy from:
- an ad
- a webpage
- a PowerPoint presentation
- a speech
- a press release
- this posting
Then, I wondered if such a cloud could substitute for an abstract or outline ... or if it could replace my entire presentation or paper or press release, or would it make for a better posting? So I wordle'd this posting and pasted the results here as well.
I'm only half-serious about using a Wordle word cloud for a real press release, but, if it works like I think it should (weighing words at the top higher than words at the bottom, weighing repeated words more than words that appear only once, etc.) <UPDATE: it doesn't -see my comment> then Wordle could be a good tool to check our communications.
What do you think about wordle and word clouds?
