Everybody and their mother blogger has noted Wordle, the lovely tag generator. I thigk I was one of the first to note it, but hey, who gives a flying fart about being web first except blog-o–ego-maniacs.

Okay I was just google chatting with chilly Sue Waters and she share with me this site:

which beyond the weird feline URL, offers an interface that creates a tag list for a given flickr account, which, as text, can be put into Wordle, so the above image represents my tagging activity in flickr..

If this kind of stuff has any value, please support me monthly on Patreon or a one time PayPal kibble toss

  1. Hey, I acknowledged that I was copying you when I did my obligatory Wordle post. You were the first one I saw post about it. I don’t know if I count for anything, but I’m happy to give you the credit.

    It’s a cool idea to pull the tags from Flickr too, even if it isn’t the most user-friendly site at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Its actually also very cool to Wordle your account. MIne is on my blog, and I have started to put together other Wordles. It gets to be infectious and topics start to accumulate. I will spend an hour on various permutations and color schemes.

  3. I’m glad you like the Flickr Wordle tool. I had thought of using it on The Edublogger but decided it was a bit harder to use for those less tech savvy. I have been a bit harsh about Wordle but my mind is slowly being changed – did you know people have been Wordling the bible?
