Word Cloud

It’s that time again! TIme for a Word Cloud of many of the words in my blog. Every so often, I put the URL of my blog into a word cloud generator. I do this to see if  the words that are most important to me are demonstrated on my website. The more a word occurs on the website you type into these word cloud generators, the larger the word is in the word cloud.

Here is the Word Cloud (generated on Tagul) of the words in my blog as of October 17, 2014:

Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 10.51.05 PMLooking at the words in this word cloud, it is clear that my concentration has been in the right areas for me as a leader in education. LEARN is the largest word, and the most pronounced in my blog thus far.  This makes me proud, since my blog is entitled, “It’s All About Learning”!  I have been reading a great deal both online and in paper books. Reading is so important to me now and in my past. I love to read!  I just wish I had more time to read!  You will see the word Grade is quite large. As I mentioned in a previous blogpost, letter grades have really been on my mind these days with my daughter entering Grade 4 this year (the year that letter grades start in many schools in British Columbia). You can one of my recent posts about letter grades and my concerns here.

You can see other word clouds I have made throughout the history of my blog here and here and here and here.

Some wonderful tools for making word clouds include: Tagxedo, Wordle,  and Tagul. These are only just a few such tools.

So, now it’s your turn …. do the most-written words in your blog truly represent you as an educator and/or a leader in education?  I’d love to see how your word clouds turn out!

    Ok, so that is cool! I am going to try it on my blog…will have to figure this out. That is what is so great about having a PLN on Twitter. How would I get this type of information in the “old days”! :0) Now, I get cool bits of information from blogs, from Twitter, from Facebook. Thanks for this! And, your word cloud is very reflective of what you do on your blog and also on what you tweet!

      Sorry, I just saw this comment!

      Yay! It is so great when we can learn things from one another. I learned about Wordle from a VP friend from Ontario about 3 years ago. She did the same thing on her blog and I thought, “Cool, I’m going to give that a try!” Now, every so often, I do a new word cloud of my blog to see if the focus has changed at all. Kinda interesting. I checked out your word cloud – it’s great!
