What a Wordle can teach you about yourself

It's Day 30 of the 2011 WordCount Blogathon. Tomorrow's our last day. We've almost made it. To celebrate the near end, we get a day to play. It's Wordle Day! With Wordles, you get to have fun with words, colors, fonts and more. If you haven't ever tried it, it's just silly fun -- something that definitely fits with my theme this month. It'll open up a world of exploration about your personal preferences, what you like and don't like, why something works for you or not, and whether you'll wind up naming your Wordles. I didn't. But here they are -- my Wordles. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much I enjoyed making them:

This one is based on my blog's URL. Funny how it seems to have captured mostly the words from the posts I wrote about collecting.

This one is based on the magazines and websites my articles have appeared in most recently. I typed in the words, changed the colors and fonts around, and this is what appeared.

And this one is based on a specific post I wrote in the early days of the Blogathon. I had to key the words in myself, however, to get the right words to show up. Inserting the URL for that page didn't work. Anyway, it's about the things that I enjoy doing.

Of all the Wordles I created for today's post, my favorite is the first one. It's larger in density, fills out the space better, and I like the color variation. Can you tell I like blues and greens? I also like the one in the middle, as it highlights my fondness for Arizona. The third one works for me as well, though, because of the colors -- they make me think of the desert where I live.

Did you create a Wordle today? If you did, did that action make you realize you have a preference for certain colors or fonts or patterns? What did you learn about yourself in the process?

I like how you had three different wordles and as I looked at each of them- they did 'say' something about you- Nisha had to help me get my clearer- for some reason I couldn't do it clear and it came out sort of fuzzy- still not sure why that was.

Ohhhh, good for you to be creative enough to do multiple Wordles. They're so pretty, huh? I like the green/black theme. That's what I used when I created mine a few weeks ago. Take care, Jackie.

I love that you did three unique Wordles. I only had the energy to post one today, but I will use it again!
