Word Cloud

What would a picture of all the words in this blog look like? Which words occur most frequently? What does the resulting image tell us about the words we use? Wordle allows you to create just such an image. You can either paste in a whole load of text or enter the URL of a website (like this blog) to create a word cloud. Words appear larger according to the frequency of their use. It is very pleasing to see that the two most frequently used words on this site are "students" and "creativity".
