What I talked about in 2008

Today many bloggers are doing a “2008 wrap-up post” or “Year in review” or something similar on their blogs, writing about and pontificating about the year that was. 

I was thinking of doing something similar for today, the last post of 2008. 

Then a twitter connection introduced me to a very cool tool called “Wordle”.

Wordle takes the written word from a website, blog feed, or even cut-and-paste and creates a “Tag Cloud”.    A Tag Cloud is a visual representation of a given set of words, with the most frequently used words displayed with more prominence, (bolded, larger size, color, etc.)   The less frequently used words are smaller and less noticeable. 

This graphical device gives you a simple, at a glance way to know what where the most important/frequent topics discussed in a given piece of work.

By running all of my blog posts for 2008 through Wordle, it created a tag cloud which pretty much sums up my year. (On my blog anyway)  

 Here it is:

Pretty cool, huh?

By the way…how was YOUR 2008?

No matter how your 2008 was, I truly hope your 2009 is fantastic!
