Keepa’s Wordle

By: Ardis E. Parshall - November 20, 2008

I’m too lazy today, apparently, to write a real post, so here is another visual. LDS Media Talk points us today toward wordle.net, a nifty little site that analyzes a block of text to produce a “word cloud” indicating by relative size which words are used most often in that text. I pointed Wordle toward Keepa’s Topical Guide, which lists the titles of all posts.

This is what Wordle says we talk about:

  2. Tell that to Susa.

  3. Ardis, your blog just screams “mormon”.

    Now there is evidence for that kind of statement. :)

  4. I’d have expected “Genealogy” to be a bit more prominent.

    I eagerly anticipate your forthcoming shipwreck post, by the way. :-)

  5. If you start at the top in the center and read down, we learn that Ardis is a member of a “Racist Natural Even Church.” :)

    This was fun. And how did I miss that Susa Young Gates post from a few months back? Excellent and enjoyable stuff, as always. Thanks Ardis.

  6. Why does this look like an Enrichment Night craft project?

  7. I’m so pleased to see that _knock_ (as in knock, knock) is featured prominently.

  8. This is a Mormon History blog?! Wow; I have to pay attention.

  9. Someone did wordle with General Conference. Very cool.

  10. Oh, here’s the link.

  11. One of the best wordles I’ve seen yet.

  12. Wordles huh? This is the first I’ve heard of them. Always something new. But I guess that is why I read here. Always something new AND interesting. :) Thanks.

  13. It’s a very churchy wordle, but not very religious. Lots of people and history and structures and organizations. Very different subject matter from m&m’s conference wordle link.

    I particularly like how the Relief Society bookends the whole structure. Kind of holding things together.

    And, by the way, is that my Clarissa up in the corner? I’ll have to point it out to her.

  14. Funny, funny responses, all.

    I’ve been running some texts that most of Keepa’s readers would recognize through Wordle and am thinking about posting a half dozen of them as a guessing game. They’re all very different, very distinctive — as distinctive as the General Conference wordle that m&m links to.

  15. Less “Announcement” and more “Speculation”!

    GREAT idea! Love it.

  17. m&m, Ardis showed me a few of her Wordles Friday, and trust me, you WILL “love it.”
