Blogging Clouds

Why do people blog? Why is blogging such an intricate part of our daily lives today? There are all kinds of reasons, but the first that comes to mind, is that your blog is a space where you can embed your work and share your thoughts with others. It is a space for dialogue, for collaboration and  a space which you can develop into your own personal learning environment. Above, I chose some reasons by Mitch Joel on why blogging does matter and created a word cloud with Tagul.  Tagul creates awesome clouds in different shapes and offers features which other word clouds don't. 

Wordle and tagxedo also  make beautiful word clouds and I have already given examples in previous posts. Two other word clouds worth trying out are Word It Out and WonderSay , which makes animated texts that you can send through Twitter or email, or even embed in your digital spaces.

To all those celebrating the season, my best wishes and may 2011 be a great year for all!

What awesome word clouds will you be sharing?
