I’m part of a wonderful team running a fun website that sells word clouds on t-shirts. The site is called If you’d like to find out more, head on over and, if you’re a blogger, see what your word cloud has to say.

Background: A word cloud is a weighted list of words. Give us your blog URL and our thrifty robot scans your site, counts up as many words as it can find in thirty seconds, and spits them out in a nice pretty picture. The words you use more often are larger, and the less-frequently-used words are not. We also have word clouds taken from the archives of non-digital proto-bloggers like Herman Melville and Shakespeare. There’s a bunch of colors to choose from and different fonts to play with as well. An exceptional group of people worked extra hard to make this all happen, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I do hope you’ll pay us a visit.
