How did I forget about this? Thank goodness Jessica Johnson reminded me about running my blog site through a word cloud in her 2014 Blog Review post! Here's what she had to say:
"As I review/reflect on 2014 I also enjoy running my blog site through Wordle to create a word cloud that makes the words used more often larger than the other less-used words. I got the idea from Tia Henriksen in this post to use it as a way to reflect on what you are blogging about to make sure you are focusing on what is most important to you."
I used Word It Out to create my word cloud because at home I only use a Chromebook and Wordle doesn't work on it. (Keep this in mind if you have Chromebooks at school-- it's a great tool for kids as well!) Here is a post by Kim Mattina with other Chromebook friendly word cloud generators.
Looking at my word cloud, school is a big one, no surprise there! I also love that students, teachers, books, and time figure prominently. In 2015 I'm going to work hard to make writing, learning, and families be more present in my blog.
