My name is Kate and I am a geek. This week I'm messing about with Tagxedo.

I freely admit to having a geeky, nerdy side
not as much as him
Dr Sheldon Cooper, The Big Bang Theory
or him
Dr Leonard Hofstader, The Big Bang Theory
But a geeky nerd non the less. I not only love messing about with all things sewing related but graphics, photos etc too. 

I've used word clouds extensively in the past but they got a tiny bit old hat and you saw them EVERYWHERE. Well time has moved on and I rediscovered the likes of Tagxedo and Wordle, the two most popular sites. 
They say a picture paints a thousand words, well these actually do, a couple of hundred anyway. I took the URL for the blog and plopped it into Tagxedo. Hey presto, loads of fun later after messing with fonts, colours etc and here you have The Literate Stitch Blog as a word cloud.

Then just for good measure I typed in my Facebook page URL and added my logo as a custom shape. 
Pretty neat huh?
If you look carefully you can find the names of some of the great people who follow and comment on my page :D

Go on, have a go, you know you want to :D
