Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

It works very quickly and may be just that extra thing you could use in the presentation of your materials.Here are some examples which took less that 10 minutes to make.

Word cloud of blogs in category Religion and Spirituality.
