Create Your Own Golf Word Orgy (Awesome)

















You know how every once in a while you come across something so fabulous you just want to tell everyone about it...But then you don't really want people to know about it because it's so good you want it to be your secret...And then, in the end, you've just got to share it because it wouldn't be fair to keep it to yourself?

Well that's what happened with me and Wordle. Wordle is a website that takes your text and magically mixes it up into a beautiful "orgy of words" (my discription). You can enter a page of text or even a URL... or you can selectively enter chosen words. In each case an amazingly formatted word cloud will result and I assure you, you'll be delighted. Yes delighted I said, and I mean it. It's that much fun.

I actually discovered Wordle on Meghan Asha's ultra amazing blog. Meghan is a gorgeous geek (yep, they exist)... one of the fabulous Non Society girls. Since she was nice enough to share it with her readers, I thought I should be too.

Of course the first thing I did was to put in golf words. The wordle above is just a snippet of the wikipedia entry for "golf". Yep, believe it or not. ...And the two below are two different renditions of one of my favorite blog posts. The one I wrote recently about the Lacoste family. There are tons of stellar wordles on the site too.

So give Wordle a try, use your imagination and create your own orgy. Believe me, it's fun!





























Update Had to add this "PGA Tour winners from 1997 to 2007" by reader Cal. Such a perfect graphic representation of Tiger's dominance.
