Playing with Word Clouds

I've seen word clouds on other blogs and wanted to try some myself.  The first word cloud I tried was the one recommended on the Facebook Bootcamp for Genea-Bloggers site. I made this cloud at ZoomClouds:

I can update the cloud by visiting their site and telling it to update. It doesn't pull from all of my blog posts  - just the most recent ones. 

I've seen another type of word cloud on the blogs of some authors.  They used Wordle. This cloud does not update automatically, but creates a static image.  To change the words, you have to create an entirely new image. I think this one is more accurate.


I've put both clouds on my blog's sidebar
