Looking for a simple way to illustrate a point on your blog/website or add a bit of pizazz to a presentation? Check out Wordle – it’s a very basic tool that allows you to quickly create tag clouds.

You can customise the colours, font and layout of words. To create the word cloud you either paste in the copy you want to use or you can paste in a link to take the tags directly from your blog or website. The size of the words depend on the frequency with which they appear in your text or on your site.

Here’s a quick tag cloud I made. It literally took two minutes. You can either link to the Wordle site or save the image as a Jpeg. Simples.
