Wordle for 2020


I used to do annual Worldles as a fun way to visualise what I’d talked about the previous twelve months; that being the typical duration of a year. Here they were for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Alas, while the Wordle.net blog is still around, the original site is not. But the Wordart.com site still lets you import text and generate some silly fun, and it ended up with something far more detailed:

Word cloud from post titles over the last twelve months

FreeBSD didn’t come as a surprise, nor did my renewed interest and advocacy for RSS. I talked about music more than I expected, and I’m pleased to see that virus didn’t get more of a mention. Lots of new stuff too, it seems.
