Anibal's Wordle

I saw this afternoon this curious application in Big Lee's blog and then in Sidney's Roundwood's blog. It is basically a tool that searches a piece of text or, in this case, their respective blogs history of posts, to create what it's called a "word cloud" (see image below) or the most repeated words in the blog, grouped "artistically" and with different sizes relative to the number of times they're repeated.

I found it really-really curious so decided to give a try to my own blog, et voilà this is what i got:
Not surprisingly GERMAN and BRITISH (slightly unbalanced in favour of the former) are the two most relevant words, considering that my main focus of interest is in WWI on the Western Front.

If you want to give a try, just go to the Wordle website.
