Every so often, I like to run a “tag or word cloud” against my Weblog (and Twitter). I then capture the output for future reference. This is a great, cool way of capturing a snapshot of topics that I write about at that point in time.

For Apr 2013, my Weblog’s word cloud looks as follows:

Weblog WordCloud Apr2013

(Tag cloud source: Tagxedo)

That said, it is good to understand the limitations of word clouds and that depending on the goal, there are better ways to visualize this kind of data — see Word clouds considered harmful.
