A New Feature Here At The Asylum

UPDATE: Shan's Wordle Wednesdays will now be Shan's Week~End Wordles starting Saturday, March 7, 2009

Starting this week, we {I do have voices, you know...} will be hosting Shan's Wordle Wednesdays {NOW UPDATED to Shan's Week~End Wordles}.

Originally, I was just going to make this a weekly post for myself to see what would show up, but one of the outpatient therapy group members, LadyStyx, wanted it to be for all of us. A few others from the group seconded and thirded, etc., this suggestion/request and Shan's Wordle Wednesdays was born. Thanks guys! {I think...}

Not sure what this is? Then go here to see mine.

Wordles are completely customizable with colors {you can choose your own, or use their palettes}, layouts and fonts. You can put in your blog URL or just type in some random words to see what you get.

Shan's Wordle Wednesday participation suggestions/instructions:

1) Download MWSnap so that you can have a good size image on your blog post. The link the Wordle site gives you as a picture of your creation is very small. The site suggests making a screenshot for a larger image. I tried this, but it only gave me a blank image. A good friend suggested MWSnap which worked like a charm AND you can choose exactly what you want it to "snap" for you, just make sure you click the button that says "snap any area". {This is optional if you have another program that will do the same thing}

2) Go to Wordle.net to create your Wordle. {I use this color code chart to completely customize mine}



3) Post it on your blog with a link to Shan's Wordle Wednesdays {now updated to Shan's Week~End Wordles} or Last Shreds Of Sanity

4) Come back here to the Shan's Week~End Wordles post for that week and sign the Mr. Linky. Please leave a comment as well. I love comments.

5) Grab one of our buttons:
















{I am hoping that A) this will be a hit and B) No one steals this idea as their own or worse yet that someone already had the idea before me! Fingers crossed y'all!)

Today is a very big day in the Where’s Wenda? Contest. I am visiting all of the SITS followers. Can I do it? There are around 1000 followers. Oh my! Better grab my cup of coffee and get on my way. Be sure to visit Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha and Three Bay B Chicks as part of your contest entry.

What a neat idea! If I can find the time and patience to deal with it (yeah, right!) I'll try to create my own. That should be interesting...

I'm in!

In a way I had the idea first... but not necessarily with everyone participating. For the past month or so I've included a wordle of my post at the bottom of each post.
BUT I think that having it as a thing for everyone to do is a cool idea. : )

I don't see a Mr. Linky for the Week End Wordle, so here's my link for it. =)
