Whether you write for a blog or not, you’re probably familiar with the increasingly common outlet of publishing your writing on the internet via blogging. If you’re a writer who wants to share their work with a wider audience, blogging is a great way to do it. But what if you want to get a little more creative with your blog posting? Wordle can help you do just that!
Wordle is a website that lets you create cool visual representations of words. With it, you can create graphs and images that illustrate the synonyms, antonyms, prefixes, and suffixes that make up a particular word. We’ll show you how to use it to get creative with your blog posting, which has several other benefits along the way. Let’s get started!
What is Wordle?
Wordle is a website that lets you create cool visual representations of words. It’s great for writers and bloggers who want to get creative with their content because it’s easy to use and adorable to look at.
To put it simply, Wordle lets you create different shapes (called wordlets) from words. You can choose which words you want in your shape, the size of your wordlet, what color you want it to be, and more. Once you’ve created your shape, you can upload it onto the website or save it as a file on your computer.
There are several benefits associated with Wordle in addition to making cool shapes out of words:
* You can search for synonyms, antonyms, prefixes, and suffixes
* You’ll learn how many times each word is used
* You can find the most commonly used words in any document
* You can also generate infographics on which words are used most often
How to Use Wordle to Get Creative With Blog Posting
When you first visit Wordle, you are automatically presented with an option to browse by word. You could browse by the most popular words or the most used words in a given category. If you scroll down the page, you’ll see options for other categories to explore.
Once you click on Blog Posting, there will be new options for how to use Wordle. This includes being able to create text art or images that illustrate how adjectives and nouns work together. You can also create a blog post layout with only certain words in it as well as a blog line-up that is created based off of adjectives and nouns. Finally, you can generate a blog post layout that has all of the words in it but organized into different shapes and colors instead of traditionally reading them out loud one after another.
Step 1: Find Synonyms in Your Blog Post
The first thing you need to do is find synonyms for the word or words you want to use in your blog post. You can do this by searching your blog post title, which will most likely return a list of synonyms. If that’s not an option, you can also type in a word and see what comes up.
Take “blogging” for example. While it may be difficult to find all the different meanings of the word “blogging” before writing a blog post about it, you can easily find many other related words like “blogging sites” and “social media blogging.” As you can see, there are so many synonyms for the word “blogging,” but only one will actually work in your blog post title!
Step 2: Choose the Type of Graph You Want to Create
First, you’ll need to choose the type of graph you want to create. In this case, let’s make a word cloud! Wordle has two different types of graphs: the default bubble graph and the line graph.
The default bubble graph is great for when you want to compare one word with another or visualize a set of data related to an idea.
The line graph is great for visualizing trends over time or to see how one idea changes in relation to another. Because we want to use our word cloud as a way to showcase synonyms, let’s go with the line graph!
Next, we need to choose which word we’ll be using as our central focus. We’ll use “blog” because it’s the most commonly used word in English (the site says that there are approximately 5,000 instances of it). Let’s get started on getting creative with your blog posting!
Step 3: Create Your Wordle
In order to get started on this process, make sure you have a Wordle account.
Once you’re signed up, create your wordle by clicking the “create new wordle” button in the top right corner. This will take you to a blank page where your new wordle will automatically start loading.
At the bottom of this page is a drop-down menu that contains options for choosing different things about your wordle. You need to click on the “link” option and choose a link from the list of words you have on hand. In our case, we chose “blogging” which gave us some cool options for words with synonyms and antonyms associated with it.
Step 4: Gif animation or SVG image?
Once you’ve created a Wordle, you need to decide how you want to present it. You can either create an animated gif or an SVG image file. If your blog post has more than one word, it’s best to make a gif because it can better contain the word’s meaning and take up less space on your blog post. However, if your blog post is just one word like “love” then an SVG is better because it takes less time and space to create.
Wordle can help you get creative with your blog posting in several ways. You can use it to illustrate words, synonyms, antonyms, prefixes and suffixes so that readers can see the different shades of meaning that make up a word.
The best part is, Wordle is free and easy to use! Just visit the website at www.wordle.net and start making some cool visual representations of your concept or idea!
