At work I have my students make Wordles all the time as a fun way to see new vocabulary words, or to brainstorm, or to see what word they are over-using. It recognizes words used more frequently and makes those visually bigger. It also takes out function words and prepositions so you are left with only verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and nouns. Today I noticed that you could but in blogs or urls to create a Wordle and I had to see what came up with mine. Here is the thumbnail that I was able to share.
