I keep finding interesting uses for Wordle.net. Check out a wordle of the lists above:

I had never heard of Karen Kingsbury before, but there she is 7 times. I would have thought Ted Dekker would have been the top name. And Thomas Nelson is cleaning up.

An interesting tool, no?

Sadly, you cannot change the font, color, or other settings once created like this. I did not know that. Those who are unfamiliar with Wordle can visit wordle.net and click on the Create link to make their own. If it takes you more than 60 seconds, then you must have a very slow connection. It is worth it just to see what can be done. Enjoy!

Thanks for posting this Brandilyn! You always seem to be on top of things.
