I finally Wordled myself!

April 8, 2011 by k. liz

Yep! Finally! I’ve been watching all you ESL gurus out there wordle your blogs and do some reflecting on what you write about. I thought, hm, that’s cool, but wordle always froze up my internet connection. I’ve tried it several times since moving to Turkey and never had any success. However, by accident today, I found that I just have to enter the full address plus the /create. So . . . here is the link for wordle that works for me: wordle.

Now, granted, my blog is only about a month old, so this is just a little sampler of what I hope to have someday. That being said, I was kind of surprised to see what showed up. I had expected to see words such as speaking, lesson plans, reading . . . but surprising to me, those were not very prominent!

So, what do I write about? Well, apparently I count time as a very important part of posts I write. And who doesn’t? I can remember making lesson plans (and I still sometimes do) where I spend hours and hours on what I think will be a good lesson. But, it gets very wearing to do that for every lesson in a week. So, I do count time as an important factor of the ideas I’m sharing, and I’m hoping to save you all time by presenting usable materials that do not require a lot of time. My other two most used words were use and one. Well, use makes sense, but I must say, it sounds kind of boring, so maybe I should find a better word for that. One? I don’t know. I’m not sure why I point out one so many times? I guess giving different ideas or talking about different students leads me to use one a lot.

What word do I probably overuse? Interesting. Hmmmm . . . yep. I use that a lot.

Students, teaches, class, long . . . These are my next most used words. I guess those make sense for the kind of blog I am going for. But, I was surprised to find wife the same size as those others. I am the wife, so I don’t think I use the word a lot, but then I thought that maybe it was because of this post about a speaking activity.

What surprised me? Well, wife, like I just mentioned. But, there were no super surprising words that I just couldn’t believe I had written on my blog. They all seem fairly connected to my thoughts and ideas.

However, I think I shall have to do this in a few months after I’ve collected a library of posts and see what it says about me then.

If you haven’t done this yet, why not? Go give it a try! Just put your blog url into the wordle website, and reflect!

    Hi there,

    This has definitely been a fun blog challenge, hasn’t it? As you’ve just started in the blogging world – Welcome!!! – it’ll be particularly interesting to see what your word cloud will tell of your blog in a couple of months’ time. 🙂

    Looking forward to reading some more of your posts! Let’s see if wife keeps showing up, shall we? 🙂
