Wordle Challenge – May 2010

I went to post my Wordle challenge for June when I realized just how far I am behind.  I never actually posted May’s Wordle challenge, so here goes!  At the end of last year, I started the Wordle challenge. Wordle.net is a site that allows you to create word pictures of your blog / site based on the frequency with which you use certain words. Each month I run Dad in the Middle through Wordle to get a visual image of what the blog has been focused on recently. Previous Wordle graphics can be found at the bottom of this post.

Wordle Challenge – April 2010

At the end of last year, I started the Wordle challenge. Wordle.net is a site that allows you to create word pictures of your blog / site based on the frequency with which you use certain words. Each month I run Dad in the Middle through Wordle to get a visual image of what the blog has been focused on recently. Previous Wordle graphics can be found at the bottom of this post.

This one was heavily influenced by a post I did on May 1 in which I summarized tweets (RT) from the Orange Conference 2010.  I thought it was cool that it came up in Orange when I ran the Wordle randomizer.  I’m always glad to see words like “God,” “Kids,” and “Teaching” featured on the sight. Spurgeon showed up again this month as I restarted my synopsis of his book Come ‘Ye Children this past month.

I’m always glad to see words like “God,” “Kids,” and “Teaching” featured on the sight.  The prevalence of the Tips for Large Group teaching series is also obvious from the Wordle.  If I am confessing, it does concern me a little bit that “Jesus” was so small in this month’s Wordle, but that’s why I run these in the first place.  They help me to refocus on what’s really important when it comes to my blog.

Wordle Challenge – February 2010

A couple of months ago, I started the Wordle challenge. Wordle.net is a site that allows you to create word pictures of your blog / site based on the frequency with which you use certain words. Each month I run Dad in the Middle through Wordle to get a visual image of what the blog has been focused on recently. Previous Wordle graphics can be found at the bottom of this post.

Here is my Wordle.net for February 2010 created on February 28, 2010:

I was glad to “kids” and “Bible” featured this month as the combination of those two is one of my passions.  Many of the entries are influenced by the last post of the month which was a review of Phil Vischer’s new venture called What’s In the Bible. As much as I respect Phil, I attribute the timing of the post to the fact that Phil is as large as God in this Wordle.  It was interesting to find out that capitalization counts in Worlde.  I wonder how big “ministry” would have been if I had used consistent capitalization.  So, there you have it, the February 2010 edition of the Wordle challenge.  Let me know what you think!

Wordle Challenge – January 2010

Last month I started the Wordle challenge. Wordle.net is a site that allows you to create word pictures of your blog / site based on the frequency with which you use certain words. Each month I run Dad in the Middle through Wordle to get a visual image of what the blog has been focused on recently. Previous Wordle graphics can be found at the bottom of this post.

“Know” and “Kids” were prominent in the past month. This is likely because of the new series I started on Tips for Large Group Teaching. That also explains why “large” and “groups” were also prominently featured. It always worries me a little bit when “God” is not prominently featured in my blog. I could blame it on the series on teaching, but given that the first post in February in this series was #13 – It’s All About Jesus (Tips For Large Group Teaching), we’ll have to work on that!

Wordle Challenge – December 2009

In the past, I have talked about Wordle.netWordle.net is a sight that allows you to create word pictures of your blog / sight based on the frequency with which you use certain words.  I like to look at the Wordle.net for Dad in the Middle every so often to see if my focus is where it should be.  My plan is to start running it monthly and posting the results here!  Here is my Wordle.net for December 2009 created January 5, 2010:

It wasn’t surprising to see Christmas, Carol and Advent all as prominant words as we ran the Christmas Carol Advent from December 1 through December 25.  The date was in the title each day, so it also isn’t surprising to see December featured in the Wordle.  Not surprisingly, Children’s and Ministry were also both featured words.  Likewise, Kids was prominent in December.  I would have likes to have seen God and Jesus and Christ a little more prominent in my blog, but I was happy to see that they are still featured.
