For a long time now, the tags list has been really bothering me. I much prefer a tag cloud. Del.icio.us first introduced me to the wonders of tag clouds (gmail having already introduced me to tags) and WordPress has a tag cloud function. It has been annoying me that Blogger doesn’t. Annoying me so much that I contemplated switching blogging platform over to WordPress. However, I am attached to Blogger and Google otherwise runs my life, so I could not quite make the leap.
Although I was an early uptaker of e-mail and all things internetty, I sort of plateaued. I never learned any html (I cut and paste from other sites). Then I got my partner. When computery-type things go wrong, I plaintively say his name, elongating his single syllable into two. If things are really bad, I use three. Sporadically, and without much commitment, I google to find simplistic me a tag cloud maker. As you can see, just over there to your left, I have finally been successful.
Should you also wish to make a tag cloud and have otherwise not done so, here is the link.
I was so happy with the result, I thought I would make a thank you comment. So I surfed my way over to the original post. Plenty more people have been there before me, with their two cents: 370 of them. Mine seems pitiful, and possibly bothersome, so I haven’t commented. Here, and this, seems a better forum to thank the tag cloud maker.
Phydeaux3, should you ever find your way here: Thank you. The list was really ugly. I like the cloud much better.
