When I finally tried the much-talked about Wordle, I decided to give it free-reign when coming up with my "word cloud". I just typed S Studio's URL and let it spin its magic.
What came out shouldn't be a surprise to me. After all, those are words that I've been using on this blog over the last week or so.
Yet, I found it strangely alarming to realise that most of those words don't really say much about my blog, or myself. Or at least, they're not saying what I want it to say.
And, it freaked me.
It made me realise that perhaps, I'm not blogging the very things that I wish to be blogging about. That I may be spending way too much time writing things that don't really share the message that I wish to share.
A few weeks ago, before I even tried Wordle, I decided to write my own "word cloud" by hand in my journal/sketchbook. That time, I only used words that mean a lot to me. Words that I wish people will associate myself and my blog with. I called them "Words of Life."
And, if I was being true to those words here at S Studio, then my Wordle "word cloud" would've looked more like this:
I guess, I better start aligning what I want to say in this blog (and my life in general!) --- to what I actually say, right? Now, to figure out how to get that going.

What does your blog say about you?
