A common feature on many blogs is a Tag/Word Cloud, visualization of word frequency in a given text as a weighted list (frequency determines word size). This can be a helpful tool to quickly see the most common topics in a given text and a creative source of word art. 

Today I was introduced to a fun web applet by Wordle that allows you to input text or an rss feed from which is generated a word cloud. The image above is a word cloud from this blog.

To give it a try I also made a word cloud from the text of the U.S. Constitution seen here below.
