This is a list of words that YOU have used to describe me. These are words that as far as the Internet knows are what I’m associated with, what I’m known for, and what I’m all about… pretty neat huh? (if you want to see it in full sized glory just click on it, it’s much bigger than the thumbnail).
I created this by first going to my twitter lists and copying all the lists I’m on to a notepad file (40) and stripping everything from them except the list name (which won’t take much time at all thanks to Rick’s awesome excel walk through below).
Next I went to Wordle and dumped the list of words in and created the awesomeness you see above.
Besides being nice to look at what’s the point of doing something like this?
Online Reputation Management
What are you all about? How are people perceiving you? Ware you putting out the right vibe, talking about the right things, being known for what you want to be known for?
Lets say you did this little experiment and you wanted to be known for your charity work, or non profit work but when you looked at the list terms like comic books, art, or goofy came up more than your others. What would that mean to you?
It would suggest you’re not talking enough (or at all) about what you think / want to. It could mean that you’ve drawn the wrong followers for what you hope to achieve on Twitter. It could also mean nothing at all. You’d have to ultimately be the judge of that.
So here’s your homework. Take a few minutes and go make one of these, then come back and put the link to it in the comments below to share with everyone else.
OR share it via Twitter and use the tag #WordleShare
Can’t wait to see ‘em,

p.s. This wasn’t completely original idea, but I don’t know where it came from. I know I either read something, or heard someone talking about something similar to this so if you know who might have beat me to the punch on this please let me know so I can give credit.
