Make Wordles of Blogs

One of the more frequently requested features has been “Let me just paste the URL of a blog, so I can make a Wordle of the contents.” Because I don’t want to do any fetching or parsing of XML on the Wordle server side, I haven’t been able to implement this. However, our friends at the Google have done all of the hard work for me: The Google AJAX Feed API

So, now, you can enter the URL of anything that either is a feed (RSS or Atom), or has a feed, and Wordle will fetch all of the text it can get right there in your browser, and fire up a Wordle.

Thank you, the Google.

This is a such a great feature! This site is too much fun for a Visual Design like me. Thanks for creating a great tool. I found it via Many Eyes.
