Wordle of Text from LDSMediaTalk

I just created a wordle of the text from all the blogs during 2008 on LDSMediaTalk. (Click on the image to see a larger version.) It’s interesting to look at these wordles to get a sense of how often certain topics are mentioned in a given text. See a wordle of the text from the last general conference.

    If I might ask, how did you pull all of the text from your blog posts from 2008? Did you go one by one, or is there a quicker way?

    I just highlighted all the text on the page (about 10 posts per page), and did that for all the pages for the year. I then deleted words like “larry,” “richman,” “comment,” etc that were repeated on each post as part of the formatting. It was a bit of a hassle, but not too bad.
