Does your image match your beliefs?

Every once in awhile I like to make a word cloud of my blog. I posted two in January. The word cloud below was a summary of my entire blog.

Below is today’s creation.

March mindfulness word cloud

This is a quick summary of the most commonly used words on my blog. I love that since January, I can see mindfulness show up as a significant addition. Words like reflection, reading, and learning continue to be areas of importance in my writing.

Similar to when I wrote about my most used emoticons, I like to use word clouds as a way to self-monitor- to check in that my blog posts are focused on the leadership and learning topics I find most important and valuable. I use blogging as a reflection tool. If what I’m writing about does not match my beliefs, there is a significant disconnect. These check-ins help me see the connections between my writing and my beliefs in summary form.

  • What would your word cloud say about you?
  • Would your blog (or website or site plan)’s word cloud match your beliefs? 
  • What are you most used emoticons lately?
