WordPress Release Word Clouds

Tell your friends!

Yesterday, I published the 12th in an ongoing series of blog posts since December 26, 2005, where I take my own look at major WordPress releases and write a hopefully helpful article about features. It’s the routine, and now expected, “10 Things You Need to Know” posts.

Out of morbid curiosity, I decided to run all of those posts through a word cloud generator and see if there were any trends that could be seen. Of course, it’s my writing so there are obvious tendencies and biases, but it was fun to see anyway.

One thing I did to make the results better… I removed the words WordPress and WP. Also, several of the posts had my name in it so I figured it would be better not to include that either.

    interesting take. From the clouds, one would say that 2.5, 2.6 and 3.2 are less interesting releases :)

    That is a pretty cool representation of each major release over the years.

    T-shirts, anyone? :)
