Weekly Wordle: 7 of 52


You know how carried away I get with these Wordles.... Well, I *have* to point out the wonderful 'Chocolate lightbulb involves friends' in the bottom corner, but apart from that I'm going to be very good and restrained and share just two little combos from the top right*

The first is 'votes wanting', which, yes - is a good description of me at the moment! I'm aware that the voting process is open for quite a while (till the end of February), and that people can vote once a day, so I do feel like I'm talking about it a lot and I'm sorry for that. I have tried to vary my requests but I'm aware that, basically, I'm begging for votes every day. I quite understand if this is getting annoying. I'm doing it partly because a couple of people kindly said they'd like to vote every day but might forget, so could I please remind them? And partly because I'm very excited and touched to see that I'm about 5th in the overall rankings, so may have a chance of a runners-up prize, but there are a few of us quite close together so your vote really does make a difference. (And here's the link!)

And so the other combination is 'wanting two thank', because I am, whole-heartedly, wanting to thank every one of you who has voted for me at all. Even if I don't win a prize from this, I am so touched to see the support I've been given. It has done wonders for my self-esteem and reminds me once again how fortunate I am to be a part of such a lovely blogging community. OK, this is starting to sound like a bad acceptance speech at the Oscars (*sniff!* *sob!*) but I want you to know that I am sincerely grateful to you xx

*OK, I now feel the need to lighten the mood a little, so I shall share just one more! Did you spot the big 'day' with the little 'mad' tucked inside?! A good description of most of my days, I think....

The first thing I spotted was 'Kate's Fruity'. So, who's Kate and is that something she would want the world to know? :)

hi mel,
you have to make your wordle and then you open it in the new window bit. make sure your wordle has a black background and brighter word colours than your paper in photoshop. take a screen photo so you get the image on the photo clipboard. then on your LO you add it to the layer above your background as a new layer. then drag the image out until it is the correct size and do the clicky bits. next you have to go to your wordle layer and at the top of the layers section section change the ''normal'' word to''screen''. This deletes the black background from the wordle and then leaves just the words. You can alter the opacity down to get the background you like. Jessica S uses it in her Type and writer class.
Hope this helps.
