Tag Cloud

Tired of seeing long label or topic in your blog? Why not try Tag cloud?

A tag cloud uses weighted list in visual presentation or design. It is a visual depiction of user-generated tags and if you are using it to replace general listing Tags, you will get something like the picture above.

The frequent the topic or tag appears, the bigger is the tag. I personally find it useful as it visually attract readers but most of all, it save quite a lot of white space.

You can head down to Here for a simple steps to setup in your blog. Some customization can be done if you are familiar with CSS. If you are not, the basic already look good enough.

I however did not use this however due to the incompatibility of my current blog template to the tag cloud widget.

If you use it, let me know if it is useful to you.

I see this in many blogs but have never been able to understand its value.

It pretty simple. The more entry tie to the Tag, the bigger the wording. So at one glace, readers will now which is a hot Tag.
