Blogger's Block

I have restarted this post so many times....I really can't figure out what to post about and in all honesty I should be working on report cards instead of blogging:-)  Anyway have you heard of Tagxedo?  I love wordle....but this is a whole new level.  Tagxedo does shapes.  So for the end of the year, I made this:  (I just copied and pasted a class list into tagxedo).
Last week, I had my Chickadees write one word describing each person in the class.  Then I typed all the words for each student into tagxedo and printed them.  So they each have a personalized Chickadee:-) I left them black and white, since we don't have color printers.
All the words Alexa's friends used to describe her.
And a technical question:
Does anyone know how to make an image "clickable"  For example linky buttons.  I want to be able put a linky image in a blog post that people click on, instead of putting a link under the party image.  Help please:-)


  1. I don't think I've heard of Tagxedo before! That sounds very neat to use! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. That sounds like a great site. I think I know what you're asking. Maybe? If I want a picture to be a link, I click on the picture, then click on the "link" option. It's the same one I'd click on If I want to make words linkable. Add the link just like you would for words. If I totally misunderstood your question, please ignore me! :)

  3. Thanks Laurie, I'm following you too!

    I love Tagxedo, I have used it the last 2 years for my Mother's Day presents, but I really like your idea. I may do that next year.

  4. This is awesome! Can't wait to try it!
    I click the pic or the image and then hit link. It never works the first time so I always have to click the pic again and then hit link again. And that's all. ;)

  5. I am so excited for this! Thanks for sharing!! I've had that same question, but never put it to words...I'm going to try making a picture link on my next post!
