WEGO HAWMC Day 30: Word Cloud

 HAWMC Day #30: Word Cloud. Make a word cloud or tree with a list of words that come to mind when you think about your blog, health, or interests. Use a thesaurus to make the branches of your “tree” extend further. http://www.wordle.net/
There WILL be an explanation for my sudden disappearance midway through the month from this challenge.  It's a good one and it came on me suddenly.  Not one single thing, but a conglomeration of them.  Next post, I promise.

I had hoped to do a few posts in the meantime, but I guess this is it for this month.  

I cut and pasted a bunch of text and the titles from the five all-time most popular posts from my blog (since 2009 anyway, when Blogger made a big change to the way stats are kept) and this is what I came up with.

 Wordle: April 30, 2012
Click on the picture to see it big. 

These are the five posts, in order of popularity as of right now:

The Twilight Saga books, and the first movie: Not just for teen girls!


Marisol Maldonado "comes out" of the autoimmune closet with husband Rob Thomas' hit song & video "Her Diamonds" - check it out; it's way cool


Fibromyalgia Awareness Day Guest Post by Toni Marshall of The Northern Virginia (NOVA) CFS/ME, FMS, & OI Support Group: Awareness Benefits Me


Long time no blog post...  (no idea why this one made the top five...?)


FINALLY - Sleep Study Results!


I've gotten over being surprised that my post about the Twilight Saga books and movies is my all time #1 most popular (by FAR), and I guess it will be #1 until well after the last movie is released.  

The fact that "sleep" is the biggest word was a surprise to me, but so appropriate!  

Generally speaking, I love my Wordle.  I might have it enlarged and do something creative with it and make a wall hanging out of it.  Someday.

    1. Hi Maggie,

      I considered your offer and took a look at the sample blog posts you linked to, and at the Healthline website that you're representing. I am planning to start blogging regularly on The ICIE again soon, and I'm going to be writing mostly about endometriosis. So I looked to see what they say about endo on your site.

      First, under Causes, retrograde menstruation is mentioned first. I don't believe there is actually any valid research showing that retrograde menstruation is a cause of endo at all. A relatively minor discrepancy considering all of the misinformation out there about endo, so I continued to look at the whole section on endometriosis.

      There were two deal breakers. Under the Complications section the site says that "Impaired fertility is the most serious complication." I don't care what the Mayo Clinic says, if you said impaired fertility is the most serious complication of endometriosis to a room full of women who have actually lived with endo for a year or more, you might just have a riot on your hands. Sure, you mention pain under symptoms but a life of pain is a major complication. It interferes with one's life to the extent that many end up living a life very different than the one they would have lived without endo. PAIN IS THE #1 COMPLICATION OF ENDO.

      So thanks for the offer, but no thanks.
