Mirror Me

a wordle for reluctant renovatorDo you ever use Google to track down your old posts? With years of blogging on a dozen or so sites under my belt, sometimes Google is like a little flash drive that enhances my memory. I recently tried to locate one of my dusty old posts and noticed a site “mirror.me” amongst the results. I wasn’t sure if I’d find my doppleganger or someone scraping my content or what. Instead, I found this cool Wordle-type topic cloud image that you see above.

Mirror.me takes a person’s Twitter stream to show what that person cares (or at least Tweets) about. Not only is it artsy, but on the Mirror Me site, it also links to others who express the same sentiments, so you can meet like minded Tweeps.

I was pretty impressed with @RenovatorKim‘s results, but I could have signed into the site to tweak my results had not been pleased.

I tried it with my older, less renovation-oriented Twitter account.

Mirror Me for Kim Moldofsky

I’d been thinking about creating something like this for my “About” page, but I might have just stumbled upon some new art for my office wall as well.

Cool? Creepy? What do you think?

    Definitely cool, as are the ideas for art and to use them on your about me page. Mind if I borrow that for my about me page? Well with my content of course LOL otherwise it would be about you.

    Kim, I am very glad that you discovered — and liked! — your mirror.me Reflection. Thanks for writing about us to share us with your friends, too!

    Even if you think your Reflection is pretty accurate, you should see if there’s any way you can make it better with the editing tool. You can remove words you dislike or you can adjust the sizes of the words to mirror who you are online.

    Thanks again!
