Resource: Tagul For Gorgeous Tag Clouds


At GeneaBloggers we’re always looking for new ways to help you display information on your blog including tags and labels.  While there are many built-in gadgets and widgets to display the data in a “cloud” format, a new program called Tagul actually takes the process up another notch.

For now, Tagul is free and you simply sign up, link to your blog, select the cloud shape, color, font etc.  And when you are finished you get the code to drop into a HTML/text widget or gadget in your sidebar.  The final result looks like this:

GeneaBloggers Tag Cloud

You can also have the cloud update every 12 or 24 hours if you post frequently.  Check out Tagul when you have a chance and see what kind of tag cloud you can create!

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy.

His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.

  1. That looks cool! Gonna head there and make myself a new ‘cloud.’ What was that old 60’s song? Or was it 70’s? “Hey, Hee, Get offa my cloud!” Bet you weren’t even alive then, Thomas…. Have a blessed weekend!

  2. Very pretty, but doesn’t work well scrunched into a sidebar. I switched back to WordPress’ default tag cloud after playing a bit.
