SNGF: Wordle Time


I haven't played with Wordle before, but enjoyed having an excuse to give it a try (even though my husband is asleep in the next room and my daughter is still up, 35 minutes after bedtime).

Above are some of my family surnames. I tried just about every layout, font, and color combination possible before I finally settled on this one.

A little tip for those of you trying Wordle for the first time: if you are using random text, type or save your surnames/text into a document. If you hit "create" or the back button after you start making your Wordle, you risk losing all of your text. Unfortunately, I had to type mine twice before I figured this out (DUH) and saved to a document. Probably for the best because I forgot several names the first time.

For what it's worth, I copied the image using  Ctrl + Alt + Print Screen and pasted it into Photoshop Elements, cropped, then saved as a JPEG.

Now... to get my kid to bed!

What a terrific Wordle. I learned that I am mostly German instead of English based on how big the Brown (really Braun)word got. Love them a lot! You color scheme is much prettier than mine, BTW.

Thanks, Beverly! BTW, where are your Browns from? Mine are from PA > NC > TN (Washington Co.). Cousins? ;-)
