This week’s Assignment bank goes to Word Cloud. Here are the directions from the DS106 Assignment:
Use a site like http://www.wordle.net/create or similar to create a word cloud. Make your chosen text meaningful to you. Choose a font and color scheme that reflects the emotion behind your choice of words. Take a screenshot, and upload it to your blog.
I ended up using the site WordClouds to create this little gem. I chose to use words that relate to animal abuse and welfare. There is a combination of animals and labels that are associated with animal rights. I was able to choose from a variety of shapes and I felt that the paw print was the most applicable to my purpose of spreading awareness of animal rights and welfare. House pets and zoo animals are not the only that are victims of abuse and neglect. Sometimes animals that can be considered nuisance animals are also wrongfully abused or killed. As was the case for some porcupines that were clubbed to death by teenagers out of sport, these animals were not bothering anyone or anything. I think it is important for people to know what can happen if they abuse or see someone abuse an animal.
Respect the animals around you, if they are not bothering you than leave them alone!
