Wordle - allows you to either input your own text or enter your blog address or any web pages that have RSS feed. The above collage is created using Wordle. After that it will automatically generate the word cloud for you. As easy as 123. The word appearance frequency is affected by the source word density. What's good about wordle is that they allow customization. You can pretty much do anything with the word cloud. Lets say you dont like the looks of it, you can change the font, the colours and even remove the words that you don't want it to be in there.

Tagxedo - Is another word collage which I highly recommend, it works pretty much the same as wordle except that it's better.
It definitely has more functions as compared to Wordle. Plus you can preview the fonts at the drop down list unlike wordle interface. If you want to make shape like this bass cleft, Tagxedo can do it for you. Upload your own shapes or just makes use of the templates they offer and the software will populate the text collage for you.
