Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Day 30 #HAWMC: Word Cloud

  • 30 April 2012

It’s Day 30 of the WEGO Health Activist Writer’s Month, in which participants are directed to write each day about a health issue. 

Today’s Prompt: Word Cloud

A picture is worth a thousand words.  For today’s post we’re going one further and putting your words into an image, a word cloud or tree representing YOUR health focus, interest, or passions.  Write down some of your favorite topics off the top of your head or review the tags in your blog post for some surprises.


This exercise has sparked my imagination in ways I never expected. Just creating posters, pictorials and infographics proved to be enlightening assignments. I’ll miss the creativity of each daily prompt, but not the pressure of presenting a fresh, original post each morning. Like fellow bloggess Marie, I will welcome resuming  the familiar schedule of my day. I thank my fellow WEGO challenge bloggers without whom I couldn’t have completed this exercise: Marie, Renn and Yvonne. Congratulations to them for having the courage and fortitude not only to take up the gauntlet, but to complete the challenge in its entirety.

    You did it! We did it :-) Congratulations on making it through your commitment to health activist writing Jan for a whole month. I am proud of you and the other blogesses. It’s been fun to learn new things about you. Maybe we should send aside a day to be creative each month on our collective blogs 😉

  • Renn

    Jan, I really like your word cloud! You put some fun things on there. (I grabbed tag headlines from my blog.) I liked using this format though, and will use it again in the future! I agree with Marie, I’m proud of all of us for completing the challenge. Setting aside a day a month to be creative like this is a great idea!

    We DID do it! Congratulations to you, too, Marie, and to the other bloggesses who met the challenge. I love the idea of setting aside a day each month with a creative prompt for us participants to tackle. What day should we choose? Thanks for all your encouraging comments. Write on! xxx

    Thanks for your feedback on my word cloud, Renn. I agree that the format of this image creator rocks. We should all be proud of ourselves for meeting the WEGO monthly goal. I’m glad it took place during a month when I still had some “free” time. We definitely should follow up on the once-a-month idea. I appreciate so much all your comments on my blog through this challenge. You’ve been a great supporter, Renn, and I’m grateful. xx

  • Catherine

    A blog post a day – geez, you are a trooper! Congratulations on finishing this great challenge. I’ve really enjoyed following your results and look forward to more posts.

    It was quite the challenge, Catherine, believe me! Thanks so much for your encouraging words and for following my posts. I’ve found a wonderfully supportive community through blogging, one I never imagined when starting this venture. xxx

  • Nancy’s Point

    Well done, Jan. Well done all of you! I’m very impressed.

    Love your word cloud too!

  • jhasak

    It was quite the challenge, Nancy, but we did it! Somehow! Creating the word cloud proved a fun exercise with which to end the month. Thanks for your encouraging comment. xx

  • Kathi

    Jan, you have my undying admiration for doing this — and doing it so beautifully. And it has been such fun that Marie, Renn & Yvonne were part of the team. It’s been great fun for us all. xoxo

  • jhasak

    Kathi, I appreciate your encouraging words; they mean more to me than you’ll ever know. It was great fun that we four could work as a team and be accountability partners throughout the whole month. I’m missing the challenge already. Now I have to come up with my own prompts, lol. Thanks for all YOUR wonderful posts. xxx
