Word Nerd…in Pieces

As if you don’t already have a zillion time-wasters vying for your attention online, I’d like to introduce to yet one more. Check this out!

Now how cool is that?!

If you’d like to make your own (or piece together one of the oodles of ready-made puzzles on the site), just visit Jigsaw Planet. I made this one a quickie (just 30 pieces) because I assumed that you wouldn't want to dedicate a bunch of your time to putting me back together, but you can create a jigsaw puzzle with anywhere from 4 to 200 pieces in just a few clicks. Upload a photo, choose how many pieces you’d like for it to be, name it, and poof! You can be in pieces, too.

Oh, one more thing. Though the only way I seemed to be able to embed the puzzle into the body of my post was to link it, I could (and will, just for kicks) put a code into the sidebar of my blog and have a playable puzzle right there. I wanted to have the playable version in this post itself, but either it's not possible or I'm not techno-savvy enough to figure out how to properly manipulate the code. Wanna guess which one applies? ;O)


  1. What a great fun idea. Thanks for that, will put the site to good use.

  2. I love puzzles. The Wii has a puzzle feature where you can plug in a memory card and have a photo become a puzzle. I have spent SO much time playing with these puzzles. I have even took a picture of a puzzle and put it together on there. (I'm a tad bit obsessive.)

  3. That is entirely too much fun. Just add it to my list of fun time wasters on the Internet!

  4. I used to visit that site regularly! Virtual jigsaw puzzles are so much tidier and more portable than traditional ones :)

  5. Very interesting and thanks for sharing. Also thanks for the follow! Enjoy your week/weekend!

  6. Very cool. Thanks for turning me on to that!

  7. The little "click" sound it makes is especially gratifying. I am such a dork. I love this stuff.

  8. @mood: If this keeps me off the hard stuff (Bejeweled Blitz and Zuma Blitz), it's a worthy distraction. ;O)

    @Mayzee: I had no idea the Wii could do that! I'll have to check that out. (I am not addicted. I could stop any time I want...) ;O)

    @Paula: Thanks!

    @Kyra: It is (I refuse to grow up...).

    @catchats: There are so many distractions, aren't there?

    @Cthings: Thank you! I hope you have a great week, too. :O)

    @Langley: I'm a deep well of useless information. ;O)

    @mm: Dorks of a feather, I guess. ;O)

  9. @Kyla: Sorry I missed you up there! Yeah, these puzzles are cool--and I don't accidentally drop any pieces on the floor for the dog to snarf up. ;O)

  10. @L.L.: It's just amazing how many cool things there are to do from our desk chairs. (I wonder why my clothes are all getting too tight.) ;O)

  11. I think there's something wrong with my Java. When I try to update it, it errors out. But, it won't show anything but a white screen that identifies you at the top. I'm sure it's fun to do, though. I've done a few of these online, but not with a photo of my choosing.

    Stopping by from the Z to A in May Challenge. You can find me at:

  12. @SJerZGirl: Bummer! You still may be able to browse some of the gazillion they have on their site. ;O)

  13. Oh you have just made my life a little more miserable (fun)...I have been known to waste hours on puzzles of all kinds and now I have another to add to the list. Can't wait to make one of my own.


I'd love to hear what you think. Whether you're reading something that was written two minutes or two years ago, please chime in!
