Blibahblubah Tag Cloud

Description

Blibahblubah Tag Cloud is a plugin that allows the blog owner to customize the tag cloud so that
any reader mousing over the tag cloud will see the words in the tag cloud flicker with
a customizable effect. This is just a fancy bell and whistle to add to your blog.

You can adjust the font growth, the highlight color, the font decoration (bold, underline,
italic, etc.), and bordering options.
