You upload the plugin to your server, install it and set options in backoffice, then add the tag cloud widget where you want it to appear on your blog.

Tag cloud plugin for WordPress blogs

There are numerous tag clouds designed for WordPress blogs. If you don’t like the tag cloud I suggest search Google and I am sure you will be able to find one you like. I think this is the best because it is one of the nicest looking tag clouds around, easy to install, and customizable. One thing I don’t like about it is that you cannot control the text size, it is automatically set based on the height and width settings. Tags do automatically update as new posts are written.
