Do You Squidoo?

What is Squidoo you ask?


It is a wonderful site where anybody can create their own "How To" web pages about anything for free!

On Squidoo you create lessons or "lenses" about anything you want to share or teach. You can create a lens about your favorite recipe or even how to change a tire on your car!
You can even create a lens on how to create a Squidoo page!

Squidoo is great because it is a content builder for the search engine machine known as Google. If you want to get found on topics you are excited about, create a Squidoo lens.

I created 3 lenses so far...


To keep track of my latest lenses, I started a list of them right here on my blog roll.

I think it is so fun to learn about all of these great ways to learn, connect and grow.

Do you Squidoo? Please leave me links to yours or your favorite lenses so I can favorite them too!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

I have used Squidoo 21 days ago and unfortunately, i wasn't successful and don't want to give it more time. I earn small and the future of earning more is low.

Hey Melissa,

I've never heard of Squidoo. Sounds pretty neat.

I have a question:

Where, and I mean WHERE in the world do you find time for ALL the ZILLION things you are involved in!

PLEEZE, pretty pleeze send some of your energy out to the Seattle area! :o>

Have a wonderful day,
Joan & Skippy

(I just figured it out: you never sleep!)

Phyllis Dobbs said...

I tried to Squidoo, but just couldn't get the hang of it and gave up. I've been meaning to give it another shot. When I do, I will contact you to get some help with what I'm not getting!

The 3 bears are adorable!

I have looked at Squidoo, but wasn't sure what I should write about or how to proceed. Is it worthwhile? I was thinking about starting up a small home business on the web. Would Squidoo be helpful for me in that way?

Could you tell me a bit about Squidoo and Etsy (I was thinking about checking it out to)?

Thanks and have a great day!!!
