I joined Squidoo in July 15 2006 when I was introduced to the concept by another lensmaster. In June 2008, I became a Giant Squid lensmaker with fifty lenses then on October 6, 2008 I joined the Top 100 Club. Most of my lenses fall into the plus size realm but I do explore other areas as well; including movies, books, travel, people, food, and how-to. On April 12, 2010 I became a SquidAngel and delivered blessing to well deserved lenses. On February 3, 2011 the Write Prompts Lens was awarded a spot on Squidoo’s Lens of the Day (LOTD) — a blog highlighting some of the best lenses on Squidoo. I have over 300 lenses that I work on keeping updated.
What is Squidoo? Squidoo is an online community of lensmasters who create lenses on any topic imaginable. There are over 900,000 lenses.
How does it work? Squidoo provides the location on the web and the tools and the lensmaster provides the content and creativity.
How do you make a lens for yourself? By following Squidoo’s step by step process you can make a lens about any topic in about fifteen minutes. Squidoo does all the work in making it pretty and lensmasters provide the content.
Update: August 24, 2014 — After 8 years with Squidoo I have moved the majority of my lens articles to my blogs as the company has merged with another online site. It’s been a tough year of changes I had thought about disconnecting from Squidoo many times. This change made it easier to do it.
