Get New Ideas
Each week, our sitewide challenges provide you with several unique lensmaking ideas to inspire you and spark your imagination. With each idea we offer, we always invite you to get creative with the topic. Many of our more experienced lensmasters will tell you that some of their best lenses were created in response to a quest simply because it forced them to think outside of the box. So, with each new idea we provide, before turning it down as something you’re not interested in, we ask you to put on your thinking cap for a little while and you just might surprise yourself with a unique new idea.
Get Some Inside Traffic
When you post the link to your new lens in the comments at a quest challenge, it puts your work in front of the entire Squidoo community. If fellow lensmasters enjoy reading your page, they might leave you a Squidlike, a nice comment or even help you get the word out about it via social media.
Of course to get real traffic to your page, you’ll need to create UUU lenses and then do some sharing of your own outside of Squidoo but our challenge posts are a great first place to show off your newly published work.
Learn From Others
Visiting the lenses shared by others at our community quests is a great way to learn how to become a more successful lensmaster yourself. You can see the creative ways other lensmasters are responding to the topic and also all of the different techniques they use when building their own lenses.
Quest participation is also a great way to put your work front and center where your community leaders can easily find it. These are the people who choose lenses for our Best Of categories, Spotlight Posts at HQ and also for the exclusive Lens of the Day spot found at the top of our home page each day.
- To complete this challenge we invite you to visit the Lens Challenge tab located at the top of the page at SquidooHQ. Here’s a quick link to it.
- Choose one of our previous quests and complete it by creating a new lens for the topic before midnight on July 31st.
- When your lens is finished, stop back here and share the link in the comments below.
- After the deadline, we’ll feature a bunch of the lenses we receive in a special post right here at SquidooHQ.
If you’ve already completed all of the quests that you found interesting, you are more than welcome to participate again by creating another new lens for any of the topics there.
We can’t wait to see what you build!
