This time out lensmaster kristalulabelle84 has created a fun quest for the Travel and Places category.
The Lensmaking Quest: Create a new lens about a strange or crazy roadside attraction you have visited. This can be an attraction you have already visited and have photos of, or a new attraction this quest inspired you to visit.
Quest Description: Take your readers on a journey to a strange, crazy, and/or unusual sight you discovered at the roadside. Maybe you stumbled across this attraction while taking a cross country vacation, maybe this landmark is located right in your hometown, or maybe this quest will inspire you to hit the open road and go visit a cool place you’ve been meaning to see.
No matter what your inspiration is, be sure to take your readers along for the ride! Make sure your readers feel like they are sitting in your passenger seat by including some really great pictures and fun, yet informative content.
Some questions to answer in your lens to get you started:
-How did you find this attraction?
-What was your first reaction?
-What is the history behind it? Why is it there?
-Where is it located?
The Reward: By completing this quest, you will earn 200 points just for sharing in the fun! At the end of the quest, kristalulabelle84 will choose the Top 10 lenses submitted that are written and presented in an engaging way, that makes the reader, feel like she was on an adventure right along with you. The top lenses chosen will be featured on one of Squidoo’s “Best of Lists” at SquidooHQ for all of Squidoo Land to see and admire.
And of course, great lenses will also receive a Purple Star.
Tips for Making the Top 10:
-Include some really great photos, but be sure you credit them properly, even if you take them yourself.
-Write from YOUR perspective, like you are telling a friend about your great roadside discovery.
-Be original. Choose an attraction that not a lot of people know about.
