JoanneReid is the “Groovy 60′s” Contributor on Squidoo

joannereidsqTonight we’re pleased to introduce you to JoanneReid. She’s our “Groovy 60′s” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
The 60′s were a time of change in society. A generation emerged in the post World War II era, the post Cold War era, and the message was love.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I used to think that I just thought the 60′s were so interesting because it was an interesting time in my life. Looking back (which is my favorite thing to do) I can see that the 60′s were a volatile and exciting time.

Who had the most influence in your life?
Leonard Cohen always spoke to me. He is a musician but he is also an author. I loved his poetry and his book, Beautiful Losers, as music as his music.

    This should be interesting! Talk about a lot to cover. Can’t wait to see.

    • JoanneReid

      Thank you! So much to cover — so little time. But I am trying to recapture my 60′s attitude where time is irrelevant.

  • RenaissanceWoman2010

    The 60s niche will draw a lot of engagement and interest. Congrats on being our groovy contributor (or, given that it was a volatile decade, perhaps we should have a niche instigator). :-)

    • JoanneReid

      Love it. A Niche Instigator is a great idea.

  • MandeeSears

    Joanne, Congratulations – the 60′s seem like a world away now, but they are one of the most interesting decades, filled with changes – have great memories as a little girl in the 60′s – looking forward to reading your pages, and those who review in your niche as well

    • JoanneReid

      It is a long time ago. The funny thing is until recently, it was like yesterday. I am enjoying taking another long look at it.

  • Ruthi aka abitosunshine

    No doubt this 60s niche is going to be a lot of fun for those of us who spent some growing up years during that time and informative to today’s youth. I cant wait for you to have me feelin’ groovy again, Joanne!

    • JoanneReid

      Thank you! I have been having an urge to find myself a nice granny dress. And maybe tie-dying something.

    Definitely a great period to live. I was in the photographic business which was really really an interesting place to be. Other things: no parking meters or speed cameras as far as I remember!

    • JoanneReid

      And no airline security!

  • Sylvestermouse

    So much happened during the sixties, so many changes. I just know you will have a lot of awesome lenses to share with us.
