This Is Definitely Why You Should Participate In Quests

Before I begin, let me tell you that there’s a lot to see here. In fact there’s 17 lenses listed below that you should make some time to visit over the weekend.

All of the following were sent to us for our recent Why Should I Participate in Squidoo’s Community Quests? quest and let me tell you there were a lot more but I had to draw the line somewhere.

Each of the lenses were created using one of our quest ideas and each of the following is also tribute to the creativity and talent that we see every single day coming in from our lensmasters here at Squidoo.  So, let me take a moment to say, Thank you and keep them coming. You guys are awesome!

Now go. Read. Like I said, there’s a lot to see here.
