The Purple Product Review Of The Day Award

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 3.32.24 PMWe’ve got a new award to share with you today. The Purple Product Review Of The Day Award. The purpose of this award is two fold.

1) We’re seeing so many high quality product reviews (like this) we think they deserve their own recognition.

2) We also have a ton of amazing informational lenses (like this) that we want to show off too.

So here’s our new system.

Lens of the Day will primarily be awarded to traditional lenses however you may see some recipe, how-to and product reviews as LOTD for Club awards. LOTD gets the top spot on the Squidoo home page, the LOTD trophy, 500 SquidPoints and lots of love.

We need your help! Nominate traditional lenses (not product reviews) using this form: We’re looking for high quality lenses with lots of good content.

Product Review Of The Day will feature standout product reviews and will get the Purple Product Review Award, this award will not appear on your winning lens but will instead appear on your trophy page and link to SquidooHQ. There will be no designation on the actual lens. You will also get 300 SquidPoints and a spot on the Squidoo Home page rotation for a limited time. The SquidTeam will choose these lenses based on quality.

We’ll start awarding the new Purple Product Review Of The Day Award tomorrow via a SquidooHQ post.

    I can’t wait. I have been waiting patiently for my first purple star!

  • kinworm

    This is a lovely idea to give great product reviews their own special award while still keeping the LOTD as a very special recognition. Thumbs up :)

  • nancycarol

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I’m always in the market for more awards!

  • d-artist

    Great idea!

  • TanoCalvenoa

    Good! I’d been hoping for an award for the other formats.

  • kehsiberry

    I’m so excited, but usually my lens get locked. I can’t understand why .. frustrating but I guess I thinks it’s the way it goes.

  • pkmcr

    Sounds like a really good way forward and very flattered to see my Doctor Who lens highlighted under number 1 above :-)

  • melaniekaren

  • grammieo

    Cool Idea

    Oh good, because I was about to open a topic about the LOTD in the HQ forum. I found it very strange and not at all in place to see product reviews getting LOTD all the time lately. LOTD should be kept special for lenses with more dept and I’m glad you recognized that too. I hardly ever see an old fashioned quality lens anymore and I was getting somewhat homesick.

    Ah finally, a good move back to what made Squidoo so famous.Great! Thanks for the heads up Bonnie.

  • KathyT

    This is really awesome! What a great idea. Thanks, Bonnie! It also spurred me to make a lens!

  • MarcellaCarlton

    I see…

  • Aesta C

    I have read some really well written reviews here that giving them LOTD would be great.

  • SoundFinance

    good idea!

  • adventuretravelshop

    OK – I haven’t made an old style lens in quite a while but the new style is quite addictive!! To think I was concerned that I wouldn’t have enough things to review! At the moment I have 5 lenses on the go – busy busy busy!! hahaha! Thanks for the info.

  • Sholland10

    Thank you so much for choosing my Soprano’s lens for Review of the Day! I am so excited!! Thank You!! :-D

  • MSchindel

    I’m very grateful for having my review of the Wilton Cake Caddy selected for this purple honor! Many thanks to Bonnie and Robin!

  • Merrci

    Great to see the award and the great lens you included.

  • manlalakbay

    I think by not being active here in Squidoo for so many months turned me into a stranger. I’m not aware of this until I accidentally stumble here. Again, thanks for letting us know. :)

  • chrisilouhoo

    This is a great idea! I’ll be checking out each of the winners’ lenses for tips to improve my own.
