Welcome October, the month when the top half of the world watches the trees change to brilliant yellows, bright oranges, and blazing reds while the bottom half bursts forth with pastel blossoms and fresh green grass. No matter where you live, it’s a new month – time to set some goals and make some lenses.
Lensmaking opportunities abound this month. Our creative questmasters have big plans for October, so watch for plentiful numbers of quest ideas coming your way. Choose your favorites or make a decision to take on a topic that stretches your lensmaking skills. You may learn, as many have, that some of their best lenses were created for quests they hesitated to enter. Now they’re very glad they did.
Watch for new features coming to the site this month, too, including the new product review lens format that will be open to everyone in the very near future. You can see examples of lenses using this awesome new style right here. And don’t forget about the new baby registry button that you can see in action on these lenses.
October’s holidays include one of the biggest of the year, Halloween and, indeed, it’s never too late to start a Halloween lens! It’s also never too early to start a lens for one of the other fall and winter holidays that will be here before we know it. Our Happy Halloween magazine is already hopping and Celebrate isn’t far behind. If you’re not sure how to get your lens featured in one of Squidoo’s magazines, simply refer to the information on this page.
