Join In! We’ve Got Lots Of Places To Participate On Squidoo

Screen Shot 2013-12-06 at 2.04.41 PMOne of the most asked questions I get from lensmasters is “How do I get more involved on Squidoo?” That is an awesome question.

We’ve got lots of places on Squidoo that you can connect with other lensmasters, show off your work and get ideas for new lenses.

Our community is huge and we’ve got writers who specialize in many different genres. Books, recipes, travel, adventure, history, art, home decor, crafting, product reviews and more.

So here is a list of places that you can participate on Squidoo and meet new people.

Squidoo Clubs

We’ve got 8 Clubs on Squidoo: a Book Club, Food & Cooking Club, Gardening Club, Craft Club, Pop Culture Club, Vegetarian Club, the Adventure Club and the 2014 Halloween Club.

We offer special quests for each club throughout the year. If you’d like to join a Squidoo Club go to this lens: All About Squidoo Clubs and follow the instructions on joining. Join 1, 2, 3 or all 8 Clubs!

Squidoo Magazines

We’ve got 5 Squidoo Magazines: GoodVegHappy HalloweenCelebrateSo Crafty and Cozy. It’s super easy to participate. Just add your lens to the topic that corresponds with the Magazine. For example: Add your lens to Food & Cooking > Vegetarian & Vegan Recipes for GoodVeg or Arts & Design > Crafting for SoCrafty. The editor (Stephanie) of Squidoo Magazines actively seeks out new lenses to feature on the magazine home pages and the corresponding Facebook pages. Read more about our magazines right here.

What’s Cooking At Squidoo

In celebration of our new recipe format and module we’ve created a Facebook Page called What’s Cooking At Squidoo so that we can show off all of your delicious recipes. So be sure to “Like” us right here: https://www.facebook.com/cookingatsquidoo.

Here is the link to create your own Recipe lens: http://www.squidoo.com/new/recipeformat

The Squidoo Storytellers Daily Challenge

We love personal unique lenses on Squidoo that tell a story and we’ve got a dedicated group of lensmasters who love making product reviews and recipe lenses. So we created  The Squidoo Storytellers Daily Challenge on Facebook. Join us for one new lens idea every day. Participate in the challenges that interest you and share the lenses you create. This is a fun group that starts some super conversations. Join us at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/squidoostorytellers/.

The SquidooHQ Forum

Tom (our Content Quality Editor) runs the HQ forum. There’s lots of opportunity to share, ask questions and participate in great conversations. So stop on by the Forum: http://hq.squidoo.com/forums/ and say “Hi”. 

RocketSquids

RocketSquids is a lensmaking university for promising new lensmasters. It’s a private learning environment run by the official Squidoo team, drawing on our years of observing firsthand what makes new lensmasters great and how we can help. RocketSquids is designed to help you master the basics on Squidoo — by participating in daily lensmaking challenges (you can do as many or as few as you like), reading lessons, getting feedback from our Greeters and meeting other new aspiring writers on Squidoo. Join RocketSquids right here if you have under 25 lenses: https://squidoo.wufoo.com/forms/want-to-join-rocketsquids/

So there you have it! 6 places to start your Squidoo adventures! We can’t wait to meet you.

    Great post – I hope to see some new faces around the HQ Forum =]

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/BarbaraCasey BarbaraCasey

    Nice to see all the options in one place, Bonnie… and it really is the community idea that makes it fun.

    • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/bdkz bdkz

      Thanks Barbara!

    Lots of help to Squidoers thanks guys!

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/SuzyShopping SuzyShopping

    Really useful to have all of these in one place!

    Nice to see it all put together.
    Lots of places to enjoy Squidoo and met its members.

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/marsha32 marsha32

    I’m confused on the craft club. I don’t have the badge, but my lenses are already in the so crafty magazine. Do I still need to fill out the form? I have a lot more than 5 lenses too!

    • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/bdkz bdkz

      I just gave you the badge : )

      • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/marsha32 marsha32

        that was fast! Thanks Bonnie. I went to a new page and it popped down for me.

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/veryirie veryirie

    Lots of choices and opportunities. It’s been quite a while since I visited the Squidoo Forum.

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/RockinPicks RockinPicks

    The Forum is a fantastic place to meet us and we don’t bite. Join right in, ask questions and relax. I could never leave Squidoo because the people on the Forum are friends and very supportive. We love newbies and helping them get their feet wet, so jump right in and say hi. I also belong to all the clubs (Cheesy plug for So Crafty inserted now). Once you join the clubs you can take part in some great contests for prizes. The new formats are just so easy anyone can create a lens. You need no coding experience, only an honest opinion on a product you choose. You don’t need to have your own affiliate id. Squidoo takes care of everything. If you don’t believe you can make money, wait until you find out what happens when the blue box drops. It’s everyone’s favorite day of the month.

    Just wanted to add that you need to be careful about adding your lensmaster name to the application. We can’t add you if we don’t know who you are. If you’ve joined a club and haven’t been added after a couple of days, please try joining again. You might have forgotten to send us your lensmaster name. Thanks!

      upvoted for valuable detail!

  • http://www.squidoo.com/graceonline Kathryn Grace

    The question for me often is, how to get a little lens writing-updating done when there are so many fun ways to connect on Squidoo!

    I’d love to post in the Forums but my notes don’t show up. I think lots of other folks may be having the same problem that I’m having. They would participate in the Forums, they are just unable to.

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/Merrci Merrci

    So nice to have this posted together. Thanks so much!

    Thanks for putting this list together Bonnie. Much easier for new Squids, and old ones too, to find places to be more active.

    I just finished this one for the Squidoo Storytellers daily challenge http://upon-request.squidoo.com/mattie-mandela-messengers-who-changed-the-world It’s becoming my 2nd favorite Squidoo FB group! (Squidoo Positivity is still my #1 ! )

  • http://thatgrrl.ca/ Laura Brown

    It would be nice to have a central list of the groups started by Squidoo members (outside of Squidoo). I have joined a couple. They could use the support from the Squidoo team, and the extra promotion on the site itself. Squidoo Storytellers gets mentioned here and there. How about – https://www.facebook.com/groups/435328299848682/ – The Squidoo Positivity Club

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/aredey aredey

    squidoo is awesome ,i agree on

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/COUNTRYLUTHIER COUNTRYLUTHIER

    Squidspace is limitless in its opportunities to connect. Great job of exposing us to all it has to offer!

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/selfhelpguru selfhelpguru

    Looks like I’ve gotten involved in most of them already. And I don’t qualify for RocketSquids (alas, I discovered them too late…). But I can get a bit more active, of course ;-)

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/hgb282 hgb282

    So much more going on at Squidoo than I realized. Thanks for pointing the way!

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/SheilaMilne SheilaMilne

    I would like to join the Storytellers group but when I click on
    “Read this first!https://www.facebook.com/groups/squidoostorytellers/doc/337440689735172/
    it takes me to a broken link message. I did click on Join Group anyway but I don’t know if that’s sufficient.

  • http://www.squidoo.com/lensmasters/Max_Globe Max_Globe

    I have to say that I’ve enjoyed the Squid Magazines. And I’m glad you mentioned the forum – I haven’t thought of that in quite some time. I’m not terribly active in forums, but see where they can be a very good source of info.
