Today we’re launching a new project called “DIY on Squidoo”

I just created 21 new topics in Home & Garden for DIY and we’ve got a Best of DIY section too.

But first watch this video on YouTube about our DIY launch to get motivated.

Every single person on Squidoo can try a DIY project and have fun with it.

Next, read this lens:

How (and why) to share a DIY project on Squidoo to learn how YOU can participate. There’s some great tips on getting started.

Your Challenge.

I want every single person who reads this post to try a DIY lens. Trust me, it’s fun (and easy). Review a product, share a project, tell us about your favorite DIY book or TV host. Then submit you new DIY lens to the BIG DIY CHALLENGE Quest on your Quest tab. We’ll be compiling a list of our favorites and sharing these on social media. So have fun and challenge yourself.

Got questions? I’ve got answers. Post your questions and feedback below in the comments section of this post.

    Maybe someone can write me a lens on how I can get my Firefox working properly ha ha, just kidding, but I do have major problems with it. I’m too busy with the sheep right now to write new lenses, alas.

  • Anonymous831

    I’m excited about this challenge, I love DIY projects.

  • favored1

    I attempted to use the new format but got stuck on it. Since we can use the regular ones maybe this will work for me. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • KateHon

    OKAY! I have just the DIY project in mind – glad I haven’t gotten to it until now!

    Thank you for this NEW topic. I absolutely LOVE it. Yes, I am shouting for joy. I have always been in a quandry when it comes to classifying my book repair lenses. Now I have a place to permanently park them. In fact, when I saw this announcement, I changed them all to DIY! Again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

    • bdkz

      I’m excited too!

  • TalkingFreebies

    Did I miss this challenge> It isn’t on my quest tab? If so do I turn in the lens here? Thank you!

  • Scottzak

    How can i start my lens and get more visitors?

  • aswaha yah

    good chance, i love DIY things.

  • gem-nitya

    Hi, Bonnie, got time to make my next set of lens. So, want to try as suggested in the quests.
    DIY, as I know is Do it yourself, If we had to Review a product, then do we have to choose products from Amazon only or do we have other options as well.
    If possible can we also write about our hobby or interest?

  • kasman

    This challenge is just what I need to rekindle my interest in DIY!

  • River_Rose
