Today, meet new lensmaster and RocketSquid AtlantaGeorgia.
How did you find Squidoo? I had been looking for ways I could make healthier substitutes in my diet. During my pursuit I found a great site about using applesauce when cooking. This site was a Squidoo lens. I had bookmarked it and visited it a few times while I was making my grocery lists and cooking. One day I started exploring more lenses and that’s when I realized I too wanted to share some of my favorite stories, recommendations, etc. I signed up for Squidoo and began thinking about what to write for my first lens.
Of the lenses you’ve made so far, which is your favorite and why? This is tough because I’ve only made a few and each one I learned something new. My lens about one of my favorite beverages, The Scarlet O’ Hara, was a lot of fun to make. It was a RocketSquid challenge and an opportunity to incorporate some of the tips I had been reading about. It was also nice to reminisce about one of my trips to Savannah where I first tried The Scarlet O’ Hara.
What one tip would you give to a new lensmaster starting out? The Squidoo community has a wealth of valuable information. I started focusing on the “3 Habits of Highly Successful Squids.” I was a bit nervous writing my first lens…I was still figuring out my writing style, what I wanted to write about, and how to create a visually appealing lens. Writing my first few lenses were much easier when I just focused on these 3 tips.
If you’re new to Squidoo, with fewer than 25 lenses, apply to join RocketSquids where you’ll find the “3 Habits of Highly Successful Squids” post mentioned above and lots more tips and challenges to help you travel along the road from newbie to Giant Squid. We’d love to have you!
