Meet Anja, aka darkflowers on Squidoo. She’s another of our growing group of lensmasters from the Netherlands – and another who signed up with Squidoo then took a couple of years to actually get started. We’re glad she found us again! Enjoy our interview.
How did you find Squidoo? I found Squidoo in 2011 through another Lensmaster that was promoting his Lenses. I bookmarked the main page and registred myself. Then I wrote a few Lenses and lost interest. So stupid! A few months ago I returned and I’m addicted now! I enjoy writing Lenses and being active in the Squidoo community!
You write a lot about health and happiness and overcoming fear. What’s next on your lensmaking list? Next on my list is a Lens about healing from childhood trauma. That’s a topic I love to write about. There are so many people suffering from this and you can heal it. I did it myself and I love to give people useful information so they can do it to. Making people happy is one of my missions! Because I’m a member of the Rocket Squids there will be challenges I participate in too. And I will be writing more about spirituality and paranormal phenomena!
What can Squidoo do for you? I love Squidoo so much. The community is great, especially the forums. I want to keep on becoming a better writer and improve my English (I’m Dutch). I love to help out others wherever and whenever possible. That is the beauty of Squidoo, you give back what others taught you before to people who are new!
It is nice I get the opportunity to earn money too, but that is not the most important thing here: Squidoo is a great platform where I get webpages for free and wonderful support from other active Lensmasters. I want to grow here in every way possible. Hopefully there will be more challenges and perhaps writing contests (?) in the future. It is great to write about what I love but I love it too when I am challenged to leave my comfort zone This improves my writing skills and tickles my creative skills to make something beautiful of everything I write about!
