Introducing eva_writes

Today we are very pleased to introduce eva_writes. You might be surprised to learn that she’s only been on the site for a couple of weeks.  Perhaps you’ve seen her around as she’s already had a Review Lens of the Day and has been very active in the community as well. Don’t forget to check out her lenses – after you’ve read our interview.

How did you find Squidoo? I had been reading Squidoo lenses much before I knew what they were. I can remember f. e. how one day I was searching for a graphic tablet and I found a great review with lots of pictures and examples somewhere: it was very comprehensive, much more than what you would find in any online shop (and I ended up buying that tablet because of the review!). But I was confused when I read in the comments how people were referring to that page as “a lens”. A lens? What was that? Then last year a friend of mine told me that she was a member of Squidoo. She knows I like to write and suggested I try and see if I like it too. Since then I had had it in the back of my mind, though it took me a whole year to gather enough courage to sign up and start writing in English.

You have so many interests and, already, a nice variety of lenses. Anything new coming up on your lensmaking list? I’m aware that my lenses are right now somewhat… diverse. I find it’s too early for me to specialize in one field only, so I’m test-driving all possible subjects and formats. On the one hand, I enjoy writing for the challenges: I like challenges! On the other hand, there are many things I would like to talk about, from vegetarian cooking to attachment parenting, recycling and ecology. And did I tell you that I used to work as an architect? That would make for a few interesting lenses too…

What can Squidoo do for you? Squidoo is already doing many things for me, like for example teaching me to write in a more organized manner (although I am sometimes angry at the scorecard if it doesn’t want to reach 100%!). But despite the rules it is also a lot fun: I love when I see one of those cute monsters saying hello from the corner of my screen. Squidoo has certain advantages if you compare it to having your own blog: not only it’s easier to reach a wide public of readers but it also allows you to diversify your topics, because you don’t have to be faithful to a certain audience. And of course there’s always the possibility of earning a little money with your writing, which is without doubt a great plus!

Susan52 didn't know she wanted to be a Giant Squid when she grew up, but here she is and she couldn't be happier about it! When she isn't doing one thing or another here at Squidoo, you'll probably find her spending time with her family or otherwise appreciating life one precious moment at a time.
