Meet Joan, FitJourney50 on Squidoo. As you might guess from her name, her love is fitness and she’s on a mission to help others get and stay fit, too. We’re very glad she decided to share her passion on Squidoo.
How did you find Squidoo? I had heard of Squidoo but didn’t know much about it until I ran across an article by Seth Godin and looked around his websites. I like that this is a place that combines creativity, social networking, and the opportunity to make money by doing and talking about what you love.
Obviously fitness is your passion, so we know we can expect more fitness lenses. Any other hot topics on your lensmaking list? Yes, fitness is my passion. I am a personal trainer, a runner, a massage therapist, and have a bachelor’s degree in nutrition. I love being able to coach and encourage people to live in a healthful way by educating them on different aspects of exercise and nutrition. So there will definitely be more lenses about these topics. I am also an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, quilter, and photographer. So I already have lenses in mind on these very broad areas of interest as well, with lots of illustrations and photos.
What can Squidoo do for you? I am planning to write a series of eBooks about fitness and health in the not too distant future. I like that Squidoo is helping me learn to organize my thoughts and materials, practice writing, and create a self-contained module of information that is easy to read and understand. I plan on doing more exploring of other lenses, as time permits, to see how different people put their information together. The ability to interact with other lensmakers is a huge benefit of Squidoo and I will be jumping in more and more to communicate with others. I appreciate the opportunity to create and get feedback on what I put out there. Thanks!
