Introducing Jen09_writes

Lensmaster jen09 writes on SquidooToday we’re pleased to introduce lensmaster and RocketSquid student jen09_writes. Here’s our interview:

How did you find Squidoo? As a stay at home mom I was looking for some ways to make a little bit of extra money while still staying home. I have always had a passion for writing and so I started looking into that a bit. While I was mostly looking for information about blogging, I somehow came across a website that mentioned how great Squidoo is and I thought, “That would be an awesome starting point”. I really liked the community aspect and thought I should join to get my feet wet with writing and make a little extra money as well.

Of the lenses you’ve made so far, which is your favorite and why? That’s a tough one. Obviously I like all of them or I wouldn’t have written them :-) In all seriousness though, my personal favorite would probably be “Top Five Reasons To Be a Stay at Home Parent“. I like this one because I think it has the potential to encourage others to do their best to stay at home with their children, and it also motivates me on days that I am overwhelmed and wondering if I am doing the right thing by staying home.

What one tip would you give to a new lensmaster starting out? Obviously I am still new to Squidoo and need a lot of tips myself, but if I were to give a new lensmaster a tip it would be this: READ THE FORUMS. I have learned so much about writing, SEO, formatting, and more simply by reading what others have learned the hard way. I absolutely love looking at the lens’ others are writing and I like receiving criticism on my own work. If you want to become a successful lensmaster, be sure you read the forums.

Many thanks to Jennifer for participating and to you for reading our interview. Don’t forget to visit Jen’s profile page to check out her favorite lens and see what else she’s been writing about.

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.

    Great tip, Jen! The forum as well as Squidoo HG is the best place to learn what we need to do to create and publish our best work on Squidoo.

    Welcome, jen09_writes. I believe I’d visited your lens previously, the one on staying at home with kids. But then, like today, I’ve reached my like limit.
