Meet RocketSquid MaggieMoo12, one of our many lensmasters from Australia. Here’s what we learned about her in our interview:
How did you find Squidoo? I heard about Squidoo I couple of years ago when I was trying to get my business website to rank better on Google. I bought an affiliate marketing training course from Sarah Young. She was using Squidoo as a platform to make money without spending any. Although I learnt a lot from Sarah and had big plans at the time I didn’t really take it any further. Then, recently when I bought my Tablet I downloaded a book called “Five Bucks a Day Revisited” by Denis Becker he mentioned Squidoo again and it got me curious so I had a look and the rest is history. I didn’t want the effort that goes with my own website or blog but I was looking for an outlet for my ramblings that wasn’t work and Squidoo is perfect for that. The is a supportive vibe about it that suits me down to the ground.
Of the lenses you’ve made so far, which is your favorite and why? The lens that is my favorite is “Hello Gorgeous” it’s about a dahlia in my garden that’s called you guessed it – Hello Gorgeous. I did it as a result of a challenge to write about something red. It was one of my first lenes and it is the lens that came easiest for me. It took me next to no time to write, that plant makes me happy and I hope reading about it makes others smile as well.
What one tip would you give to a new lensmaster starting out? First thing is to not use Internet Explorer. I spent days trying to figure out why I couldn’t save my work when I used one of the Recipe Lens format and was just about to totally pack it all in. Then for some reason I logged on using Google Chrome – problem solved. The other tip I have is to not think it’s hard or complicated just start – work it out as you go along. I’ve had one lens blocked, which I wrote for the something round challenge, that made me feel so disappointed at first but now I don’t care, I’ll fix it up and re publish it one day. I have had others selected for best of Squidoo which is really satisfying and I made 32 cents last month woo hoo!
