Say hello to Nico, nicoinstitches on Squidoo. She’s only been with us for a couple of weeks, but she’s been staying quite busy. After you’ve read our interview, don’t forget to check out her fast-growing portfolio of lenses.
How did you find Squidoo? I was blogging for another site but did not enjoy it or think it represented my articles well. On my many hours browsing the internet, I found many articles on Squidoo I enjoyed reading. So I switched!
Your lens topics are already far-ranging, from Halloween to nursery rhymes. You mention lots of great interests in your bio, too. Anything special coming up on your lensmaking list? Apart from Squidoo-ing (not to be confuse with the sport), I have an Etsy craft pages (Nicoinstitches) and prize creativity. So my time is split between article writing an crafting. Oddly enough my ideas usually come to me before falling asleep at night. I now sleep with a pen and a pad of paper next to me as my husband gets annoyed if I get up to write articles in the middle of the night! As a military wife, I have just moved from Edmonton, Alberta to Ottawa, Ontario (back to my hometown). It is very nice to be near family again, especially during holidays. My husband and I have just purchased our first house so look for articles on my experience renovating and painting for the first time. Also looking forward to Christmas! It’s my favourite time of year, so the Christmas articles are coming as well.
What can Squidoo do for you? Squidoo is already fabulous! The community is amazing and writing for the site is fun. Perhaps more choice in article layout? I know they have been working on that lately and the small changes they have already made have been great (ex. the product review module). Also, as most writers would say, keep up the good work in advertising. Every little bit helps.
