Meet lensmaster and active RocketSquid student Rhettaa, who found her way to Squidoo – twice – and now is growing her lens list by leaps and bounds. Enjoy our interview:
How did you find Squidoo? Back in 2008 I was looking for a place to share some information about websites and crafts for kids. I found Squidoo but then I started a kids’ newsletter and a website instead, which I still have. Back then I was working full-time.
Now I am self-employed and I keep my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. I write for several online sites, some of which pay and some which don’t. I love to share all sorts of things that are interesting to me and with a little more time on my hands I went looking for another place to write and possibly even eventually make a little profit. Money is not the main goal but I like the idea that it is a possible benefit. Squidoo popped up in my search and I was really impressed with the way it is set up now and how easy it is to share so I jumped in.
Of the lens you have made what is your favorite? The Georgia Blues Musicians: Three Atlanta Blues Bands You Should Know lens. I love the local blues scene here in metro Atlanta, and many of the musicians are friends of mine. I am such a huge fan of the three groups I featured and love having a chance to support them whenever I can.
What one tip would you give a new lensmaster just starting out? I just started out myself but my tip would be to join RocketSquids and read some of the tips and then just jump in and play. The site is really easy to use once you get started.
Thanks for the opportunity to share!
Thanks for participating, Rhetta.
