Today we are pleased to formally introduce susan-zutautas. She’s quite active on Squidoo, including RocketSquids, so she may not be a stranger to you. Now it’s time to get to know her better.
How did you find Squidoo? For almost the past three years I’d been writing articles at HubPages. When my sister in law Christy_ Rose started writing on Squidoo she kept telling me what a great site Squidoo was, how friendly & supportive the writers were, and she encouraged me to join. Actually she hounded me almost on a daily basis. I wrote my first lens and got a feel for the site. After a few days I was totally hooked. I guess one would now call me a squidaholic.
You say that writing and cooking are two of your passions, so it’s not surprising to see all of your yummy recipe lenses – plus a few others. Anything new coming up on your lensmaking list? I’m not really a niche type writer. I enjoy writing about health issues that I have experienced myself or have seen family members go through. Having a love for animals I enjoy writing about my dogs, and may write a few lenses about them or recipes that I’ve come up with for healthy dog treats. With Christmas coming soon I hope to write about the festive season.
What can Squidoo do for you? Squidoo has already done so much for me already. When I first started writing online six years ago I never in my wildest imagination thought that people would be interested in anything that I had to say or write about. For the past year or so my faith in myself as an online writer has slowly weakened. Up until about five weeks ago I was ready to throw in the towel and quit writing online all together. Squidoo has restored the passion within me to continue writing.
