Meet tammywilliams09, who has recently extended her article writing career to include Squidoo – and we’re thrilled to have her. You may have seen her around, but we thought you’d like to learn a little more about her.
How did you find Squidoo? I wanted to expand my creative skill set so I searched online and took a writing course on Udemy in February 2013. My tutor encouraged me to join EzineArticles so that I could practice writing. I submitted my first article in March and feel great that my work was published. Shortly after, I was asked to be a guest writer by publishing Career articles to WiseWolf Taking. However, I wanted some help in improving my writing skills and to interact more frequently with other writers. I searched online and came across guides and lens instructing new lensmasters how to write lens for Squidoo. I read a variety of lens and love the content and layout so I joined Squidoo in July.
You have a nice, eclectic selection of lenses so far. Are there any “hot topics” that we can look forward to down the road? Lensmasters are always encouraged to create lenses based on their own experiences and passions. I love fruits so in my first lens I challenged myself to find out the typical uses and references made about fruit. I also love watching cartoons on Disney channel, own a Samsung Galaxy Europa and wear glasses so I used those experiences for my previous lenses. I am not sure what my next topic will be about but I plan to examine my life more thoroughly and share information that will be beneficial to everyone.
What can Squidoo do for you? I am glad that Squidoo uses SquidGaming because I love participating in polls, quizzes, liking and commenting on lens. I am always extremely pleased when I see my level and trophy count increasing. I am hoping that it will encourage me to stay motivated to read and write more lenses. I also joined RocketSquids so that I could participate in Quests and receive feedback on my lens. So far I have only participated in a few lens creation quests but I am hoping that the quests topics will help me to think for creatively about my everyday life. I am sure once I get more practice and inspiration it would make learning and contributing even more fun.
