Squidoo LOTD Lenses

Updated on February 9, 2018

Standout Lenses

During my lens building at Squidoo it has always been a pleasure to visit and rate other people's lenses. By so doing they have taught me to be better, to aim higher, to create more stories and to write so that others enjoy the read. Of course, the best lenses are those that make Lens of the Day, and they are featured below. If you have one not listed here add it to the plexo.

When anyone visits another person's lens and takes the time to help that lens master do better to make their lens shine then it allows another kind of thrill. It also builds a team of which everyone in here is a part. It creates passion and friendship follows. There is also a bonding with others that grows over time as you build more lenses, meet more people, gain more confidence and become ever more enthusiastic.

This lens is a tribute to Squidoo for allowing this to happen and also a pat on the back for those whose lenses have been granted extra awards through their work.

It now sports a Purple Star - thank you Robyn and Bonnie.

When The Passion Flows

The rewards soon follow

Something important may suddenly happen around you that is worth talking about, or there is a tourist event or a movie, concert or book that strikes you in the right place. Perhaps it is your family, your own skills or what strikes you as amusing .

Whatever it is you just have to write about it and the words pour out in a frenzy as you record your thoughts and add some input from elsewhere. Photos, videos or snippets of citation all help to add the passion and stimulate the flow.

Make it Shine, Make it Shine,

Build a lens and make it shine,

Do it well to withstand time,

Say something that will stop them dead

Word it better so they know what's said

Color it for interest sake

Don't rush it through but take a break

Come back when in a better mind

To critique it and mistakes to find

Change modules to be in the right place

Something about you to show your face

Then the guestbook, don't leave it blank

And those who come you must thank

Give them a parting gift or two

So back they will come to visit you.

I thought that they only gave it to really great lensmasters so it goes to show that anyone can make it. It is going to take me a long time to enjoy all the lenses you have shared here. Angel blessed.

      Great lens! Blessed! Maybe I will be part of your LOTD story someday, still waiting for my first. Thanks for the comments on my Desert Storm lens, I really appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment. I have had it all bottled up in myself for 20 years, not all good memories...but it helped to finally get it all out in a lens and to share it with others. The support has been overwhelming but i have to say, yours has been the best comment so far, thank you. In the meantime, I am blessing this lens! Have a great week!

      I really enjoyed your lens, I got a little distracted by other lenses that you mentioned and kept going to have a look at them, but I think what you said at the top of the page is very important, for two reasons, (you are congratulating the person for the effort they have put in a really nice thing to do) and the second reason as was pointed out to me by my sister who is not a member of Squidoo, her words were( if all of these people think that it is interesting I am going to make sure I read it) now she has only just begun to read things on Squidoo, and is thoroughly, enjoying the experience
