Deyani's Squidoo Journey
Hello all, please let me introduce myself, I'm Mulyani, but I prefer to be called "Noni" - a Squidoo lensmaster since October 2010.
I read about Squidoo on a forum when I was trying to find tips to improve the traffic for my websites. I thought Squidoo looks fun and decided to give it a go.
Now I can say that it was one of the best decision of my life. I'm enjoying Squidoo so much, my husband now need to fight for my attention. :)
In this lensography, you can find a bit more about me and also lists of my Squidoo lenses.
My background is Information System; database, website development & design and stuff. I love it and I worked in an IT industry for five years before I finally decided to be a housewife and started to work from home & earn money through online stuffs. I currently live in Sydney.
Online Money Making
I've done many paid surveys and paid-to-click sites. Fortunately, I was able to avoid the "trap" and always getting my payment from them. I'm still doing the paid surveys and I enjoy them. Moreover, I also sell clothes, bags and 2nd hand console games on eBay. Last year, I discovered Amazon Affiliate & Google Ad sense program so I built 2 websites and am still learning how to improve my amazon and ad sense earnings.
I love cooking, but I honestly admit I'm not that great cook. :-) Thankfully my husband always eats my food even though sometimes it's tasteless or too salty. I love my husband :-)
I am a winnie the pooh collector, and I hope that one day I can have a winnie the pooh store selling winnie the pooh products.
During my spare time, I love hunting for bargains. Especially if it's an accommodation or travel deals. I love the adrenaline rush when we only have less than 1 minute to secure the deal.
Photography, my husband & I have short-term goal of opening our own outdoor photography business as well as designing inspirational posters & videos. So we are on our photography journey, day by day we try to take different pictures from different photography topic to improve our photography skills. You can browse the pictures we took at deyani flickr website.
My husband & I love gadgets. Nope, we don't own every single gadget that's available on the market, but we love reading reviews and try them on the store. Honestly, I prefer to go to the electronic stores rather than clothing / shoes stores. It's been a while since I bought a new dress, I think it was almost 6 months ago.
I'm also a big fan of Korean Drama & Korean TV Show. At the end of my hectic day, I find it refreshing to end the day by watching a romantic-comedy or funny reality show.
My Squidoo Journey
I joined Squidoo on 25 October 2010 and as of June 2011, I've published 97 lenses, reached level 63 and 27 trophies.
My first lens is Tips for Bargain Hunter based on my own personal experience of bargain hunting.
I received my first Squidoo payment on 12 January 2011.
On December 13th, 2010, My Kris Kringle Gift Ideas lens made it to the top 100 in Shopping Category. It's a day to remember!
On December 15th, 2010, I finally reached level 50. I've passed another Squidoo milestone!
I published my 50th lenses on December 23rd, 2010! And it's a very special lens: Precious Moments Love Figurine. I can already feel that love is in the air. :-)
On January 11th, 2011; I've got my angel wing :-) I'm honored to be Photography Neighborhood Angel.
On July 1, 2011; I am a proud Giant Squid. Prior to submitting my Giant Squid application, I re-worked most of my lenses and I found out that 90% of my lenses' quality were below par. I will never stop to re-work my lenses until I am accepted to the 100 Giant Squid Club.
And on July 3, 2011; my lens how to capture amazing firework pictures was awarded Lens of the Day.
