Wow, I can still make a lens!
I'm sitting in a class right now, but I was curious about whether I could still make a lens for the last time.
Since I succeeded in doing it, I'll leave the comment module open for anybody who wants to say anything.

My thoughts about Squidoo's demise
OK, I don't know anything about big business, but I always wondered whether the staff that Squidoo had was too small to be able to do good quality control over such a huge number of users and lenses.
I would be interested to hear other people's thoughts about this. Or anything else about the end of Squidoo that you don't mind saying in public.
What are your feelings right now?
What's your emotional reaction right now to the end of Squidoo?
Why I started on Squidoo
Actually, I was inspired by something Seth Godin said: "Everyone is an expert on something." I questioned in my mind whether I agreed with that, and I realized that I really was an expert on something -- gospel choir directing. Next thing I knew, I was writing my first lens.
What I got out of Squidoo
It inspired me to write and share. I wrote lots of choir articles, I wrote fiction, I wrote some off-the-wall musings, and I did some (really good and helpful) curation.
And the biggest thing Squidoo inspired was my business, ChoirParts.com. I can only be grateful for that.
Where my content is going
I've started a separate area on my business website for the choir directing articles. My more personal writings will go on my old personal blog. Pop music writings will go on my little-used music blog. And for the product-oriented things that have some goo writing in them, I started a new "shopping" blog.
I got a total of 80 points for starting this lens, adding an intro picture, and publishing it.
I wonder what level I'm at now.
As I recall, I almost made it to Level 80.
