Lens Writing is only Half the Success
There are so many ways that success can be achieved at Squidoo and I bet you have only touched on half of them, if that.
This is a message from a kitty angel who wants only the best things to happen to you. It is a message of love and peace and making friends among your Squidoo buddies, It's about hugs and kisses, don't you just love them, and all things nice. Meow, a little pat please or a scratch under the chin will make me puuuurrrrrrrrrrr. Thank you, I enjoyed that.
Some friends are visiting but not leaving a rating. Please leave your love behind so I can remember you. purrrrr
Kittens, don't you Love Us
Don't You Feel the Love Here?
Kittens are perhaps the best example of love and great pleasurable feelings you can imagine. That's why this kitten wants you to know that by being loving and cuddly, cute that is, you will win more friends and create a better niche for yourself than otherwise.
But kittens are also skittish. That is why we run and hide when something frightens us, such as a loud voice, anger, bullying or just plain rudeness. So if you want us to love you then please be loving in return. Gentle, kind and considerate and lots of hugs will win us over. We know it's a jungle out there but you don't have to treat Squidoo like that. This is a very friendly place and we love it here. besides everyone is doing their best and no one spreads hatred around unless they are hateful persons. We kittens don't take to that kind of person.
If you want to scream, rant, rave and get on people's (kittens) nerves then do it some place else. Here we have our snoozes sometimes, play at other times, engage with each other, boost up each others morale and generally lead a very happy life. We get rewards and treats for good behaviour as well. So watch your manners folks and come play with us as often as you ike.

Expecting Love In Return
We All Need to Sleep
When we work and play hard, such as by building lenses, responding to squids and being helpful and loving all day we have to sleep. Sometimes we might forget to come back for the next round but don't despair we have not left home.
If you think that we should have been around checking out your latest LOTD or looking at a new site you have just published be patient. You might not get an answer for some time. Besides that we have to eat, hunt, do our housework and, of course, wash our coats. Yuk, all that licking. This all takes time and then we don't always feel so sociable anymore.
Beside how much socialising have you done lately? Have you been visiting other squids work? You must you know if you want people to visit yours. Leave some comments so they know you are interested in them. Rate their lenses and help them out when they need it. That's how we spread our love around. Always respond to those who have left comments as well. That's just plain courtesy.
How Many Hours a Day Do You Sleep
Or are you too addicted to Squidoo that you often pass on it?
When You Least Expect It
We will jump out at you and take you by surprise. Do you know how many giant cats there are in Squidoo, how many of us angel cats? And then there are the lions at the top of the ladder (domesticated, friendly, gentle and playful, of course, but BIG). Everyone is looking at you - and of course your lenses.
You will quickly get told if they are not up to scratch (excuse the pun but I have claws). We will claw our way through any lens and tear it to pieces to let you know if it is good or bad. But we do it in a nice friendly way, of course. We are full of love, hope and great expectations. Match us in temperament and love and you will do fine.
How Much Help Do You Expect?
Do you ask giant squids for help sometimes?
Finding our Way Around
Sharing and Caring
You see the way we kittens groom each other and play together nicely. Well I have a challenge for you. How would you like to join with us in featuring and favouring lenses? You can see how busy I am building this lens for you.
If you would like to play this game you will need to put links below of lenses on which you feature those of other squids. Its just a case of you washing someone else's back and they wash yours. What do you get from it? BACKLINKS, MORE VISITORS and BETTER RATINGS, especially in the SE's (search engines for the newbies).
For every lens you feature you get backlinks to every lens, web site, email and article that links to that particular lens. Its like building a great big web but you also get other things as well. The opportunity to REPUBLISH YOUR LENSES is a real bonus. Every time you put in someone's link you have to republish for it to show up. That way your lens stays fresh.
Email them of course to let them know you have done this and they will probably at least visit the lens and hopefully leave a comment for another boost to your ego. If they don't have an email activated in their bio give them a prompt to do so as you want to feature their lenses and have to let them know when you do this.
Every time you refresh a lens by republishing it you can send a Squidcast. That results in more visitors, comments and higher ratings. It also gives you a chance to refresh your lens, just like washing your back, well someone else washing it, and helping you to smell good. If you have watched the videos you see how we do this for each other.
You also get a chance to ping the lens and, thereby, receive more visitors and send it higher in SE rankings, So how about it, will you join our little group? If so just put your lenses on the plexo below and I will be in touch asap. But make sure it has links to other squids lenses and not just your own. You might even get a badge to put on them - that is being looked into right now. Each lens must feature at least 3 lenses by other squids (besides your lenses) to qualify.
One other thing if you are going to do this you should join as many fan clubs of other squids as you can manage and encourage those squids to join yours. That way the Squidcast will get lots of readers and responders and every squidcast is a backlink as well. This exercise is all about ratings, ranking and backlinks, and of course being a nice kitty.
