How I Stumbled Onto Squidoo
I Stumbled Onto Squidoo Accidently
Posted 4-13-2012 Got my new Squidoo T-shirt. I have been a member over 4 years and still having fun, making some money and creating some cool lenses. I went Giant awhile back and have over 100 lenses. I hope you will look at some of my other creations as well.
I stumbled onto Squidoo similar to the way I stumbled onto Kimberly Dawn's post on Squid Blog, "How Did You Find Out About Squidoo". So, here it goes.
It was by being curious. For years I have loved surfing the Internet and it was through surfing, that I stumbled across this great organization. I remember thinking, "Squidoo, what's that?" No one had told me about it. I was just "out there" searching for something one day. It could have been "Victorian Homes", or "gargoyles", or "?', and "bamb"...there I was. So, I looked around, checked out some lenses, checked out the lensmasters, and checked out the organization. I went back out on the Internet and search some more. Once I was assured that this crazy named organization called SQUIDOO, with its one eye orange squid mascot wasn't some crazy scam, or weird groupie place, I decided to take a leap of faith and give it a go.
Well, Who could have known that Squidoo was perfect for me. I had it all right here. I could develop my own lenses for my benefit or to entertain others. And when I found out they were donating a large portion of their revenue to charity, wow, I thought it can't get better than this. Boy, was I wrong. I found out they even pay you to do this. And, you get this neat title of lenscrafter.
Well, I tripped and came up feeling great! And on top of it, I have learned to love that cute, orange, squid!
They say you must learn to crawl before you can walk among the giants, and so I did. I crawled around, got into things and had FUN!
Others squids said that I could learn more and that there was even a "hand book". So I looked around the place and came up with one. I also found out that I could attend various discussions on-line.
Then I got an invite one day, asking if I would like to try out for Giant. I wasn't sure what that meant, but I looked around. I saw other lensmasters who had this great purple "seal" with a Giant on it. It looked super, so, I said to myself, sure, I will give it a go! Going Giant meant I would try for 50 lenses completed.
So now I have progressed from baby squid to Giant squid but there is even more. So, I have fallen in love with Squidoo and just maybe some day I will make some serious bucks!
I love my blackbox!
