My Very Latest Lenses

Updated on January 28, 2014

Latest Lenses of Lensmaster Bloomingrose - A Lensography

I love to write for Squidoo, and this lens is dedicated to my latest lenses. My life has definitely taken a different turn since I have discovered Squidoo. I spend time on Squidoo literally every day, and am gradually adding to my collection of lenses.

Sometimes I don't publish lenses as quickly as I would like. I tend to be perfectionist,and instead of creating new lenses - l sometimes just tweak existing lenses.

This lens will help keep me honest - hopefully you will see new lenses here all the time!

This lens was inspired by the efforts of Michey in her lens: Michey's Latest Ten. Thanks Michey!

PS - In 2014 Squidoo changed the rules, and use of the latest lenses modules went away. :( However, I have manually entered my latest.

This lens still serves to show case some of my best lenses, and some of the best of other lensmasters.

Written by Seth Godin -Published on Kindle - Available for FREE - Inspirational Book of Modern Day Heroes

Inspirational tales of how much we really can do from the leader of Squidoo: Seth Godin. This book came about as the result when Seth's book Poke the Box was published. The publishers received floods of mail from people who were taking the initiative in their lives to change what they could change. (I love the name of the publisher: as well: the Domino Project - meaning that there is a domino effect to all kinds of actions, including positive.)

Whether you are one person with a lot of will, or a bunch of people working together: big changes can happen against what seem to be insurmountable odds.

Shooting for the Purple Stars

It is even more fun to get a Purple Star.

A Purple Star is a vote of confidence from Squidoo. While you can recommend yourself to get a LOTD, Squidoo HQ has to choose you to receive this. Of course if you can win a Purple Star - you have the right to recommend someone else's great lens for a Purple Star. But either way you know that your lens was given the vote from the Squidoo Community.

I hope you enjoy all of my lenses listed below:

      I definitely need to give my latest lenses lens a through update. Thanks for the reminder!

      I sure do have a lensography - I use it a lot (it helps me keep track of all the lenses I've built, by category)

      I like how this lens presents some of your latest lenses, but also has other useful information.

      So I was so inspired that I went ahead and wrote up my own take on the !0 Recent Lenses and flipped it to Ten Needy Lenses. :) I'm sure I'll tweak it but it's out there: http://www.squidoo.com/ten-needy-lenses-vikksimmon... Thanks! (I need to go to bed, it's 4:30am.)

      Love the idea and enjoyed my visit here. Haven't been able to be very consistent with my writing for a long time but that will change now. Might give this a try once I've hit the 10.

      I miss my 10 Newest Lenses lens. I deleted it when they did away with the My Lenses module but might have to work up something.

      @Dusty2 LM: I hope you left a link to your latest ten! You may not get a lot of traffic to that lens, but sometimes your fans will check it out and it is a good idea.

      This is a great lens and concept. I clicked on the link you provided to michey's top ten lenses to see how she did her lens too. I feel this is a great idea and concept because it helps the visitors to keep up with the latest lenses that have been published and so they don't have to search for them amongst the Lensography. I left her a note to this effect also. I just didn't want to copy this concept so no one would get upset. I did try to do a Lensography but so far the lens hasn't done well in the way of visitors. This lens is very well done. Thank You bloomingrose for your latest visit to several of my lenses and giving each of them a "thumbs up" as I really do appreciate it. Have a Great Day! (^_-)

      I don't have any lensographies (other than my About Me page). That's something I definitely need to make!

      Ruthi 4 years ago

      I think a lens for latest lenses is a great idea and it sure helps me find your latest work. Lensographies are a good way for visitors to get a feel of what an author's niche is (or isn't).

      I do have a lensography and often think I should have a newest lenses one but just don't get to it. What keeps me writing.....I love it. I also love that not only do you feature your newest lenses but generously those of others and just have to leave a little angel dust for this community spirit.

      @BarbRad: Thanks so - much. I have approved your link and now I can visit your lenses. I am glad you enjoyed the video. There is a lot of wrong information out about Squidoo - I hoped to give you something of value.

      I thoroughly enjoyed this lensography and I have to say it is very effective because I found so many lenses I'd love to read - you have a great range of topics that you write about. I have a lensography that covers some of my lenses, but you have definitely inspired me to get more creative!

      I don't have a lensography, but because of this lens, I'm going to think about making one. Thanks, Rose!

      I find these newest lens lensographies a big help. I'll pin this to my board I have for those on Pinterest. That makes it easy for me to check back.

      Wow! Very nice lens! ^_^ It's a great idea to publish one for your latest lenses. Do you update it manually or does it update automatically? I'm learning a lot each day.

      I like your latest lens lensography! It does help to have one of these because those of us who are ol...uhm...matu...uhm veteran lensmasters forget which ones we have visited. I always loved the SquidCasts because then I knew when people had published something new. I miss 'em. I think I see a little sparling dust falling from the sky...

      I think that I will have to pop by your lens on happiness as it looks like an issue that is very close to my heart. Also a big thank you for visiting so many of my lenses today. You really made my day special. Thank you.
