Run Towards Giant 100

Updated on November 29, 2012

Joining the Giant Squid 100 Club

On January 6, 2011 I received notification that I was a Giant Squid. With this new status came a quest to make a lens about 5 goals for 2011. I decided that one of these goals would be to be approved for the Giant Squid 100 Club.

Now I know that this next step is going to be much harder than the first round, but I really enjoyed the diary I kept of my journey so I decided to make a new one. And once again, I am receptive to any feedback any of you may have.

Title Mosaic created with Andrea Mosaic. See my lens for more information.

Progress Update

100/100 Great Lenses as of 3/23/2011

Wish me luck!

How Long did it take you to get 100 lenses?

My Knitting for Charity lens earned a purple star on 1/19/2011!

My How to Make a Hollow Book lens earned a purple star on 1/22/2011!

Submitted Application: 2/25/2011

Sure, I have only 83/100 on my list, but I also have 167 lenses published. There are some pretty darn good ones I have not included on this list to be conservative (If I were to add them, I would have hit 100). But I think I have a great shot!

Go triplecheck your 100 lenses [...] Make it impossible for us to NOT accept you in to the 100Club.

My Lens "My Battle with Chronic Fatigue" earned a purple star on 3/4/2011!

My International Talk Like a Pirate Day! lens earned a purple star on 3/21/2011!

How many tries did take for you to reach Squid Giant?

Writing is a very personal process, and each of us have different preferences for what is a good lens. I welcome any critiques and suggestions you have to help me with my application to the Giant 100 Club.

Please leave your honest opinion
