Squidoo Knowledge Extra

Updated on June 11, 2014

How Much Do You Know About Squidoo?

Squids quickly realise that this is one of the friendliest, if not the friendliest place on the net. That is unless you choose to make it otherwise. So this quiz is to help you test your knowledge about Squidoo and to excel and make heaps of points.

Squids stick together and huddle around to find out how to be more successful and what they can do to help others. That's what the many forums are about.

Take your time and read the lenses presented to gain more knowledge. Everything here is designed to teach, enlighten, educate and guide you to a better standard of lens building and to making more friends than you will know what to do with. Are you with me?

UPDATE: Since this lens was written changes have occurred that have made some of the things mentioned below obsolete. We no longer have angels to flit around and bless lenses. We also no longer have a fan club and giants now only need 25 lenses to quality. The reason the questions remain is because people have responded to them and the integrity of the lens would be diminished if they are removed. If you have any questions send me an email. :)

Excitement, Passion, Knowledge and Pleasure

You might go through all these emotions when building and publishing a lens, But there is much more to Squidoo than that. Just rub the lamp and let the genie out for the magic to flow. There are awards, praise, money to be made, people to help you and you to help them in return, forums to interact on and there are challenges, quests, goals to meet and events to marvel at.

It is a place to learn as squids pour out their knowledge and their hearts in ways that can make you cry, laugh, gasp for breathe, search for meaning and understanding and cross the barriers of culture, religion, language and so much more. How one thinks and acts can be so overwhelming and different and yet this is humanity and the variety and motivations, the challenges and honesty that comes through is never to be ignored but held aloft in praise and bowed to for sincerity.

That's how I see this warm, friendly, sometimes difficult but always pleasurable place to hang out on the Internet and write to your hearts content about anything and everything,

Every Angel Has Special Conditions

If you want angel blessings then build good lenses without too many ads and include lots of content.

Be sure to read the requirements of angels on their angel lenses, as in the one above

Be sure to thank angels for blessings either in their bio or via email

Visit the lenses of angels and leave comments and ratings, they need to know you care about them too

Be sure to visit and rate lenses for other squids as this adds to tally in your bio and many angels will not bless lenses unless they see you are doing this.

Watch your grammar and typos.

Remember that presentation, good manners, helpful attitude towards others and agreeable comments go a long way

      Was very relieved to read Tipi's comments below, because I haven't come across Fan Clubs and thought I was missing out on something. Otherwise I appreciated the revision and reinforcement that I do have a grasp on Squidoo - just need to build upon it. Blessings.

      Nice! I had to go and drop one in the end - oh well - it was actually carelessness and overconfidence on my part and a very neatly worded question that caught me. Very neat quiz and very useful content, for all levels of squidders.

      In the #4 quiz "what kind of lenses can you build", lots of people are getting it wrong because they are answering E "All of the above" which is actually true, rather than your marked correct answer, A "Ones that conform to the rules". "All of the above" would only be incorrect if one of B, C, or D were untrue.

      Norma - a wonderful lens for many reasons. You show your passion and appreciation for Squidoo in the opening modules, you give newbies a leg-up in terms of earning points with your quizzes and you offer resources to help newbies on their way. Besides all that, you are a wonderful exemplar of all things Squidoo. An Angel's Blessing and heaps of stardust.
