My Untold Squidoo Story: A Lensography

Updated on May 12, 2013

Who In The World Is Naiza?

I started squidooing 5 years ago, August 8, 2007. I discover it through the help of my amazing Superhero Grandma GramaBarb. At that time, I was on the verge of recovery period after undergoing my 3rd reconstructive surgery so I was completely bum waiting and a college dropout of Psychology.

I was missing school so much that I didn't have any means to cope up the boredom due to my condition called "Idiopathic Carpotarsal Osteolysis", a genetic bone disorder. Through blogging I met so many support and amazing online friends some sort of a 'lifeline'. Somehow through writing I learned to take things into a more clearer perspective that in whatever circumstances you are you have to believe in yourself and make the most of it.

I remember my first lens is about the Philippines where I am residing all my life. From then on, I created lenses influence by anything that fancy my curiosity from the simple pleasure of life, good food, my enormous pride in Asian culture, a thought provoking book, my eclectic taste in music and listing my dream travel destination.

It is never really a doubt that I love writing. I love Squidoo and I love the internet. I love anything that has to do with writing but writing about yourself is never an easy task for me. But as I go along the way, I never thought I'll enjoy sitting here sharing some of the bits and pieces of my life, thoughts, concerns and what it is like being at my side of the world.

At last in September 31, 2008, I was given the privilege to earned the Giant Squid Status for having 50 lens and earning some of the spot in the Top 10 list and my Easy Homemade Empanada Recipe Lens making into the overall Top 100 list for almost 218 days. In February 13, 2011, I had the privilege to be invited as one of the Squid Angel.

Now I'm keeping up 300 lenses and counting in my lensography list and the ideas never stop. It is what a joy for me to enjoy learning new things and never stop on creating something worthwhile to impart knowledge and to be able to inspire and be inspired.

Thank you for reading my untold Squidoo story. Now it's my pleasure... To be Continued...

25 Things You Didn't Dare To Know About Me!

1.) I don't sleep with my eyes fully shut.

2.) I can sleep both with lights on and off.

3.) When I was in 2nd grade I won in a Spelling Bee and I remember I spelled "w-e-a-t-h-e-r" and I was the only one got it right.

4.) I can type even without looking at the keys on my keyboard like a speed of marching ants.

5.) I don't easily get a joke.

6.) I'm more like a cat lover. But I don't want to be away with my dogs especially my only one best friend "Inno".

7.) I can stand listening to classical.. Like songs in the birth of my parents. Best year songs ever made!

8.) I can't easily sleep unless I condition my mind to sleep.

9.) I'm an obsessive compulsive dashboard checker.. I know you all do.

10.) I love being spiritual rather being religious. Spiritual in a sense I have something to reserve for myself because I don't want to be shun I usually does speak my mind because that's how God made us with free-will to choose.

11.) Yeah, I love to chat most of the time.. I'm usually very much a timid speaker in person.. I love having a few small conversation and okay meeting people as well.

12.) I don't celebrate Christmas, birthdays, any non biblical based celebration. But I love receiving gifts at times. Don't hesitate! :)

13.) I got a lot of phobias. I'm a self-confessed agoraphobic.. basically, the fear of being left out in an unfamiliar places or leaving home. Ewww.. Feels like I want to cry.

14.) I love watching Asian chick flicks. Though not the romantic side but on the characters.. come on, I am Asian.

15.) I'm not afraid in ghost or supernatural.

16.) I have a natural straight black jet hair but when I get a little older it started to get wavy and curly.. oh, gosh. It's hard to maintained so I just got Rebonded.

17.) I use to scratch my head when I feel so uneasy or well just answering questions.. like right now. See?

18.)My mom use to be my English adviser when I was in 4th grade in elementary.

19.) I'm easily bugged with what other people say.

20.) I usually wear PJ's while working on my Squidoo pages.. Aren't they a nice work suit?

21.) I am easily get caught up when telling a lie. I can't hide my evil smile.. I don't know. It appears.

22.) I'm really working hard for my dream mac laptop.

23.) I think I am more a twitter user than before because I am more wiser now.

24.) I can speak and write fluently in Tagalog/Filipino.

25.) I am using more my Right Brain because I'm a word nerd.

      I thought I was the only one who checked my dashboard compulsively. It's a strange addiction.

      Very, very interesting. I'll be back when I have more time. Thanks for visiting my puppet lens of the day! By the way, I mentor a ninth-grader and she made her first squidoo lens about Taylor Swift...

      It's great to learn a little bit about you, Naiza. I just stopped by to welcome you to team WiWon and my coaching group. Perhaps you'll stop by our team Ning discussion and tell us a little bit about yourself and afterward, stop by our team lens.

      Here's the link to the WiWon discussion:
