What's In A Lens?
That which we call a blog by any other name would read as sweet.
Have you ever heard of Squidoo?
Please read the following description of how to get started with squidoo.
"What's this all about?
Squidoo is a hand-built collection of nearly 900,000 pages built by people just like you.
Squidoo is about finding people when you care what they know instead of who they know.
And Squidoo raises big money for charity every single day by donating money from the ads and links you see on every page."
Last night I completed my first "real" lens. (The first practice one didn't count because it just didn't cut it.)
The subject is Straw bale Gardening. Bill did the research and helped write the modules but I put it all together and figured out how to make all of the parts fit into the template. Of course, I was up half of the night doing this but it was all worth it when I published it and looked at my masterpiece of information.
Now I will keep updating it and working on making some money with it so I can retire to warm, sunny Florida and live in the house that I will someday actually buy in Lehigh Acres.
You can view my great lens (which is kind of like a blog or webpage or maybe even a hub) at http://www.squidoo.com/strawbalegardening
Let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is appreciated because I want to make this a quality lens.
